No you can't. It's stated in the documents:

"Currently the Google Analytics connector only provides access to data available in custom reports. It does not provide access to multi-channel funnels, real-time data, custom dimensions and metrics, or segments."

Thanks, thought that was the case. I was hoping it might be a way to get around the inflexible real time dashboards in GA.

Hi Chris,

 

Not right now. We're considering an option to set the refresh rate of the dashboard, but no concrete plans right now.

 Hi Chris,

 

At this moment you cant have a real time dashboard, BUT.... 

 

I have automated the process of the clicking refresh functionality for a Data studio report and the script runs in cloud each minute. Below is the solution that gives you a real time dashboard.

Hi Dave, I am looking for the same funationality of auto refresh or real time (close to a minute) updates on google data studio reports. Any plans or updates on this from Google Team?

Hello,

 

Recently, I built a dashboard using Google Data Studio. But, I had to manually populate the data from excel to google sheets. Is there any way to automatically connect data (time to time add ons of data) from offline excel sheet to google sheets and refresh it? 

 

Also any changes made in the excel data were not automatically refreshed in Google Sheets, which is time consuming.

Thoughts Please?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Komal
