Is it possible to have "billing only" account access?

Im a total MCC noob, so I might be asking something really obvious or dumb but...


Is it possible to


1) create accounts for customers where they see just the CC charges & see performance metrics? (i.e. cost/conversion, date, etc.)


2) automate sending reports via email?

Hi Taewoo,
Welcome to the community.

No stupid questions and yours certainly are not.

The answers to your questions can be found in the help center. As a "noob", this will be your best friend while you're learning. There's even step by step guides in the help articles I've linked.


Hope that helps.

Hello Taewoo,


To add to the great advice from Dave Davis ,


1) The read only access level can browse pretty much everything in the account except when they try to change something like the MaxCPC bids they will see a message "Action not permitted" , so they will not be restricted just to viewing billing and performance metrics. What exactly don't you want them to see ?


2) Besides regular reports for each individual account you can also schedule reports at the MCC level from the menu "Client Reporting" , as in this linked print-screen (the forum picture upload function is currently not working)
