Data Studio G Analytics User Report

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Greetings

 

I have created a report in Data studio that has a bar chart with the number of users that visited our site each day.  I also set up a score card with the same date range that reports the TOTAL number of users during the same time period.  If I add the numbers from the bar chart, they are about 30k users more than the total google gives in the score card.  Any suggestions on how to correct that?  I am using the same metric and date range for both.

Hi David,

 

 

I believe this is because the scorecard looks at the number of users over the whole date range, while the date dimension only looks at users for that specific day.

 

So, if a user visits one day on the bar chart, then comes back the next day- they will be in the second bar as well.

 

If you did the same thing only looking at New Users, it should add up correctly.

 

It's a good point and I know I'll be adding a note in my reports that use this!
