countdown ads in bulk upload

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I would like to implement Countdown ads across my entire account for a one time promotion, so I would need to do it in a bulksheet.

 

I know I can't do it in AWE (old or new), but it also doesn't allow me to upload through the interface. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or if the only way to make this bulk change is through a script? If so, can someone send me step by step instructions on how to get it done if I have campaign, adgroup columns?

 

Thank you!

I actually figured it out just now. The reason the upload through the interface and the NEW Adwords editor was rejected was because the hour on the sheet was 24:00:00. Once I changed it to 23:59:00 it worked.

Hi Daniel,

Not sure I can help a whole lot with your bulk operations but, I was curious, how many different ad variations do you think you'll have? Will every ad be different? I ask because I'm wondering if shared library ads may help. I haven't tried myself, but figured I'd throw this out there in the chance it may work for you.
