Before you begin:
There is a way to pull live data from popular data sources directly into Google Data Studio (GDS) using connectors created by TapClicks' brands like Raven Tools and Megalytic. This guide shows you how to do that. The data sources available vary by brand and include the following:
- Facebook Ads
- Facebook Page Insights
- Google Ads
- Google Analytics
- LinkedIn Ads
- Microsoft (Bing) Ads
Find your Connector
1] Open a browser and navigate to datastudio.google.com.
2] In the upper left, click the Create button.
3] From the menu that appears click Data source.
4] On the data source page, if you want data from any of the first 9 connectors above, enter megalytic into the search box. If you want data from Twillio, enter raven in the search box (search results appear automatically).
5] Within the search results, locate your connector of choice and click it.
6] Click Authorize.
7] When Megalytic or Raven asks for Google account access, click Allow.
8] When the data source requests authorization to connect to the data, click Authorize.
