campaign seems enabled but is actually not due to ad not being approved

just wondering if there is a User Experience issue with the campaign site...

 

I've just realized whilst my campaign looks to be underway (green status) the single ad within it was not approved...

 

Should the ad compaign somehow highlight there will be no ads being presented in such a situation

Hello Greg,

 

Green signal means your ads are active and if you paused them there will be no green signal, so in quick look you can see your ads status. You can check the whether ads are approved or disapproved by simply looking at Status column next to each ads. I think as user experience point of view it's simple, easy and helpful.

You could check to see if you have notifications turned on for disapproved ads.

 

Go to "my account" then "notification settings"  and set the "disapproved ads and policy alerts" to all, all

 

Another way to help you out would be to create a custom alert.

 

It's not ideal but if you could set an alert that would let you know if the number of impressions were less than 1 on a daily basis.
