  2. Share of Voice Aggregate Data

    It would be extremely helpful if there was a way (since viewing Share of Voice at the campaign level is no longer an option) to create a report that provides aggregated share of voice data. As of now, a report can be created that will show share of voice for each campaign for whatever time frame is selected, and thats great. However, a more efficient use of time would be to provide aggregate data within the report.

    Thanks a lot for providing your feedback.

    For the aggregated data for Share of Voice, do you mean at account level? If so, in the Reports tab, select “Account” under the “Performance” category, and in “Choose your columns” section, select the Share of Voice metrics like “Impression Share” and corresponding lost due to reasons from “Performance statistics”, you will then get the account level Share of Voice by running the report.

    Hope the above helps. Pls feel free to let us know any questions if you have. Thanks.

  4. Make it work on my desktop.

    It is so slow and hangs every time I make changes. Fix that before you do anything else.

    Hi Davide,

    It appears that “Pasting” after “Copy Shell” is not working on the left Tree View. We will look into this. However, if you try to Paste on the Grid, it should work. Please email me at princeba at microsoft.com if you have any other questions.

    Thanks!

  8. Remove call extension qualifications

    I can't use a call extension because I haven't been advertising long enough. So, I don't have enough clicks, and I haven't spent enough money. This is non-sense. Advertisers should not have to qualify just to use a call extension. So, I'm calling for the removal of all qualifications regarding call extensions. Bing Ads are supposed to help me advertise, not get in my way.

  9. PLEASE raise limit for more than 75 keywords phrases in advanced search function!!!

    Dear Bing, I've been a loyal customer using Bing on Daily basis for more than 4 years. And yet with all the updates you do to Bing Editor, you tend to ignore the most basic function that could make our lifes so much simpler.

    PLEASE raise limit for more than 75 keywords phrases in advanced search function!!!

    Hi Frederick,

    Can you please let me know which version of Bing Ads Editor(BAE) are you using (version number is shown at the bottom right of BAE)?

    Also if you could send me an email at princeba at microsoft.com with the steps to reproduce this issue, it will greatly help us in troubleshooting.

    Thanks

  11. changes should be saved when clicking a different navigation item

    Many improvements in the new desktop editor. Thanks!

    New suggestion: If I'm in an adgroup, looking at ads and I change all of the destination URLs, if the next click is in the left navigation to get to a different adgroup/campaign or to see the KWs, it doesn't save any of my changes. It would be great if this were updated.

    It's a waste of time to have to click somewhere in on the ads after making the change. The changes should be applied even if the subsequent click is on a different adgroup or keywords instead of ads, etc.

  12. Editing, reverting, pausing, deleting keyword

    I don't like when Bing Ads Editor refreshes the interface (making me lose my place) after editing a keyword.

    Hi Gabe,

    I tried what you mentioned above, but was not able to reproduce the issue. Can you please let us know which version of Bing Ads Editor are you using? Also would be great if you could let us know the exact steps you took.

    Thanks!

  13. Click and drag ad groups into different campaign.

    I have an existing Bing account where some campaigns and ad groups already exist, top performing, but I'd now like to import my other google adgroups into existing campaign groups in Bing. Instead it creates a new campaign so I effectively have 2 campaigns for the same product category. Google Adwords Editor lets you click and drag. Much easier

    Hi,
    When importing, if you change the campaign name in the source google file to the existing campaign (in bing ads account) where you want to import the ad groups then the ad groups will be added to the existing campaign, BAE will not create a new campaign.

    You can copy and paste ad groups from one campaign to another within the same account or across different account in our latest version of Bing Ads Editor (BAE) (version 11) by either hitting Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V or by right clicking the item and selecting copy/paste from the context menu. We don’t have drag drop yet, but will be supporting that soon.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks

  15. support free advertising for non profit 501(c)(3) organizations like google with its grant program

    I feel Microsoft should support 501(c)(3) non profit organizations with free advertising search engine support like google does with its google grants program. as non profit organizations supporting the comunity should not have to pay to let people know the good they are doing in the community and to get support for thieer causes

    We are currently evaluating options to provide an option for non-profits but do not have any definitive announcements to make at the current time.

  16. Why can't you open/copy and paste from two accounts at once... This gets super annoying when making similar updates across multiple accounts

  17. Editor and Downloaded Files from Editor should reflect the same information

    The editor states if an ad is rejected because of an inaccessible website. When downloaded, the editorial rejection simply reads that the ad or keyword or website violates Bing Ads editorial policies.

    The editor as well as the downloaded export (copy to csv) file should reflect the same messages.

    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

  19. Make an invoice for the entire month instead of multiple invoices for the month

    I need to have an invoice per month all all the charges. For December for instance I have 7 different invoices per charge. I really need to have all that information on one end of the month invoice or statement.

  20. BAE- active ad groups filter

    When hitting the Export Entire Account button in BAE, when you hit "active" for only active campaigns, its misleading because it still gives you non active ad groups. It would be nice to have an "active campaigns" and an "active ad groups" button for the export. The advanced filter seems to work differently.
