Hello, wondering how the GA4 Connector works. Nervous of sampling and therefore wanted to make sure that history is loaded and then the newest data comes in.

    Hi @Sonia_4268 ,

    Yep that looks right. You can also do Rolling Window and do Relative 365 days or 730 days or whatever you want. I do 730 because even though there is no data for 2 years ago I don't want the dataset to grow forever. I need to make a GA4 Connector video, but this one is for the older GA advanced connector:

    @Sonia_4268 , hey there! That looks great! Just remember tho if you were to change that date then your connector would be corrupted and you would have to overwrite and/or establish a new connector. Be mindful that you could even create a nice historical dataset if you use magicetl and combine old GA to new GA4 :)
