Defining Custom Segments In Data Studio

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

I'm just starting to experiment with Data Studio to create monthly analytics reports for our clients. We have created custom segments for each client in order to ensure accuracy in our reporting, and I can't seem to figure out how to apply those segments to Data Studio.

 

Can someone help me? Thanks!

Hi Audrey,

Data Studio doesn't currently support segments. We know this is an important feature for Google Analytics users, so I expect we'll see this ability in there as soon as practical.

Without the ability to segment visualizations using our existing segments, Data Studio is essentially useless for us. When do you expect this feature to be added?

I'm sorry, I can't comment on feature availability, especially for a beta product. Like I said, though, we know it's an important feature. So hopefully sooner rather than later!

Hi, Do you have any news concerning the use of segments in data studio. The solution is great but this is a major option missing.
Thanks in advance!

Same here! Our use cases for the segments is critical for the business - we use segments to define different product groups.
Thanks!

Same here! This saves us a tremendous amount of work and reduces errors (maintenance from one central location insteads of in numerous graphs and tables)

HI Rick

this should be an easy task for the developers to add. You have it in the api explorer already and even ga add on tool has it.. Everyone working with GA data use more less segments and that datastudio (even if its in beta) doesnt support this is a mystery for me. This should be prior 1 in your backlog!
