Add and remove pages

Learn how to create multipage reports in Data Studio.

You can add multiple pages to a Data Studio report. This lets you organize related charts in ways that best support your needs. Distributing charts across multiple pages is also a good way to minimize the complexity of any given page, which can increase the performance of your report and avoid "information overload" for your viewers.

Add pages to a report

  1. Edit the report.
  2. On the left of the toolbar, click Add a page.
  3. The add page toolbar option changes to a drop-down menu showing the current page and total number of pages.

Example of adding a page

If your report already has more than one page, select Page > New Page from the top menu, or click the page drop-down menu and select + Add a new page.

Rename, duplicate, remove, or hide a page

  1. Edit the report.
  2. On the left of the toolbar, click the page drop-down menu.
  3. Hover over a specific page.
  4. Click More More menu.
  5. Select the action you want to perform.

Rename a page

By default, new pages are simply named Page 1, Page 2, etc. Rename your pages to make your reports more intuitive to your viewers.

Duplicate a page

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

Hide page in view mode

You can prevent viewers from seeing selected pages in a report. You might want to do this if a page is under construction or contains information you only want other editors to see. Hiding a page has the following effects:

  • 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 will remain hidden when viewing the copy until you unhide it.

Remove a page

Removing a page deletes it from the report.

Use caution when removing pages: you can undo the removal immediately after doing so (using Edit > Undo or Ctrl + Z/Cmd + Z). But reloading the report, refreshing your browser, signing out of Data Studio, or other actions that clear the action history will prevent you from undoing the removal. If necessary, you can restore deleted pages using version history.

Reorder pages

You can change the order of the pages by dragging them into a new position with your mouse.

Reorder pages in a report
  1. Edit the report.
  2. In the toolbar, click the page drop-down menu.
  3. Hover over the page you want to move.
  4. Use the drag bar on the left of the page name to drag the page up or down to its new position.

The list of pages in a report can appear to your viewers in two ways:

As a collapsible panel on the left:

The panel only appears in view mode.

To change the currently displayed report page:

  • Use the page list to jump to a specific page.
  • Use the keyboard:
    • Left and right arrows, or page up and page down navigate to the next page/previous page.
    • Home and end navigate to the first page/last page.
  • 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.
