Overall Satisfaction with Google Data Studio

Google Data Studio delivers daily, weekly and monthly updates on our KPI. Saves my time as I don't have to import/export data from a number of sources and combine the data into reports. It has a nice-looking report available online which also can be downloaded as a PDF if needed. My daily routine starts with Data Studio and coffee. Lacking one of them make me nervous.
  • Import data from GA and display in comparison to a previous time period
  • Prepare nice-looking high level report of sales that can be shared to stakeholders
  • An online report can be shared via a link with stakeholder
  • A report can be split by segments (like device type, campaign, date or landing page) dynamically
  • A report has many sources build in OOTB
  • You can blend date from a number of sources without using a single line of code!
  • Data studio (as same as GA) is not the fastest, and sometimes you need to wait for a data.
  • Would be good to have the possibility to schedule an automatic export a PDF and send via email.
  • Amount of themes is rather low and there is no possibility to save your brand styling and use it in the next report.
  • Reporting cost us less than before.
  • More accurate micromanagement due to data filtering and drill-down possibilities.
A web-based free tool, with all the power that you need for daily reporting and checking KPIs. The biggest problem is the data load time.
I don't have any experience with Google customer support, but there is a really big society that is happy to help with your issues.
I've used Tablou and Power BI. Those don't have a free plan and I've found them hard to use with a lower number of connectors.
No more manually checking different info about your store from a number of sources. Everything is combined in one place.
