Saw an interesting column which appeared in my AW interface.  Interested any background folks might have...

HI @Colin Donohue is this new?  I'm pretty sure I've been seeing this column for some time, perhaps quite a long time.

I think I'm with Jon here, I feel like this may be a legacy column. If I recall correctly, back in the early days of Call Extensions/Forwarding, I feel like there was a $1.00 charge in there at some point. I'm going to take a peek, I have some old accounts I can look into.

Edit:  My hunch was correct - found some data.  There was a $1.00 charge in there for some reason...This was from 2010ish...

OK. I've just never seen it as a default column in a view.

Modify columns has various stuff I don't use but was surprised to see it
there in a view.

Maybe I somehow clicked on column setup but it looked like default.

Good deal.

Now get yer dollar back ;-)

I hear you @Colin Donohue - with all the options available now, it's very hard to keep the column view options sorted.  If one were to enable all of them, I feel like you might be scrolling right for days to reach the end.  

 

I don't know if we ever got those dollars back - actually, now that I think of it, we may not have been charged click fees for those calls, maybe it's more of a "Bring the dollar back"  

 

I did find this old post that talks about the charge http://adwords.blogspot.com/2011/07/now-all-us-and-canada-advertisers-can.html

OK. I wasn't as much in this realm in 2011 :-)

I have never seen this column "Phone Cost" populated, and I have looked.
