In our previous post on data blending, we covered the fundamentals of data blends for Looker Studio, described what blending is all about, what it can and cannot do for you, and pros and cons of blending. In this post, we are going to learn about each of the five types of blending available in this tool.
Looker Studio blending lets you create charts, tables, and controls based on multiple data sources. But there is much more to blends than the definition implies. In this series of blog posts, we are going to go over the fundamentals of blending as well as cover some advanced use cases.
Our team has identified a critical issue occurring with Looker Studio reports that use GA4 data (formerly known as Google Data Studio). This was caused by a recent change Google made without prior notice. It impacts any organization that visualizes GA4 data in a Looker Studio report using a direct connector to GA4 (which is the most common method). At this time, it does not appear that this impacts reports if the data is connected via a data warehouse like BigQuery.
