Dimension vs Metric Issue when Importing Data from Google Sheets to Google Data Studio

I am having an issue importing data from a Google Sheet. The issue is that my 'metrics' are all coming in as Dimensions and there is no way to remedy / work around this. I understand what Google defines as a metric, but there must be a way to set up 'custom metrics' that do not require a formula.


The data I am trying to import includes the following:

  • Date
  • Caller Name
  • Caller Location
  • Phone Number
  • Call Duration


Has anyone had issues with this or found a workaround to change dimensions to Metrics in the Data Studio?


Thank You,
