Here's how to get started:
STEP 1: Access your integration settings and access the Data Studio settings from there or go to integrations.leadfeeder.com, choose the wanted account and then click Google Data Studio icon.

STEP 4: In the next step you are required to fill in your Leadfeeder API key.
The API key can be found in your Leadfeeder personal settings by accessing https://app.leadfeeder.com/l/settings/personal/api-tokens while logged in to Leadfeeder. Copy the API key there and click on Submit.
STEP 5: Now you finally get to choose which data to include.
Under Leadfeeder website select the Leadfeeder account you want to access. The websites (aka Leadfeeder accounts) are the ones that your Leadfeeder user has access to via the API key.

By having the custom feed the captures only relevant companies to your criteria, you have already more targeted data set to play with in Data Studio's end. Click on Edit on your custom feed to get access to the feed's id on the bottom of the edit view. Here more instructions how to find custom feed's id.
