Overall Satisfaction with Google Data Studio

We used Google Data Studio to create monthly reports for our clients. Since it's directly within Google, there aren't any issues with reliable data connections. It was a solution to creating monthly analytics reports that we could easily export for our clients.
  • Reliable connection to Google Analytics.
  • Various ways to display data.
  • Options for custom reports.
  • Takes a long time to set up.
  • Not user friendly.
  • Not enough template reports that are helpful.
  • Helped us discover what we needed in reports.
  • Wasted a lot of time on creating reports that didn't look good.
We originally selected Google Data Studio since it didn't have a cost but have since switched to using DashThis.

Do you think Looker Studio delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Looker Studio's feature set?


Did Looker Studio live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Looker Studio go as expected?


Would you buy Looker Studio again?


I would not usually recommend Google Data Studio. There are a lot more user friendly options out there. But if they just want to create a quick dashboard type view for a few data points, Google Data Studio wouldn't be a bad option.
