The using of App + Web properties is limitated because of missing of some necessary or important features. But one of them –  Ecommerce reporting – is finally here. Please note that access to the new ecommerce report is currently rolling out, so if you don’t see it right now, you have to wait couple of days/weeks to get an access.

New parameters in Google Data Studio make your reports more interactive

A new instance, a parameter, was added to metrics and dimensions just few days ago. There are a lot of workarounds what to do with parameters, but the most interesting features are these two:

  1. the opportunity of selecting a dimension by the user – it will no longer be necessary to create a separate report for each dimension
  2. the opportunity of enrich the URL by parameter itself – it can be helpful for linking to the single report with unique setup

But in my opinion is much better to try it by yourself directly in Data Studio. I prepared the very simple report, where you can select the secondary dimension. Let’s try to click on buttons below the pictures and check the URLs – the only one difference is the parameter and the report shows different data dynamically according to the parameter in the URL.

Of course parameters offer you much more possibilities as these two. If you are interested in this topic, follow our blog – we will definitely address this topic in one of our upcoming articles..

After this time, the data will be definitelly lost.
