In this article:

Add pages to a report

  1. Edit the report.
  2. In the menu, select Page > New Page.

Other ways to add pages

If your report only has 1 page:

On the left in the toolbar, click Add a page.
Add a new page.

If your report has more than one page: 

  1. Click the Page __ of __ drop-down menu.
  2. Select Add page. Add a new page.

Add another page.

To move between report pages:

  • Use the page navigation to jump to a specific page.
    • Note: in Edit mode, page navigation appears on the left as a drop-down menu. Navigation in View mode depends on the Navigation type property set for the report. See below.
  • Use the keyboard:
    • Left and right arrows, or page up and page down navigate to the next page /previous page.
    • Home and end keys navigate to the first page / last page.
  • In Edit mode, use the search box in the page list to find a page by name.
    • Note that this doesn't search for text in the report itself.

Rename, duplicate, remove, or hide a page

  1. Edit the report.
  2. Click the Page __ of __ drop-down menu.
  3. Hover over a specific page.
  4. Click More More options..
  5. Select the action you want to do:

Rename a page

New pages have default names of "Page 1", "Page 2", etc. Select Rename, then enter a better name. 

Duplicate a page

Duplicating a page creates a copy of that page in the current report.

To copy a page from one report to another report, select all the components on the original page, then paste them into a page of the target report. This adds any data sources used in the original report to the target report. Page style or theme settings won't be copied from the original page.

Hide page in view mode

To prevent viewers from seeing a page in the report, you can hide it. You might want to do this if a page is under construction or contains information you only want other editors to see. When you hide a page:

  • Report viewers can't navigate to that page.
  • Report editors can still see and edit that page.
  • That page won't appear in PDF downloads.
  • If you copy the report, that page is also copied but remains hidden.

To unhide a page, select that page again, then click More More options.Unhide.

Remove a page

Removing a page deletes it from the report.

If you remove a page by mistake, you can undo this using Edit > Undo or Ctrl + Z/Cmd + Z.
 
If undo doesn't work (because you've reloaded the report or signed out and back into Data Studio, you can  use version history to restore a previous version of the report that contains the deleted page.
