Workaround to sum metrics in different Properties/Dataviews

[ Edited ]

Case: We use different Properties and Dataviews for tracking different domains. We use current no Rollup-Property. 

 

Property A - Dataview A

...

Property n - Dataview n

 

Is it possible to create sum of metrics (eg. session) directly between different Dataviews?

 

Datastudio Custom-Metric: sum(dataview_session_A;dataview_session_B;...;dataview_session_n) 

 

Is such a variant possible directly in the DataStudio? Would you have a suggestion for an alternative workaround? If you have any further questions please contact me. 

 

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Unfortunately, you can't add together metrics from different properties. One workaround would be to pull the data into Google Sheets (using either the free Google Analytics plug-in or the more powerful but not free Supermetrics) and then use Sheets as your data source.
