2 accounts working on the same client at the same time

Hello,

 

is it possible to have 2 people with different accounts working on the same client account at the same time? Or will the changes be overwritten by the other persons changes? (Im talking about the live-tool)

 

Thanks!

No. Promoting the same or similar product, targeting the same audience (users) by the same business entity by setting 2 accounts is a violation of the "gain unfair practice" section of the Policy.

Hi Pontus,

 

I work at an agency where people occasionally work on the same account at the same time accidentally. It is uncommon for 2 people to work on an account simultaneously, because generally there is no reason for doing so. But if one person was writing ads while another was changing bids, this won't matter.

 

If two people edited the same ad at the same time, I don't know what would happen - this has never happened to me. And it shouldn't happen deliberately in your organisation either.

Hi,

 

Moshe and Rob have provided pretty much what you need... and I will add in that the last action saved will override the previous... so, it can become a mess quickly having two people altering accounts. 

 

All the Best,

 

James
