Calculating Retention rates for cohort analysis in Google Data Studio

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi Community,


Does anyone know a way to calculate retention rates, in percentage, in Google Data Studio?   Let's say we have a dataset of some users, their sign-up date, and login dates then we can say how many users come back to our platform over time eg.

But is there a way to show the bars as a percentage of the cohort size (i.e. as a percentage of the size of the first column)?  To Google: If it is not possible, is there a plan to include a function or feature to address this so that we can access values in other rows or indices of a dataset?


Thanks for any help,
