Can't edit audience or view settings from Shared Library

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

Hi,

 

I'm trying to view / edit the settings of an audience from the shared library but I can't - by clicking on the Audience name it just allows me to edit the name / description and nothing else. 

 

I've been granted access to manage through my MCC, but don't know why I can't view these settings or make those changes.

 

Thanks for any help

Thanks Pankaj.

In the end I tried accessing the Campaign again and now it was possible to view and edit the list - to me it seems like the AdWords interface is buggy as sometimes I can do this, sometimes I can't (the pencil icon to edit disappears). All seems okay now, I was able to adjust the settings of the audiences.

Hi Matt,

Few things here:-

1. You need to ensure that if the list auto populates from Google Analytics, you won't be able to edit it in AdWords interface.

2. You will not be able to make any changes to automatically created lists.

3. If it's a tag based list, you can click on it and review and modify as well.

More details about editing a remarketing list can be found here:- https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/3176171?hl=en
