Goal completions not showing in Data Studio

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I was taking a look through my Data Studio dashboards and noticed that one of my metrics isn't displaying in a table where it was displaying previously. The same metric in GA does have data over the same data range though too.

 

The metric that isn't displaying is a goal completion metric, I've tried creating a custom metric to count the goal completions however this still isn't working.

 

Is this a bug that others have come across?

 

Thanks,

 

Liam

I've had trouble with goal completions too. Rather than continue to fight with it, I went about it in a different way. Instead of pulling goal completions, I created a filter that derives the same info without the goal. A bit roundabout, but I know exactly what I'm getting. For instance, we have a goal that counts the pageviews of specific pages based on regex, so I use that in my filter instead of the goal.
