    Hi,

    Sorry to hear that you are seeing slow performance. Can you check what version of BAE are you using? If you are using version lower than 10.9.222.3670, can you please go to our download site (mentioned below) and install the newer version to see if the issue is resolved?

    BAE download site: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=22260

    If this does not help, can you please go to “Help” → “About Bing Ads Editor” → “Create Diagnostic File” and send me the generated .cab file at princeba@microsoft.com, so that we can further investigate?

    Thanks,
    Prince

  3. Highlight changes in Bing Ads Editor

    Highlight recent account changes in bold or colour when logging in to Bing Ads Editor so they can be quickly identified. Useful for instances where many members of an account team can be making changes and can get a handle on most recent edits

  4. Save Column Headers in Bing Ads Editor. They reset everytime I blink.

    It would be nice if there was a 'SAVE' button and some PRESETS maybe for column headings.

    The column settings would be, seemingly, different for each of the tabs... so it should be saved on a per-tab setting. Also, they may be specific to a Campaign you want to look at a certain way, so perhaps having PRESETS with your favorite ways to look at certain tabs in certain campaigns would be great.

    I don't care to see "Expected Click Through Rate" or "Landing Page Experience" -- I know what these are, but seeing them here MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to…

  6. Flexible Start Times

    I created a campaign and missed the point of setting the start time. Since the campaign was already created, I was not allowed to reset the start time. I now have to wait and remember to start the ad when I need to. I see no reason to prevent that time from being adjustable for any campaign.

  7. Allow Sitelinks to run at random...Instead of having to prioritize.

    ...and not have to prioritize. How can we know what performs best if we have to choose the ones that show? Make prioritization OPTIONAL.

  8. "One or more of the bid values are less than the floor price?"

    "One or more of the bid values are less than the floor price?" - Bid minimums are $0.05. Requiring these minimums on search and/or display when one is not being used creates confusion; and potentially this error requiring 30 minutes of support to resolve. Please make these bids elligable to set to 0.

  9. advanced search

    In Bing Ads Editor, Advanced Search > Keyword > Does not contain... if I put multiple lines of phrases in the box, Bing Ads Editor does NOT use OR logic to filter out all lines in the textarea. For example, if I put:

    restore
    repair

    in the textarea, then use the Search box to search for restore, restore keywords appear! Annoying. Then search for repair. Repair keywords appear! Annoying.

    So, your developers think it's a good idea to use AND logic for Does not contain which is inconsistent with the logic used when Contains is used. That's not only confusing…

  10. Import ID Colums within bulk import "multiple changes"

    The bulk import "make multiple changes" ignors the colum ID.

  11. Status of AdGroups in Desktop Editor Should Not Be Affected by Budget Pause

    While working in Desktop Editor, I should see the status of an AdGroup (Active or Paused), instead of the current status. As of right now, all my AdGroups say Budget paused, which doesn't tell me which AdGroups are actually Active or Paused. Editor should NOT be affected by what's going on in the actual account in that way. The only way for me to tell is to click each AdGroup individually and look at the status column in the Edit Details pane, which is not efficient.

  14. When setting up target locations, allow users to draw a polygon on a map.

    When setting up target locations, it would be great to allow users to draw a polygon on a map. My business had very specific instructions to target the East and West Coasts which meant I had to enter in every coastal state. That took a long time and in the process I accidently targeted Georgia the country instead of Georgia the state.

  15. Bing Ads Editor Add Manage Account Search Box

    In Bing Ads Editor, Select Accounts > Add Accounts, Check "Show all available account". Attempt to search using the search box at the top.

    1. It pressing the "Enter" key doesn't initialize the search. It should for better usability.

    2. The search function simply does not work using criteria from ANY column.

  16. If there was a way to make my advertising-dollars work 100%, I could spend more.

    I would like to see more information gathering about what the consumer likes or dislikes about my product like Facebook. Without info about that how can I modify/target my product accordingly? Otherwise, I am marketing to consumers based on what, if someone only knows how to administer adCenter? How can I invest in a system that is similar to running an ad in the newspaprers and they are going out of business because the ads don't work.

    Hi Neil! Can you please give me a specific example of information you’d like to have available within adCenter?

  17. Desktop tool - Create a copy destination URL from ads to keywords feature

    Even Google doesn't have this. It would be extremely useful. And the opposite might be useful as well... meaning a copy destination URL from keywords to ads feature.

  18. Desktop Assumes the Language of My PC's Operating System (I want to Choose the Language))

    When Desktop is Downloaded, I am allowed to choose the language that I would like Desktop to function under. I chose English...and Desktop assumed the interface language of my PC's OS: French.

    Very frustrating to have to learn the esoteric French terms for match type, etc.

    I know this situation effects a small priority of Desktop Users. But in our world-wide economy, it would be nice to be able to choose the interface language for Desktop.

  19. Fix Ad Editor for Mac!!!

    Why does this still not work right?
    Since the initial beta release I have been hoping for the program to be usable.... almost 3 years later and it's actually worse than when it was released.

    Things take way too long to load, the entire thing is clunky and SLOW, I mean SLOW.. it's a text based program there are no images and no html5 this should be lighting fast instead it can turn a 20 minute task into an hour+ task because of waiting on GUI load time or whatever else this program is doing.

    We invest hundreds of thousands…
