How do I enable the "Ad Schedule" button?  It doesn't seem to be active on my account.  When I go to the settings and "Ad Schedule" there is not button to click to schedule a time.

Hello Kathy S, 

 

Welcome to adwords community, 

Create an ad schedule for an campaign

Here's how to schedule your ad to run at specific times and days:

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at https://adwords.google.com.
  2. Click the Campaigns tab at the top.
  3. Under All online campaigns, click the name of the campaign to be scheduled.
  4. Click the Settings tab, then click the Ad schedule subtab.
  5. Click the Edit ad schedule button.
  6. Make your selections for specific days and times.
  7. Click Save. You'll see your changes reflected in the Ad schedule statistics table.

For more information Go with this link.

Make sure that you are not running your campaign in automatic bidding. In automatic bidding ad scheduling will not work. 

 

Hope it helps you

Hi Kathy

 

You probably have enabled automatic bidding for this campaign. With automatic bidding it is not possible to set an ad schedule. Change it to manual bidding and you'll be able to set your ad schedule.

Hi Kathy

 

Open your campaign in AdWords -> settings -> bidding and budget -> bidding option -> "I'll manually set my bids for clicks"

Maybe you're in the wrong settings. Open the settings tab under your campaign you want tho change. Please have a look at following picture. Does this help? If not, try to chat me up directly and I'll gonna walk you through.

The picture shows up fine when I'm logged in, not when I'm logged out. Try to login first before reading my post.

 

It's late here, so probably I won't be around. Just give it a try.
