Data Studio Data doesn't match GA Data

Data is way off for some reason. For instance sessions for November should be around 15k but in a simple sessions line graph in data studio, it shows just 149?

 

This is the true to a lesser extent for other data sources. Any ideas?

The line graphs will only show total sessions by day. I would suggest using a scorecard if you want to see a rollup of total sessions over a certain date range.
I would also make sure that you are not using any audience Segments or filters in Analytics when comparing results to Data Studio.
I would also double check that both apps are using the same date ranges. It seems obvious but it's an oversight that I see with clients on a regular basis.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply. Even with the score card, the numbers are still way off for some reason

Hi Travis,

 

Can you send a screenshot of the number from GA with the correct settings as well?
