Overall Satisfaction with Google Data Studio

Google Data Studio is used to visualize data collected in Google Analytics and Airtable. We store lots of data through those platforms. However, they are not very useful for visualizing that data. Through simple script connections, Google Data Studio solves that problem.
  • Easy to learn interface
  • Versatile - able to select various colours and fonts
  • Various graph options for visualization
  • Easily refresh data
  • It can become laggy at times, especially when working on a larger data project for lengthier periods
  • I can't build graphs from scratch and easily choose which metrics to include
  • Blending different data sources is difficult
  • Increased the efficiency of analyzing >100+ data points
  • Increased the ability to locate certain metrics
Google Data Studio integrates data into visually appealing reports and can constantly update based on the linked data source (i.e., Google Analytics), a feature that neither of the platforms listed can do. However, sometimes Google Data Studio can't generate graphs based on my specific needs (it becomes very complex), so platforms like Excel or Google Sheets work better.

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

Google Data Studio is great for creating simple graphs out of larger datasets that are continuously being updated. It's not the best when you want to build highly specific graphs and manipulate the data exactly the way you want to. Although there are formula functions to help with this, it can be difficult and time-consuming for beginners. Excel is a simpler route in that case.
