Hello.

 

Pause manually, enable on a specific date. Not every Tuesday, but one specific Tuesday.

Did I say that? If I did, I didn't mean that. You can enable them at a specific date in the future. That's not manual to me, it's scheduled.

 

You said you want to pause them for two weeks. Starting "today" I assume. And then, two weeks from now, at 2 am, you want them back. Then my solution works.

 

It obviously does not work if you want to set them pause for two weeks, resume, pause again, etc., automatically, starting at a certain date.

If they're two ads out of more in an ad group, I'd use labels. You cannot use a performance criteria, since they're in a paused state when you want to enable them.

 

And I don't think you want to use a numeric condition and use data from the period when they were running. Essentially you need a condition which is always true, because the trigger, for you, is the date, not anything related to performance.

 

Rain or shine, you want to start them on D-Day, at 2 am. Am I right?

Labels, ad group name, campaign name, you can use anything.

 

For instance, in order to start a campaign, click it in the campaigns tab, go to "Automate - Enable Campaigns when", Requirements - Campaign name contains [enter campaign name].

 

Frequency: one time, on exact date and hour, using data from [doesn't matter, as condition refers to name].

Sounds good, but there's no way to do it in bulk (which i was actually looking for, to pause the entire account).

Select all campaigns and use labels if you need, or a common string. I think even "space" would do.
