Data Studio: time period comparison in all chart types

Dan Grainger 9 months ago in Data Studio updated by Stéphane Hamel 4 months ago 2

In Data Studio line charts you can easily select from a drop-down to produce a second line on your chart...e.g. vs last month, vs last year, etc. So it baffles me that this can't be done in, for example, bar charts to product a second set of columns for the comparison. Would be really useful to have this feature irrespective of the chart type.

I can't easily alter the functionality of the current widgets.

However, in the specific case you describe, use a time series chart, under Style, change it to column, and enable the comparison period. Voilà! (unless I have misunderstood your request!)
