Hello and welcome,

 

You might be interested in learning about automated rules and how you can implement them to pause and start your campaigns as per the desired dates of February.

Did you refer to the article I linked above?

In one portion it says:

 

Turn on or off a special ad campaign for promotional event:

 

Say you have a special advertising campaign you want to run on Thanksgiving Day. First, create this campaign in advance and keep it paused. Then create two one-time rules: the first will enable this campaign at the start of Thanksgiving Day (for example, November 24, approximately 1 a.m.) and the second will pause the campaign at the end of the day (approximately 11 p.m.).

  1. Click All online campaigns in the left panel of your AdWords account, then click theCampaigns tab.
  2. Click the Automate button, then select Enable campaigns when... (rule 1) or Pause campaigns when... (rule 2) from the drop-down.
  3. In the "Apply to" section, choose Selected campaigns.
  4. In the "Frequency" section, choose One-time and select November 24 at approximately 1 a.m. (rule 1) or November 24 at approximately 11 p.m. (rule 2).
  5. Select the checkbox for your campaign in the table.

Hope that makes sense!

I think this should be correct. Did you preview the rule before creating it?

 

You can find all the Automated Rules under Bulk Operations>> Automated Rules.

Hi SWD

 

Personally when automating pause/enable schedules I prefer to label the campaigns/ad groups. It makes the process a bit more visual and allows for easier and more flexible management (particularly on large accounts where multiple schedules may be required).

 

Create your rules as normal but apply them to labels (as opposed to individual campaigns), thereafter you can add or remove labels to campaigns/ad groups when required without having to adjust the rule.

 

You have a few weeks to experiment and get familiar with automated rules so I'd recommend you set up a dummy campaign with a few ridiculous keywords that will never be searched and play around with it.
