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.
Data Studio allows you to create visually appealing and interactive reports that you can share through the interface or via a link. However, sharing your new reports with a larger audience has been difficult in the past because it would take your visitors away from your website which makes for a poor user experience… until now.
