For the purposes of this article, we’re going to focus on setting report-level versus page-level elements.

Setting Report-Level or Page-Level Elements

Data Studio allows you to set design elements, tables, and graphs/charts as report-level or page-level.

Report Level

If you want a certain element to display across every page of your report, set it as report-level. You can do so by:

  • Click the element you’re working on
    • Navigate to "Arrange" on the top navigation menu. Select “Make Report Level” from the drop-down.
    • OR right clicking on the element and selecting “Make Report Level.”

Good uses for report-level settings include 1) if you want tables and graph/charts across multiple pages to respect a single date range you select or 2) applying your client’s logo across the top of each page.

Page Level

If something is set to report-level, but you only want it to display on certain pages of your report, set it as page-level. You can do so by:

  • Click the element you’re working on
    • Navigate to "Arrange" on the top navigation menu. Select “Make Page Level” from the drop-down.
    • OR right clicking on the element and selecting “Make Page Level.”

By default, all new tables and graphs/charts will be set to page level and will need to be edited to report-level if desired.
