Data Studio is relatively new dashboard tool from Google, launched in mid-2016. It’s a superb tool for creating professional looking reports, easily and quickly, and it connects seamlessly to other Google data sources (e.g. Analytics, AdSense, Sheets, …).
Do you work with data outside of Google’s ecosystem though?
I’ll go out on a limb here, and say, yes, most likely you do.
Perhaps you’re a digital marketing analyst looking at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, MailChimp data (etc…) for example.
Many of us work with other web services and that data has been unavailable or difficult to display in Data Studio (requiring a sub-optimal workaround of importing it into a Google Sheet and connecting that to Data Studio).
Well, with the launch of native data Community Connectors today, you can now connect to your favorite web services and access data that lives outside the Google ecosystem directly!
