Announcing GA4Dataform

We’re excited to announce a groundbreaking solution that simplifies the creation of GA4 tables in BigQuery using Dataform. Collaborating with industry experts like Artem Korneev, Jules Stuifbergen, Krisztián Korpa and Simon Breton, we're developing a free, one-click, turnkey solution to effortlessly transform raw GA4 event data into actionable insights.

Why this solution? Activating GA4 data via BigQuery typically requires extensive expertise and a deep understanding of GA4 event tables. Our solution not only installs a top-notch Dataform repository with pre-built SQL models in a few clicks but also includes data quality checks and advanced models on the roadmap, providing a complete, high-quality data model that is free and open-source. This makes the powerful capabilities of GA4 accessible to everyone, from beginners to experts.

Release is scheduled for this fall. Stay tuned and sign up to get notified at launch:
