Where is the "Policy Details" column for video ads?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

There is only a policy details column for AdWords online ads.

 

There is not a policy details column for AdWords video ads to see what policy is restricting my video ad from displaying on YouTube. 

  

I know what "Approved (limited)" means, but I want to know what policy is limiting the video ad from showing.

 

 

Thanks

I was able to get it to work.

 

I removed a brand name I typed in the ad and now it is approved. I assume the brand name falls under the AdWords trademark policy.

 

Thank you for the help and suggestions.

Hi;
to my recollection in "approved limited" - not always the relevant section of the Policy -restricting the ad - is shown.

Yes you are right, in none of the Tabs ( Campaign >Ads > Video > Targets) , the button Columns >Customize Columns does not give the option to add Policy details, as it does for normal campaigns.

 

I can only tell you that it happened to me to have a Video Ad dissaproved when the owner of the channel switched the Video from "Unlisted / Public" to "private" making it unavailable to viewers of the Ad just for a couple of hours.

 

In this situation it is best to contact support using the phone or chat link from this page :

Moshe is right, here is the page about possible reasons for the "Approved limited" status :

Thanks for the responses.

 

I saw that link with the reasons, but I am wondering which reason my video ad falls under. None of those reasons apply to my video ad. That is why I am looking for the policy details column for video ads.
