How to share data studio report with non google user

Hi there, can anyone tell me how I can share a report from data studio with my client who doesn't have a google account. Yes there are people out there that don't have a google account. These reports are pretty useless if they can't be shared with 'everyone'.

 

Anyone have a tip on this one?

 

Thanks

Tony

Hi @PDQ D,

 

Unfortunately they do need a Google account at present. Your only other options are to save your report as a PDF and send it them as a flat file. This functionality isn't built into data studio yet, but you can get around it by capturing your screen, or using PDF as a print output.

 

Hope that helps,

Ben

Google, stop doing half measures. This is like providing a car with no keys - its USELESS!

You can set sharing settings to not require login.

Hi PDQ D,

 

You may now share the Google Data studio file through a sharable link. Go to view mode > Share this report option > then copy the link under Anyone with the link can view. This will be available eventhough you don't have a Google account. 

 

Please also see this thread regarding link sharing update:

Hi, thanks for the info. Do you know if it is possible to take an analytics report into data studio? Or how can you build the same report in data studio. I get very confused with all of the metric and options. I ahve areport that I sort of Liek in Google Analytics but don't want to have to redo in data studio. Can I import or something from data studio ?

Hi @PDQ D

 

You can't directly import a report, since DataStudio is built more for visualization rather than replicating a report from GA, you'll have to reconstruct it. However, you shouln't have a problem as most metrics in GA are available within DS. Which report are you hoping to replicate?

 

Hope that helps,

Ben

Hi Ben,

 

I have an account with Megalytics that I am paying for. I would like to reproduce the reports I am using there, or reproduce my stats from GA. I have attached the 2 reports. Most of the information comes from events but I can't seem to workout how to get the same information from Data studio

 

See the links for 2 reports. They are sort of the same information but can't get either to work in data studio.
