Looker Studio allows you to create custom dashboards and reports for data visualization. Using Local Falcon's integration with Looker Studio, you can use the contents of your Local Falcon reports to infuse your custom dashboard with your ranking data.
Your integration with Looker Studio is available with all active subscriptions that are enabled for the Data Retrieval API ("Basic", and higher subscription levels).
Follow the steps below to customize your report.
To add Local Falcon as a Data Source, click "create data source" and search for "Local Falcon" in the connector gallery.
Select Authorize to implement the use of this Community Connector for both Local Falcon and Looker Studio (Google Data Studio).
You do not have to use the same Google account that you used on Local Falcon. This is only an authorization to connect any Google Account with Local Falcon.
