How to Add Page Filters in Looker Studio Reports

Page Filters allow you to filter down your entire Looker Studio report to a specific dimension. This function is useful in so many ways. For example, if you're running campaigns across the globe, then you can have a top-level report with all the countries' performance, and then pages that narrow down to specific countries' performance. Or, if you're running campaigns with multiple channels, you can create a report that shows the overall performance of your marketing efforts, and duplicate it to filter down to specific channels. You can customize the page filter depending on what kind of information you'd like to know and apply it to your reports accordingly. Aside from page filters, you can also apply filters to individual elements such as scorecards and charts. This guide will show you how to add page filters as well as filters to individual elements in your Looker Studio reports. Without further ado, let's get started!

How to Know the Exact Dimension Name in Google Analytics 4 (GA4)?


You can navigate to a relevant report in your Google Analytics 4 and find the relevant Dimension. For example, if you want to filter down to mobile traffic, you can check the Tech Details report and find the dimension Device category to see how it is named. In this case, the mobile traffic is named "mobile" in lowercase, so this is how we should input it as the condition.
