New YouTube Analytics Power BI Template App Analyzes Channels to Improve Engagement


The YouTube Analytics Power BI Template App allows channel owners and contributors to identify and analyze their content performance across time through data received from comments and feedback. This report is targeted towards enterprises and independent channel owners who want to gauge their channel performance and viewer engagement across time. By consolidating the key data points in a single report, users get a quick overview to help evaluate channel performance.

The Microsoft Power BI team featured our Youtube Analytics template app on their July 2020 Power BI Desktop blog.

To use this app, users must: 

  Create a Google API key with access to the library ‘YouTube Data API v3’ 
  Change all the three data source connections to ‘public’ when prompted
