Reconnect Your Data Source
Reconnecting the data source should always be the first thing you try if you are receiving unexplained data errors on your Data Studio report.
In Data Studio, go to Manage Added Sources, Edit, Edit Connection. Verify that you have chosen the correct hub, accounts, and settings then Reconnect.
Many source UIs will create reports with time frames like "last 7 days" or "current month." Depending on the UI, today's date may or may not be included. Set exact dates whenever possible to ensure that your data matches.
If you are using Data Studio, add a date control to the top of your page to make sure each of your charts shows the same date range.
Check Old Charts, Filters, and Custom Fields
Connector updates may have rendered some fields obsolete. Premade charts, filters, and custom fields will need to be rewritten.
Re-Activate Hidden Fields
If you are unable to locate a field you know should be there, the field may have been hidden.
Select Resource then Manage added data sources.
Click the launch icon next to the source with the missing field.
Hidden fields will appear as a lighter color green. Select the field then click Show to return it to your field list.
