How do I remove location extensions at the campaign level?

A client of mine, specifically a hospital, has several locations. Not all of their locations fit into all of their services. For example, not every doctor is an OBGYN or an oncologist. 


We need different location extensions for each campaign based on the service. 


When I go to adjust them, it says they are controlled at the account level. Not good enough. I would like to control them at the campaign level.


Is this possible?

Try using the Filters.

You can add location extensions via Campaigns, and filter which location to sync for that campaign as long as you google account email is a manager or owner of the Google My Business account and all the locations are under that authorized Google email account address.

Filter your addresses

After you’ve linked a Google My Business account, your addresses are eligible to show with any text ad in your account. If you want to assign addresses to particular campaigns or ad groups, you can set up filters.
Good to know

You’ll choose which addresses go with each campaign or ad group using the business names, business categories, and/or labels that you’ve defined with Google My Business. It’s a good idea to copy these names down, so you’ll have them handy when you’re filtering addresses in AdWords.
Filter your addresses from Google My Business

1. Choose the campaign or ad group you’re specifying addresses for

2. Click the Campaigns tab and choose one of your campaigns.

3. Click the Ad Extensions tab.

4. Select View: Location extensions from the drop-down menu in the upper corner.

5. Click “Campaign extension” or “Ad group extension” depending on whether you want to filter addresses to a campaign or ad group.

6. Click + Extension.

7. Under “New campaign location extension” or “New ad group location extension,” choose the campaign you want to filter addresses to. If you’re adding a location extension on the ad group level, choose your desired ad group as well.

Add a filter

Let's say you own two restaurants: Bob's Barbecue and Bob's Sushi. You'd like to run a campaign solely for your barbecue restaurant. To do this, you create a filter and include only the restaurant where the business name equals "Bob's Barbecue."

1. Under the name of your Google My Business account, click + Filter.

2. Choose “Business name” or “Business category” from the drop-down menu, depending on which grouping you want to filter to your chosen campaign or ad group.

3. Fill in your business name or category. Filters will only work if you've entered information that exactly matches the category you've chosen. For example, if you enter a restriction for the business name "Bob's Barbecue," you won't filter out businesses with the name "Bob's Texas Barbecue."

4. (Optional) Filter addresses further: If you want to set additional filters, click + AND or + OR. Using + OR will expand your list of addresses, while choosing + AND narrows your list.

5. Click Done.
