Can't share Data Studio doc w/ non-google users even with "Anyone with a link can view" selected.

Even with  "Anyone with a link can view" selected, it's still requiring people that I've sent a link to, to sign in. Am I doing something wrong?

People have been having a few bumps with using, sharing and editing Data Studio reports. Based on my experience, they need to be signed into a Google Account in order to access it.

It would be nice if we were able to embed the reports in an iFrame wouldn't it?

Hi Amanda,

No, you are doing anything wrong! At the moment, only logged in users with a Google account can view the report. We're looking into opening that up to truly "anyone" but for the moment, you're viewers need to have a Google account.

Hope this helps,

Rick

No login requirement, embed and export options would be great. We made a great dashboard for a client but had an embarrassing few minutes in a demo meeting where everyone was trying to figure out how to export a report with no luck.

Hi Rick, 

 

Do you know when it will be possible to consult report without Google Account ?

Hi Claire,

 

I'm sorry, I can't comment on feature release dates that we haven't made public. I will say that we are working on this, so I am hoping (for all our sakes ;-) that we get this feature out sooner rather than later.

 

Regards,

 

Rick

This is unfortunate. I was excited about using data studio for quarterly analytics reports using a simple share link. This limitation kills that possibility. I'll go back to the old analytics reports and come back to data studio if and when you get this fixed.

Google should make this inability to share reports unless logged into a Google account very clear in the sharing options, publicity emails, and on the reports homepage. It's a serious limitation that user should be informed of before the begin their work, not after completing it only to find it can't be used.

Any update on this? I now see the option to share it as "Anyone on the internet can find and access - no sign in required". But even when I have it set to that it requires sign in.

Hi Blake

 

Where do you see "no sign in required?"

 

A Google account is still required to view reports in Data Studio.
