Campaign that runs for 1 week, but only every other week. 1 on, 1 off

I would like to have several campaigns automatically enabled 1 week, and then automatically paused the next week, then automatically enabled the following week, and so on.

 

How can I make this happen?

Hi Diego, welcome to the Community.

 

You'd really have to use Scripts to do something like this, so you'll need some experience with (or someone with experience of) JavaScript.  There's some great full tutorials here:

Can I ask why you'd want to do this?  It's kind of unusual and not an ideal way to run AdWords.

Hey Jon,

Thank you for the link. To ease your curiosity, my company sells tickets for events that occur every other Saturday. From our statistics, we notice that most tickets are sold between the 3 days prior to the event. So search traffic more than a week before the event is pointless in our case.
