Transferring Voluum data to Google Sheets and Data Studio

Voluum offers its users a robust reporting engine with a graph as a visualization tool. Some more advanced users may want or need to go beyond that and extend Voluum's data presenting options with an external tool. For example, they may want to push Voluum data to Data Studio and anaylse it there.

How Does it Work?

Voluum has the Shared Reports feature that generates a link that is accessible to non-Voluum users. This link presents live Voluum data, which scope has been outlined by the user who created the report. You can configure data transfer from Shared Reports to Google Sheets using a free plugin, and then use this Google Sheet spreadsheet as a data source for Data Studio.

Once data is present in Data Studio, you can create advanced visual dashboards.
