Data Studio Reports -- Sharing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have created a report and adjusted the sharing settings to "anyone on the internet can find and view" but when I use the Share URL that is provided, it requires users to log-in to Google to view.  Also, users on Windows 7 using IE11 (I know, I know) are unable to view anything at all.  They do not get the login screen; only a blank screen.

I had earlier tried to share a report with the share setting at "anyone with the link can view." same results.

Hi Mike,

Yes, a Google account is required to view a report. 

At the moment, Data Studio has only been tested on Chrome. 

Best

Rick,

Thanks for the update. Is there any likelihood that reports will be publishable outside of the logged-in community in the future? If yes, I see a real role for this tool. if not, then I will probably have to explore other approaches.

Should I be looking at your pay-based solution?

Mike

Hi Mike,

For the moment, this is the way it is. Even for the pay-based versions, we'll still need the Google login to view the report.

Export to PDF would be great

I agree with PDF reporting. It is not always convenient to require recipients to create a new Google account on behalf of their workplace, and I would not like to send a link perhaps with proprietary data to anyone's private Google account.

It would also be much convenient if I could set up access control groups and then apply per document. Pasting long lists of email addresses into a popup without any way to confirm which people have access and no ability that I can see to revoke access when people swith roles or employment does not strike me as suitable for any business usage.

Currently, if your browser supports print to PDF, you can use that to create a PDF of a single report page.

We're looking into both the PDF and share with non-Google account options.

You can already share with a Google Group.

Hope that helps!

PDF and schedule email to send PDF would be even better ;-)

Very much looking for this feature, which comes standards with all other google products - including the default Sharing panel which is currently false ('does not require login')

Hitting this issue as well. Not being able to share a report with someone outside of the Google ecosystem is a bit of a deal-breaker.
