This is a Google Data Studio Community Visualization for customer reviews. Use it to add your latest reviews to a report.
Here is how it looks in a report:
How to add this visualization to your report
1- Add your reviews as a data source
This visualization is designed to work with typical customer reviews data: ID, name, date, rating, comment. As an example, our demo report uses the data from this sample Google Sheet, through the Google Sheets connector.
2- Activate community visualizations
On your reviews data source, set "Community visualizations access" to "On".
3-Add the visualization
Manifest path: gs://baguette-gds-viz/customer-review
Component ID: review
4- Connect your data
Connect each data field to the corresponding field in your data source.
Review ID (1)
Dimension – String or Number
It's not displayed anywhere. It's just here to be sure that records don't get accidentally aggregated if you ever have 2 reviews with the same name/date/comment/rating.
Review date (2)
Dimension – Date at the YYYYMMDD format.
Review name (3)
Dimension – String
Review comment (4)
Dimension – String
Metric – Number between 0 and 5
Decimals are rounded to the lower half-star. For example, 3.2 is displayed as 3 stars, 4.6 is displayed as 4 stars and a half.
5- Sort by date
Sort your data by descending date so that the most recent reviews appear first.
6- Repeat this process
Add more instances of this visualization for multiple reviews. To define which review to display (latest review, latest - 1, latest - 2 ...), select an offset value (1st, 2nd, 3rd ...) in the style tab:
7- Customize the style
This visualization should work well with themes. Feel free to add borders and backgrounds to match the style of your report.
