LookerStudio, filtering by goal name

Hi all,

I am trying to get a the number of goal conversion in a Scorecard. Is there a way to use the goal name instead of the goal ID in the filter?

My second (related) question I am creating a table that shows the pages and the number of conversions happening on the pages.

I added a filter that display all the Goals name

as soon as I make a select a goal from the list, the table breaks ! Any idea why please?

@cgoasduff this may be a slightly late response, but we checked what’s going on.

Unfortunately the only way to filter by goals in the Looker Studio connector is by providing the goal ID in the filter, just like you said.

We plan to change this in the future, but it will also require a change in our Analytics API, which the connector is using ‘under the hood’.

You see goal names in the dropdown filter, because Looker Studio treats the preview as any other widget and it downloads the list of all results. Using the dropdown filter doesn’t work for the same reason as regular filters with Goal names - our API expects an ID instead of the name.
