AdWords Editor. Filter adgroups with newly created ads/keywords

Hi folks,

 

Is there a way to filter adgroups to see only those with new/edited ads/keywords?

My case: I'm importing new keywords/ads to existing adgroups in campaign. And I want to see if I missed some adgroups by filtering to show only adgroups with new items or even better to see adgroups with no new items.

There is no way to filter, but campaigns and ad groups that have proposals under them are highlighted in green in the account tree on the left. You could look for ad groups that are not thus highlighted.

Yeah. But it's not efficient when there are lots of adgroups.

Well, them's the breaks. You can filter so that only items with proposals are shown  - click in the search box, expand "Item-level filters" at the bottom of the menu, and choose "Proposed changes"; or simply type "view: proposed" (without quotes) into the box. But there's no filter for "ad groups whose children have proposals".

 

I suppose you can do something like this. Filter on view: proposed as described above. Export current view (or select all then copy/paste to Excel or similar; or just use the CSV file that you imported originally). In Excel, run Remove Duplicates on Ad Group column. Copy the resulting list of ad group names. Back in Editor, switch to Ad Groups view, and build this filter: Ad Group, does not equal, and paste the list of names into the box - like this:
