How To Get Started?

First Sign Up to a Plan

Choose a Google Account to Sign-Up

Sign up and access to the connector is based on the Google Account used. Make sure you are signed in to the Google account you want to use in the same browser before you click try.

For users that use many Google Accounts in chrome however, it can be tricky to select the account you want to use, if it is not the default account. This is because the current behaviour of Data Studio sends the user to the home screen when they attempt to change their account from the default, using the selector to the top right. The easiest way around this is to make sure to set up a Profile in Chrome for the Google Account you want to use, and switch to that Profile
