Keep getting the error - Failed to save Ugh! Data Studio can't save your latest changes. Please refresh the page. Any unsaved changes will be lost. Sorry! - whenever I connect a new data source. 

 

This makes datastudio not useable 

 

Anyone else getting this

Unfortunately there isn't a "save" button for peace of mind...so my way of certainty is to "lock" the file again...top right corner it says "EDIT"...just click on it and itll lock the file.

I know there is no save button - it is constantly saving as you edit. 

 

The problem I get is this 

 

When i change the data source on a report it comes up with this error 

 

I cannot find anywhere to report to google 

 

This makes data studio unable to be used

Getting the same issue here... Within the last few hours, it has been unbearable as every time I try to duplicate a page or change page filters - I get the same error.

if this happens, just click on "CLOSE". 
Copy and paste a component, it doesn't matter which one and your report will be "saving". 

 

Then leave Data studio, and restart your browser. 

It will be ok normally after.

Got the same problem here. I refreshed the page quite often. That helped not to lose data or work. But I'd like to know if there is a solution or an update from Google on that...

I will keep this in mind today. Stepped away form Analytics the past couple days but if it happens again today, I will give your method a try. Still - an update from someone at @Google acknowledging this issue would be an awesome next step, like @Samuel D mentioned...

 

Thanks again @patrick

UPDATE: Started back with data studio and not even 15 mins into my session, I am getting this F****** error again... The funny thing is that I wasn't even changing data, I was changing the color of some of the fonts and BOOM - got the error. Tried the option mentioned above, but that did not work. Sigh...

I was getting the same thing. The change in data source meant that several of my graphs couldn't display as I had copied from a source that had GA e-commerce data available to one that didn't. I went through and deleted all the components that couldn't be displayed (clicking close on that error message as I went). After removing all the components I did an update/copy paste on a working component to trigger the save and it worked from then on.
