Issue with Google Analytics segments in Data Studio

Hello,

 

I have created a custom segment in Google Analytics account and would like to access in Google Studio. I know custom segments are now supported but when I lookup segment for a component, I am only seeing built in segments. Am I missing something?

 

The custom segment is available in all views for the account and I own the account (since I am already able to run reports against that account)

You read this article, but you should see System Segments, Custom Segments, Shared Segments and Added Segments (if you added one to a chart). If not, maybe take a look at your segment within GA to see if the bug starts from there.

Thanks Samuel. 

 

I did all of the tasks listed in that article. However, it appeared after a day in Google Studio. So if someone just added a new segment to Google Analytics, it will not show up right away in the Studio (at least for me thats what happened).

 

Thanks for the prompt response.

Hi! 

 

Technically, if you refresh the page (F5) and refresh the data in your report, segments appear very quickly. At least, on my side, it takes a few seconds.

this morning I could see the "custom segments" header and some of my segments. I could not see segments created 24 hours ago.

this afternoon, the custom segments header and disappeared!

I want the 10 hours I have spent on this Cr@p8y product back!
