Hello,

 

Is it possible to undo removed label?

 

If multiple individuals make changes to one AdWords Account and some of them delete some labels, is there any way to get back those labels in Account?

Hi, Predrag.

I'm on mobile now and cannot check for myself, but if the option is not available in the change history then you cannot undo a change.

Hopefully, even if the change is not offered to be undone, it is still recorded in the change history and one can reapply the old labels manually.

Tools - Change history is the path if memory serves me right.

Hi Calin,

The problem is I have more than 250 campaigns in that account and 30 different labels. The biggest problem is I'm not sure which one is missing from which campaign.

Manually reapply in this case in not a solution.

However, thanks Calin for this answer. Good to know which actions cannot be undone.

Ok, I get it now. So you don't know what to undo, actually. Aside from the fact that there's no undo available.

As far as I could see in change history label changes are tracked, so I'm thinking that a scripted approach may be possible. CSV download, select relevant columns with campaigns and old labels and reapply them via scripts.

Not very straightforward, but maybe doable.
