What Is a Deprecated Field?

Did you log into your report to find that one or many fields you need are no longer updating? This article will help you understand what that means and what to do next.

How to Fix Your Report

Data Studio

If you have noticed that a field is no longer updating and running a backfill did not help, reconnect your source and make a note of the field updates. There may be a new field to fit your needs.

Google Sheets or Excel

A field may show as deprecated after a scheduled or manual refresh. Check the field selector for new fields.
