    Hi Urban-Mathieux, Brigitta, I have not yet used USGS WRET's version of Google Analytics Data Studio (and perhaps we can ask the WRET team about the available features and whether customization is possible, and post their response here). However, would it be helpful if I schedule a town hall/resource review to discuss how Google Analytics can help with user experience research? Thanks, Sophie.

        Great! Thanks, Urban-Mathieux, Brigitta; I will tentatively schedule this as a resource review for March.

      Hi Unknown User (, that's a great suggestion. I will reach out to Nicole to find out more about the Google Analytics DOI policy and include it with the Resource Review that is currently scheduled for March. Thanks!
