Customer Success Newsletter - October 2022
Userlevel 2

Hello Lookers,


Welcome to the October newsletter, and we hope you are enjoying fall wherever you live. Check out our release notes and the Looker Studio announcement made this week at Cloud Next!


Looker Studio


The Looker connector for Looker Studio (fka Data Studio) is now available in preview. As we announced at Cloud Next, we're bringing together a complete, unified BI platform with Looker and Looker Studio. The Looker connector is one part of a larger integration story that will empower data workers to self-serve while enabling data leaders to maintain data governance.


Admins can submit the sign-up form to get access. The connector is compatible with Google Cloud hosted instances with Looker version 22.16 or higher.


Users on compatible instances will also see an option to "Open in Looker Studio" from Explores in Looker, enabling them to quickly create a Looker Studio report with a data source pointing back to that Explore. This is also a Labs feature in 22.16 and admins can disable it at any time.


Steps to get access:

1) Complete the form, providing an instance URL and organizational domain to enable

2) Google will add a license feature to the instance, and a new toggle will appear in Labs

3) The connector will appear in Looker Studio for users on the organizational domain

4) The submitter will receive an email confirming the above, generally within one week

5) An admin will need to enable the Data Studio Labs feature on the instance to enable the integration
