Before getting started, make sure that you:

✅ Configured your App Store connector already (see instructions)
✅ Have access to App Store Connect account and can see the Analytics report
How to Activate
In a nutshell, we just have to do three things:
Fetch your data
Add a new data source on Data Studio and select the Analytics report
And that's it. But let's take it step by step:
Step #1 - Install our Chrome Extension (click here)
Go to the Chrome Web Store and install our plugin. Make sure to pin it so it's easily accessible at any time.
Step #2 - Login on App Store Connect and go to your App page
Make sure you can see the "Analytics" report on the top. If you don't, you'll not be able to use the extension. In this case, you should ask someone on your team to give you the "Marketing" access level.
Step #3 - Login on the extension using your email and password
Step #4 - Press the button on the extension to fetch your data
⚠️ do not close the extension while the data is downloaded. It'll take ±50 seconds if you have just one app and ±90 seconds if you have three. The more apps you have, the longer it'll take to download.
Step #4 - Wait until you see this message
Your data is now downloaded 🥳
We can now go to Google Data Studio and see it in action.
Step #5 - Add a new data source and select the new "Analytics" report
You can select between "Overview", "PageType" and "Source". I recommend you to start with the overview and then drill down as you further explore.
Step #5 - Name your data source and explore your fields
It's a good idea to give your new data source a name so you can distinguish it from your Sales and Trends report.
Now it's your turn to build new charts and take your dashboard to the next level!

5 things I believe you'd like to know about this new report:
Currently, the extension can download exactly 2 years' worth of data.
You absolutely can still use your previous report. You do not need to choose between Sales and Trends or Analytics.
You can have data from multiple data sources and connectors on the same dashboard. Just pick a different data source on each chart you have.
When you come back to fetch data in the future, we delete everything that was stored previously and download it all again - within the same 2-year range.
