Data Studio: Input field within the report

 Hi,

 

I'm trying to build a report in which the user can fill in a field, which Data Studio directly use for the calculation. For Example I have a customer portal und I want to calculate the events per User. But this number is changing all the time, it depends on the data picker and is not available in Analytics or in a Google Sheet. I can't build a connection between Data Studio and our intern Database. So the user has to fill in this Information manually.

Have anybody a good idea? Thanks for all your answers!

Hey, Roman. Did you find a solution for an input field?

hi, 

 

The only way it will be that each user could feed a chart variable value which can be recognize as a metric in Google Studio. But this doesn't exist. 

 

You can also create a calculated field, but users need to access to the data source to feed this field. 

For example "UserVariable" : (xxxxx*1) where XXXXX is the variable user value. 

You will have to build your report using this new field.

Get a GA add on and get your values in google sheet; in same google sheet do the manual entry of fields; connect this sheet to data studio and you should be able to use dynamic values in data studio which can be overwritten by manually entering fields in sheet.
