  1. Editorial Disapproval UI Messaging

    Please improve the UI messaging for editorial rejections and provide the reason for the disapproval. This will enable customers to know the cause of the rejection so they can, without having to contact Support for assistance, review the editorial policy and make changes to their campaign, appeal the rejection or realize that their business model makes them ineligible to serve ads on our network. T1 Support handles ~1800 inquiries about Editorial issues globally each month. This change could reduce inbound Support volume by 16% for editorial issues and decrease editorial escalations from T1 to T2 (saving Microsoft operational costs) as…

  2. Give us a Reporting-Function for MSA-Scripts

    It's an essential Script-feature for everyone who wants to work with a lot of data in order to prevent a time-out
    additionally the reports which can be generated by the UI are unreliable and change the language of the report headlines on their own.
    the report-function in scripts could help to circumvent those issues

  3. More transparency on "Other Search Terms"

    "Other Search Terms" contribute to nearly 33% of our search query impression volume but only 1% of the click volume resulting in very poor CTR. Is it possible to have more transparency on the high impression,poor click volume queries so that we can exclude them and improve CTR efficiency?

  5. Script - Automatically adjust Keyword Bids to show on the first page.

    Script - Automatically adjust Keyword Bids to show on the first page.
    Have a script that can help change the bid so it would automatically adjust to be able to show ads in the first page.

  7. Custom columns based on Goals; Upgraded reporting to pull custom columns

    Google's custom columns allow for the tracking of unique conversion events directly within the UI. It is more vital than ever to understand the full consumer's journey via the different goals that are completed. Microsoft Ads should allow for the creation and usage of custom columns, and should upgrade its campaign reporting feature to include configured columns, which would create closer parity to Google's reporting capabilities.

  8. Display Quick Info regarding the 24h review after making changes.

    When making changes or creating a new campaign, it might take up to 24h for the ads to actually be running online. EVEN THOUGH the "pending tutorial review" status has changed to "eligible" already. And the campaigns status is on enabled, and delivery again "eligible".
    A quick info (just like with the "pending review tutorial" on the ads) would be a absolutely great feature, to know what's actually going on. Especially for new customers. I had to actually contact the support several times until I found out about the "normality" of this issue.
    Please change this. Thank you very much.

  9. Turn off Close Variations since it can cause irrelevant search terms

    We should have a feature where we can turn off close variations to avoid having irrelevant search terms. I'm afraid continuously adding irrelevant searches to my negative keywords list won't really work. As you can see, my ads are shown for completely random keywords so even is I add them as negative, I will be still spending money for other trash search terms.What's the point of exact match type if it's basically the same as broad? This is extremely important.

  11. Stop dropping words from exact match keywords

    Bing has started dropping words from exact match terms and calling it under 'same search intent'. For example, they are dropping PURCHASE intent keywords like buy, order, online, ship, delivery and mapping it to the root words.

    For example, the keyword 'buy sticky toffee pudding' will show for the search 'sticky toffee pudding' because they say the intent is the same. The data I have absolutely differs - people do not convert on the root word, or if they do, it's a rate that makes the ROAS exceptionally poor.

    Also, Google does not do this. They do not drop words…

    We appreciate your feedback. We do not currently have plans to roll back the update to exact match, which included synonyms/implied words/same search intent. Our algorithms are constantly learning to improve the matching quality and we closely track close variant performance. For many advertisers, we have seen lower CPAs and higher CTRs for EEM compared to True Exact. It should also be noted that we will prefer true exact matches over any close variant where applicable. We will continue to monitor close variant quality as well as incorporate your feedback into our planning around any algorithm changes. We encourage you to continue to open support tickets if you are dissatisfied with the traffic your campaigns are receiving.

  12. Bing Ads Campaign Performance Report in Google Sheet

    Can we push the campaign performance data in Google sheet like we are doing in below link?

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CXC4aNuElnCGx0zVeS3e10lXT9f6vPQ5SLD1Z6pRR4E/edit#gid=1725893278

    There should be a script which push the campaigns data like impressions, clicks, cost data in google sheet. so that we can monitor the performance . We can automate the data and make run the script daily. Weekly or monthly.

  14. Improving downloading features for Microsoft Advertising Editor (Bing Ads Editor or BAE)

    Sending this feedback as for advertiser's request. Wanted to improve our features on Microsoft Advertising Editor (Bing Ads Editor or BAE) as for advertiser's following scenario:

    For dowloading all campaigns, duplicated a campaign, added over 15k keywords and posted changes Google Ads Editor in like 5 minutes while BAE was still downloading campaigns up to 3 hours.

    I mean, I don't understand the logic of storing anything locally if it has to take so much time to load all the campaigns or posting changes. The one thing I've noticed is that your editor gets stuck at "Finalizing Changes" part while…

  19. Allow Bing to update feeds automatically on a monthly basis

    We are running Dynamic search ads campaigns and we would like Bing to update feeds automatically on a monthly basis.

    Now we need to upload/update feeds manually and it takes a lot of time.

  20. Allow targeting by Operating System (Mac OS, Win, Android, etc) in search campaigns

    I want to exclude one Operating system from my targeting. So Bing must introduce this feature to target the specific Audience that I want.
