Filter by label in Adwords Editor

Hi, 

 

I really like that labels are supported in the updated Adwords Editor, however when I try to use the "label equals" and "label contains" filters nothing happens (returns all campaigns/adgroups/ads). And using the "default" search options doesn't work either (returns no results).

In Search Builder, select Campaign > Labels (or Keyword > Labels, or really Anything > Labels). Note the "labels" plural. Labels > Label (singular) applies only Label column on Labels view under Shared library.

Yes, we know it's confusing. We are considering how to improve the situation.

Thanks!

typing labels="LabelName" into the search bar also works Smiley Happy

Yes. Generally, almost any text that Search Builder produces, you can also type in directly ("view ads with selected images" is one exception I can think of off the top). You can construct a search visually once, learn the syntax, and then just type it in from that point onward.
