Where is a Pause option or execution no. limit for an Automated rule

Hello,

 

I've found that an automated rule for increasing keywords to top of page bid runs continuosly even if the campaign itself is stopped. I didn't manage to find an option or condition in the automated rule menu to stop it from running when the campaign is not running.

 

Is there any option or way to stop daily automated rules in the way I want ?

Hello. Use a workaround. Only run the rule if the impressions from the previous day > 0. It will run one extra day but then the next day won't run anymore.

Excelent ideea.

 

I had 5 campaigns with 6 rules and was receiving 30 emails a days. That was a joy until I paused 2 campaigns and I started to notice that was hard to sort from the useful emails and the non-useful ones.

 

The automated rule doesn't even say in the subject for what campaign it made the changes, my first instinct was to delete emails based on campaign name from the last week.

Glad it helped. I'm not using them much. Only for periods when I can't have a look at the accounts.
