Creating a Calculated Metric in a Shared Report

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

A DataStudio report was shared w/me and I have the ability to edit this report, however, I am unable to create a new Calculated Metric within it. 

If I open a New report (using the same data source), I see that option, but not within the shared report.  I need to be able to edit / update the shared report, but am unable to do so. 

 

 

What might be causing this?

What are your permissions set to on the report you can't add metrics to?  You are probably set to "View" permissions and not "Edit".

I have the ability to edit the report. I've made changes to other charts & added segments where needed. Is there a different type of permission needed?
