This is a Feature Request - Archive Option
It would be nice to have an Archive option added to the status of Ads, Ad Groups, Campaigns, & Keywords. It would be great for items you don't want to delete but also don't want to sit paused for all time because you'll never use them again. Especially if you want to regularly reference back to them for performance data and optimization.
Re: This is a Feature Request - Archive Option
Setting an ad to "removed" status is essentially archiving it.
You can change your view options in the interface so that you only see your active ads, that you see both active and paused ads, or to see all ads, whether active, paused, or removed.
