Can't change campaign end date

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

According to the support documentation http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2404203&from=113245&rd=1 there is supposed to be an Advanced Settings category on the Settings tab for a campaign. I am not seing it and without Advanced Settings I can't change campaign end date.

 

Am I missing something in my account or campaign set up?

Hi David,

I'm sure you are not missing this feature in your account.

As Neha stated, you need to be on the campaign level settings to be able set an end date.

 

Here is what you need to do:
1. Sign in to your AdWords account at https://adwords.google.com .
2. On the All Online Campaigns page, click the name of the campaign you want you edit.
Select the Settings tab.
3. Under Advanced settings, click Schedule: Start date, end date, ad scheduling.

(You can see a screenshot of the page in the Help center).

 

Can you find it?

I did not see a way to insert screenshots so here is a word copy of what ha[[pens. When I change the date to anything else or none it says it can not be changed in Adwords   Ad extensions
Use this option to show relevant business information with your text ads. You can create and manage your extensions from the Ad extensions tab. Take a tour.

Advanced settings

Start date

End date

None
This campaign and its contents cannot be modified in AdWords.
Your ads will stop showing after this date, unless you change it later.
Save

Ad scheduling  

Automatic bidding campaigns may not use ad scheduling

Hi David,

I'd suggest to call the AdWords support and they will check your account for you if there's any other issue:

I have the same problem. Under campaign settings there just isn't an advanced settings where the time and day can be altered. It's just not there. I've read every article on how to do it. It's plain missing! Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

I just ran into the same exact problem....totally unable to pause or end a campaign and its associated ads.  I selected the campaign and tried to pause it...told me:  "This campaign and its contents cannot be modified in AdWords."  I then selected the individual ads and received the same message.  I started searching this forum and decided to go back and see if I could pause it again...and low and behold, all of my ads and keywords now indicate:  "Campaign Paused".    Very annoying.  Google should examine Facebook's ad system and improve their system based on how well Facebook's system works.
