  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…

  3. 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.

  6. 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…

    We would like the ability to update ad schedules in bulk from the UI settings tab. Currently, if we want to change the ad schedule, we can only select one campaign at a time.

  11. Targeting based on residence

    It would be very nice if we will have an option to target people according to the default location in Bing settings. It would help us to target people who are residing on the country we are targeting to. Thanks!

  13. Support Product Dimension (advertised SKU) Data in the API

    It would be very helpful to have parity with Google's API on advertised SKU data and add the ability to get the data in the Product Dimension report to allow us to better refine product grouping and determine which products do well when they show and which ones do poorly.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Tool Provider Support for MSAN

    Not being able to see front and back end metrics for MSAN in the same platform as their other campaigns is a major roadblock in getting advertiser opted into MSAN - the workaround does not work as well for features like feed-based MSAN

  17. Editable Action Text for Action Extensions

    We're a B2B company and would like to add CTAs like "View Demo" or "Get A Guided Tour" in the Action Extensions. It would be great if we could edit the text within a specific character limit so that we can add more relevant and targeted action text.

  18. Static columns in the UI

    The columns at the campaign, ad group, and keyword level are constantly changing as we move through an account or switch accounts. We would appreciate a setting that allows our users to set standard/static columns for each level. We spend quite a bit of time adjusting columns to find data, when we could be acting on data.

  19. Additional feature for the autogenerated email addresses of paperless billing accounts

    Current situation: Since we are now preventing human intervention by reducing the accounts in special handling cases which may cause data privacy issue.

    Suggestions: I would suggest to have an extra feature in Billing setting for adding automated email address of paperless billing accounts. These autogenerated email addresses do not have someone who can actually accept nor decline the verification request to add the email in the system.
    It would have been better if you can add at least options for automated emails (like invoice scanner) and for individual/specific email addresses.
    Once the customer or AM click the option for…

  20. Support portfolio level automated bidding with shared budgets

    This would allow more campaigns to qualify (reach the minimum of 15 conversions in 30 days) for automated bidding where campaigns can be logically grouped because they have a similar Target CPA. Google supports this but I think it is an even more important feature for the Microsoft platform since traffic and conversion counts are typically lower for similar campaigns. Without portfolio support, there is a temptation to restructure and combine ad groups in ways that are not optimal for maintenance - just to meet automated bidding requirements.
