Error data source

Hi all,

 

I've build two very extensive dashboard in Google Data studio, combining Adwords en Analytics data. Each dashboard contains 11 pages, all working perfect. It did cost me a lot of time to build it, but now it is finished it works excellent and is very useful.

 

However, unfortunalty I receive an error message when I open the dashboard on another day. See the picture below (in English it means: one or more data sources used in this report are not attached to the report.)

 

Therefore ALL of my tiles are blank and I have to reconnect every tiles again (it doesnt work in group). This cost me way to much time and all my effort has been a waste now.. Does anybody has a solution?

Hi @Fabienne B

 

As DataStudio is still in beta there have been occasions where the data sources get updated and reports need to be reconnected - I understand this is a pain for a report with as many pages as yours!

 

Have you tried SHIFT+Clicking on your charts to select multiple, then changing the data source, this should help speed things up a bit!

SHIFT + clicking does indeed work, thank you!
