Ad scheduling

I wanted to set up a Campaign on Google Adwords (Cidsplay Network only - All Features). 

My settings are set up the following way: 


Type: Display Network only - All Features

Locations: All countries and territories

Languages: English

Bid strategy: Focus on clicks, manual maximum CPC bidding. Enhanced CPC

Budget: Individual Budget


Now I wanted to use the Scheduling tool to schedule the posts as below:

Monday - Friday: 8AM to 10PM

Saturday: 10AM to 6PM

Sunday: 10AM to 6PM


I am however not able to set the settings as mentioned. There is an error message coming up saying the action is not permitted.


Would be great if someone knows how to fix this issue.


Thank you in advance. Cheers,

Hi @Alexandra W the most common cause of errors when setting schedules are from confusing am and pm in the settings, e.g. setting a start time of 4pm and a finish time of 10am.  Switch to the 24 hour version and make sure each time "slot" has a beginning time that's before the ending time in the same day.
