You can view Google Analytics audiences, acquisition, and behavior data directly from within the Analytics interface:
- Sign in to Google Analytics.
- Click Admin, and navigate to the account/property/view you wish to visualize.
- Integration with Data Studio is only available for Web properties.
- Navigate to Customization > Dashboards or Customization > Custom reports.
- At the top of the page, click one of the links to open a Data Studio template populated with your data.
In a moment, you'll see the data from your current view in a polished Data Studio report template.
Use the template
Here are some things you can do with the template:
- Use the filter controls at the top to refine the data. For example, set the Continent to North America, the Region to California, and the Channel to Direct, Organic Search, and Social.
- Change the date range. For example, use the preset options to select the last 7 days, or set a custom date range.
- Interact with the charts by using your mouse to explore the data. For example, some charts let you drill down by clicking a dimension value, or add optional metrics by selecting them from the chart header.
- Filter the report by clicking a slice in a Pie chart, or a bar in a Bar chart.
