Hi @Thaddeus G,


If they are new campaigns, it can take a few days to get going.


What is your daily budget? If it is set too low, they may not show much and therefore you will not see them available very often. And what is your default max cost per click? If this is set too low, it would cause you to not see them available very often, too. 


Open AdWords, click on All Campaigns in the left hand menu column, then review what is shown for these campaigns you are concerned with. Next, look for the Display tab and see if any actions are shown there. 


Please let us know what you discover.


Kind Regards,
