Pulling in a Google Analytics Custom Report

I give up ... I assume this is not only possible, but easy, but I just can't figure it out. I have a Custom Report in Google Analytics (for 404s). I cannot figure out how to pull that into a Google Data Studio chart (I can't find the Custom Report anywhere in GDS). 

 

Please and thanks.

I am new as well but I will give my 2 cents 

 

When you connect GDS to the analytics account it will pull in the whole account not just a custom report.

Once you have connected the account you should be able to load a table and create a dimensions based off of you 404 page.

 

I found the help google files to be a little confusing. I just loaded this template

and played around with it until I got what I wanted.

 

Hope that helps.

thank you for the link.

 

I couldn't figure out how to pull the Custom Report straight in, so I replicated it in GDS -- basically just re-created it from scratch, which didn't take long. 

 

if there's a way to directly pull in a Custom Report, I couldn't find that. Not a big deal, in the end.
