how to permit others to "create a new metric" ?

Hi!

 

I'd like to pass the full permission of data studio reports what I've created, 

and I've made my colleagues owners of the reports.

However the button "create a new metric" is not visible for them yet.

How can I pass the whole permission?

 

Best,

Michi

Hi @techeten

 

Although I've not done this myself, i would firstly check their permissions on the data source at source level, I wouldn't think this should have an impact, but worth checking! If you've done that then it may be that it's not possible to give other users access to the data source at this time. Checking on reports that have been shared with me, I note that I cannot edit the data source, so this would seem to be the case.

 

Hope that helps,

Ben

Hi Ben,

 

Thanks for your kind response.

I have tried several times and found a way to do it.

According to your advice, I have shared the data source with colleagues, and then they can add metrics from

1. invitation mail link and 2. data source edit button,

but still not visible the button "create a new metric", its weird.

 

Anyway my problem is solved, I appreciated your kind help.

 

Best,

Michi
