Real Time Dashboard Data Studio, Data Streaming, Real Time Google Analytics API
Hi, i wanted to create a realtime dashboard with Data Studio. Why?
- Display active viewers of a page and create a sense of urgency for users looking at an item with finite inventory.
- Display the most popular content such as the top 10 active pages.
Create and display a real time
dashboard (TV Campaign Traffic).
GA Chrome Extension / Supermetrics Connector can update data in spreadsheet in 1 hour intervals (too slow for our case but GA data export is possible).
Problem data in BigQuery are also buffered or updated with a delay. 1-10 Data updates per second are not possible.
I am not a Dev who could write himself a script to export data via Live / Realtime GA API into e.g. spreadsheet / BigQ.
- Should you query the data via GA Real Time API or "streaming"?
- Will be this case possible in the near future to be implemented with a spreadsheet and supermetrics?
I found also follow smart instructions:
but I could not reproduce the instructions. I could not creat a SuperProxy or start a Google Cloud Service (instructions i think are not uptodate). Has anyone already implemented this case?
