This video covers creating/converting a Google Analytics 4 traffic acquisition dashboard from a Universal Analytics dashboard in Data Studio. This dashboard leverages the Google Analytics Acquisitions Overview template available in Data Studio (link below).
The template, however, is for Universal Analytics properties so you need to convert dimensions and metrics to what’s available in Google Analytics 4. Some metrics do require creating calculated fields in order to recreate what you might be used to seeing in Universal Analytics.
