Adwords MCC, client name change

Top Contributor

Didn't see which area I could post this. As I spend all my time in PLA. So I'll post it here.

 

I recently changed one of my clients name to better recognize it. Today he sent me an email that he changed it back.

 

Which perplexed me that the name that I can edit and see is the Clients account name. Which doesn't make much sense to me.

 

When you add existing clients to MCC it will show you an empty field where you can add a name. So I always add the name that I can identify by. Having allot of clients each of them will have all sorts of company or personal names.

 

So I guess my question is, how is this even possible and why can't I change it just for my own MCC account, without effecting there account?

Yes, that could be the only possibility since client name is for manager's reference, which is not even visible in the child account interface.

I believe client name in the MCC interface is for client manager's reference and clients wouldn't be able to change it. Are you able to see the change made by your client?

It doesn't matter what your client name is. You change account name according to your convenient when create account or pull existing account into your MCC.

Just mouse over on account name and click on pencil Icon. Account name is editable.

Hope It will be Helpful.

Thanks,

I think maybe my client is using MCC, as I remember he said he is an agency when he hired me. So I guess other Parent or child MCC can change this.

I think i'm starting to puzzle together what is going on Smiley Happy

@Virendra Kumar, yes I did that, than the next day he changed it. I'm guessing he is also an MCC?

This is the first time I have added another MCC I think. I have always added the client directly before.
