Why Data Studio is a NO GO at the moment

Three points that ruins Data Studio as a reporting solution for us unfortunately:

  1. You can't share reports. All sharing options require to sign-in to Google account, even though some of them claim 'no sign-in required'. So, sending a link to your clients saying 'hey, here is a link to your report' is not gonna work.
  2. You can't export reports to PDF. Want to leave a couple of report copies for your client's staff who didn't attend meeting? Forget it.
  3. Reports are not mobile-friendly. Are your clients often on the go?

There are other things that also limit it - you can't embed reports into your own web portal. Also, not sure about mobile app.

But, there is always a hope, of course, that these issues will be fixed, some day, probably.

Well, 

You Can Press Print on your Browser and select Print to PDF. Only works for 1 page reports, that don't need interactivity.
