Happy Wednesday Y'all.  I'm borrowing this from the AdWords Google+ Page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GoogleAds/posts/PREnxk5vbW7

 

Seems like several useful changes on the mobile side.  Nothing to major, but it's always nice to see them update Editor.  

 

AdWords Editor 11.4 is packed with mobile app updates

We’ve updated AdWords Editor https://goo.gl/V60KaT! The latest version includes support for mobile app install campaigns for Display, app and review extensions, and frequency capping. Let’s take a look:
+ Mobile app install campaigns for Display: Reach people across the Google Display Network, including within other apps. https://goo.gl/tY6IZs
+ Frequency capping: Ensure more unique views by limiting the number of times your Display ads appear to the same person. https://goo.gl/BbN7GG
+ App extensions: Link to your app from your text ads to drive re-engagement and downloads for your mobile app. https://goo.gl/R1SGRM
+ Review extensions: Include third party reviews of your business in your text ads to help customers make more informed decisions. https://goo.gl/Q5c0Qz

I've noticed that the new version seems to take a bit longer to download the accounts. Have you noticed a lag?

Otherwise, I love that it's incorporating new features!

Why does the new version do this :

Once I post my changes, I am taken to the top of my campaigns list. I was working on e.g. Zebra campaigns and after posting, i am taken back to Aardvark.

It's a small annoyance, i don't want to keep scrolling back down to where I was working.

Can I fix this/turn this off?

I haven't noticed this? You should stay in the same window after posting your changes. It might work differently on a Mac though...

No windows are being swapped over, I stay in the Editor and it does this quirky thing!

Wonder if anyone else has noticed? Might ask a few colleagues!

Yes it does this for me as well. I'm not sure how to fix it. Let me know if you find out. )

I love the new features too. I haven't noticed a lag yet. It takes the same time to download for me as the original.

New Bug Discovery!

Bulk uploads don't seem to do what they should.

I am importing KWs using the following Columns

Campaign : Ad Group : Keyword : Criterion Type

Despite having the ad-group there, it uploads the keyword to every group in the campaign.

Surely this is a bug??

In the top left corner of Make Multiple Changes dialog, there's a pair of radio buttons. You want "My data includes columns for campaigns and/or ad groups".

Instead, it appears that you have chosen "Use selected destinations", then checked off the campaign (and all its ad groups) in the account tree below. This option ignores destinations specified in the data, and instead copies each row into every checked ad group.

Oh. Thanks for the solution. This worked for me.
