Community visualizations (Developer Preview)

Display your data in new and interesting ways.

Community visualizations are charts created by third-party developers that work with your data and can be configured just like Data Studio's default charts.

Community visualizations display data from your data source. Although the community visualization can't access your data directly, you should still be sure you trust the developer of any community visualizations you add to your reports.

This feature is currently in Beta and is intended to let you try out community visualizations and give us feedback. Learn more about the community visualization program and see featured charts in the developer documentation. Available visualizations can be found in the community gallery.
