  1. Send customers an alert if they're blowing through their budget quickly

    Allow customers to set a spend rate and then send them an alert if they're spending their budget at a faster rate.

  2. When setting up first campaign, let customers know they can create more than one ad

    When customer create their first campaign, let them know they can create more than one ad. The initial form to create a campaign asks for one ad but does not say that you can create more. Including text that says something like “don’t worry, you can create more than one ad for this campaign. We just need one to get started” will really help. Google AdWords does this.

  3. Campaign budget management

    I recently had a campaign stop becuase it had gone over the monthly budget by $1.86. Why not have a margin of error, say 10%, that allows you to go over that monthly budget if necessary to keep the ad running. You could even have the option of making the monthly budget a hard (no overages) or soft limit. This would give the user the option to keep the campaign running.

  6. make it the same as adwords! how can you guys have got it so badly wrong. I cant even pause 1 keyword match type without it pausing others.

    Everything you try usually doesnt work. Odd given they have a perfect template in the form of adwords but couldnt even copy it properly???
    Personally i think shooting would be too good for the half wits responsible.
    I was told the match type issue fix will be rolled out to each account individually?? wtf are they for real?
    I tried it 5 years ago it sucked. I tried it this year - it still sucks - nice progress.

  7. Allow me to set a default time range for my home page reporting (currently set at 7 days).

    I rarely look at a 7 day time range when checking my metrics, but the home page always defaults to this (incidentally removing all my filters from the rest of the campaign reporting pages). I want to customize my home page to always show my preferred time range.

  8. Create a report to show how many times a negative keyword has blocked my ad from showing.

    I have added a lot of negatives preemptively, but have no idea which ones are actually affecting the results of my campaign or whether I am inadvertently blocking relevant traffic. I would like to see which keywords are blocking traffic and which ones have never come up. It would be easier to manage a shorter negative keyword list.

  12. Please don't limit the 500 accounts in Bing Ads reports. And support all accounts' “campaign change history,not only one.

    1.We try to create a keyword reports. It default reports on “All accounts, campaigns, and groups”。After one second, it jump to “Specific account” because the customer has more than 500 accounts, It reminders me search for the specific account.

    Unfortunately, I can’t change it to “All accounts” anymore. We needs all accounts’ reports frequently. But we have to separate it for several times, can’t finish at one time.

    Please support that we can select all accounts reports when the customer has more than 500 accounts.

    2.When I try to select all accounts and run the “campaign change history”, I failed.…

  14. Please Add Car & Garage Category Back to Bing Shopping Direct Feed

    At the end of last year, Bing Shopping dropped a number of categories, including ours for Car & Garage, from the ability to submit a direct feed due to "low traffic". I find this insane as our site alone received a huge amount of monthly traffic from Bing Shopping. We are now required to go through Shopping.com even to appear on Bing Shopping - which is a paid channel. Isn't this hypocritical of the "Scroogled" campaign? This means we have to pay in order to appear in Bing Shopping. Simply not fair.

  15. communicate to

    Communicate to account managers when there is a known bug potentially wasting thousands of your own advertising dollars, instead of you having to uncover the mystery yourself and get reimbursed:

    "With the amount of traffic you received from outside of your targeting area I believe your account was effected by a recent bug we had that serves ads worldwide regards of location targeting settings......the clicks outside of your targeting area total $2,186.90." #ridiculous

  16. Bing Ads Editor Advanced Search Criteria New Line (Like Adwords Editor)

    In Adwords Editor, the Advanced Search criteria text AREA allows the user to enter data on new lines. Any data entered in the text area uses OR statements. If multiple 'Criterion' are added, they use AND statements.

    In Bing Ads Editor, the developers put a multi-line text area but it is misleading because it does not work like Adwords Editor does. If the +Add criterion link is clicked, this program logic uses an AND statement. There is NO way to perform OR statement advanced searches due to the fact that the text area functionality is not programmed in this way.…

  17. Please Notify me if there is something wrong with my Credit BEFORE suspend the campaing

    I would like to know if something is wrong with my credit card BEFORE you suspend the campaing; like google does, if they can´t process the payment they sent you a notification that they will wait 24 hours to try again, so you can have time to check your card, in case something is wrong or not have eonugh balace. If we know that something is not right and should be fixed you won't have to suspend the account.

  18. Update GoDaddy Conversion tracking from Yahoo to Bing

    GoDaddy's Quick Shopping Cart is outdated for conversion tracking, prompting the user for Yahoo Search info. Their instructions are all for the old Yahoo platform.
    Someone should reach out to GoDaddy and have them update this so you get more GoDaddy users using Bing Ads.

  19. Tracking indicator privacy notification languages

    When setting up conversion tracking in Google, I noticed they have a choice for selection of languages used for the privacy notification, which I think is built into the conversion tracking code. It seems like something that may be a good idea for you to look into, especially for ads served out of the US.

  20. "Sign Out" capability not available on pages under "Old Version" of Report Center.

    On Google Chrome, IE9 & IE10 I am unable to go to the "Sign Out" option in the upper right corner (should drop down under my username) when I'm using the Old Version of Reports/Report Center.

    Please fix this as I currently have to go to another page such as "Campaigns" to sign out which seems like an unnecessary step.

    Thanks,
    Chris
