Hi,
I would try to import my Custom Channels Grouping from Analytics to Data Studio.
If not, is there a way to create Custom Channel Grouping directly in Data Studio ?
Regards.

Hi Guillaume - Unfortunately the custom channel grouping dimension is not available through the API, and as such, will not be available in Data Studio.


You can create your own custom channel groupings by creating a calculated field, then using the Case function to define your rules.

Think this should be something which Google look to add to the connection. Frustrating to duplicate efforts in both platforms.

100% Agree. This is an ongoing painpoint and huge time-suck on my team as we are constantly problem solving to find discrepancies between channel groupings in GA and DS.

This would be a huge feature update. Should be relatively simple as well. As with all Google products however I'm sure the analytics team and the data studio team only have the occasional lunch together.
