Just logged in and not seeing dashboard

I am new to google ad words and when i log in I don't get the dashboard that is in the video.  It drops me into this generic screen called my first campaign.  I can't name it or anything.  Is something wrong?

Good morning.


No, the dashboard isn't accessible until you have created a campaign. The screens are designed to walk you through the steps the first time, to help new advertisers be familiar with the parts of the campaign.


I recommend that you go ahead and test the campaign creation process, moving through the steps. You don't have to use that campaign in your advertising if you don't want to--you can pause it or edit it any way you want later.
