It's now possible to use formula metrics in Data Studio Views.

When you using Funnel's Google Data Studio connector, we recommended connecting to a View. Using a View will let you select which fields to expose in Google Data Studio and gives you the ability to apply filters. This will improve the performance of your dashboards.

Before, you could only use metrics that were rule-based . Now you can also use formula metrics. When you choose a formula metric, the underlying metrics that the formula is based on will automatically be included. 

For example, the 'CPC' metric a is based on 'Cost' and 'Clicks'...

To read more about the difference  between formula and rule-based metrics see: Can Funnel export custom metrics to data studio?
