Managing other people's ads

I manage adwords for a couple of my friends. I used to just log out of my own account and sign in to theirs, but now I can't do that.

How can I organise access to their accounts now?

Hi Nick B,

 

If your e-mail id is associated with an adwords account you won't be able to use that id to create or to link to other adwords account.Create an MCC account as Rakesh suggested above with a new id and link all your friend's adwords account to that MCC.So it will be more manageable for you.you can manage multiple AdWords accounts quickly and easily from a single location.

Hi Nick,

Welcome to AdWords CommunitySmiley Happy

Yes you can manage the multiple AdWords Account at single. You need to create the My Client Center (MCC) Account. Mcc allows you to manage the multiple AdWords account at single plateform.

Here you can read about My Client center account:-

Hi,
From reading the MCC stuff it seems to be way above my level. I don't do it on a commercial basis, just as a favour for a couple of friends.
I only have one email and it's linked to my own adwords account, so they can't add me as a user. If I try to create a new account it demands that I link it to my existing account.
Is there any other way of getting round this?
