Using analytics segments as Data Studio Filter

Hi,

 

Is it possible to use predefined Analytics segments as filters in Data Studio? I know I can use segments in each individual query but what I want is a drop down at the top so users can select a segment to apply to the whole sheet (similar to how GA works).

 

The reason for this is we have cross domain tracking setup across 18 websites, so want to be able to check all sites with one sheet without having 18+ pages.

 

Thanks

You use standard segments from GA or you have your custom segments?

We are using custom segments built in GA, they look like: [include] Hostname -> Equals -> example.com

Well, in every chart, you have the option to use a Google Segment (scroll the right pane to the bottom and you will find the segment option). Otherwise, you can choose a specific segment for the whole dashboard but I don't think it's what you are looking for. You should be able to pick up your GA segments from these places.
