Add Custom Dimension/Metric doesn't show

Hi 

 

I am working on Data Studio report that was shared with me. I have edit access, and access to the data source GA account. However, when I try to add custom dimension or metrics I can't see the add option...

 

Has anyone had the same issue? Is it a system bug, or the option is just not available?

 

Thanks

Yes, it seems like you can only edit data source columns if you are logged in as the account that originally added the data source. So you will either need access to the other account or you will need to re-add the data source from your account if you want to edit custom dimensions/metrics.

Thanks. Yes, it works now that I re-added the sources. Not ideal - but I guess we will have to use that.
