  1. Allow Bing advertisers to target LinkedIn Audiences

    Now that Microsoft owns LinkedIn, I (and my B2B clients) would love to be able to target their massively valuable audiences. Please add these into Bing Ads so we can take over the world together.

  2. ad groups with no active keywords / ads

    It would save so much time if there were flags or alerts in Editor whenever there were ad groups containing no active keywords or ads.

    We are working on bringing ad groups without ads recommendations in BAE and expect to have it before CY19 end. This is an alternative solution to have it available in editor, and we are exploring to have it as an alert inline as well.

  3. Agency alerts

    Add the posibility to receive email alerts about the balance of your clients in your agency account. Get alert by email when the budget of one of your (prepay) client's budget drops below x euro.

    We appreciate your feedback. We are working to improve our email notification settings, so that you can control which user receives what category of notifications for which accounts. This would enable you to choose accounts for which you’d like to receive payment related email notifications, for instance.

    Thank you!

  4. Shared Library (cross-account) - Negative, Audiences etc etc

    We would love to see a shared library which can be used cross-accounts (similar to Google). At the moment this is only available by account.. which is a very slow process. Especially when you have multiple accounts across multiple markets. Please make my dreams come true.

    Ability to share audiences across accounts is in development and should be available before the end the year.

  5. Time Zone Targeting Option

    Currently, when targeting ads by Hour of Day, adCenter bases delivery times off the user's time zone; whereas, AdWords bases delivery times off the advertiser's set time zone.

    Advertisers would like to have the option of which time zone is being used.

    App install ads is currently being tested. Please reach out to your account manager if you want to participate in this initial test.

  7. Account owners should be able to remove an agency managing their account themselves

    Account owners should be able to remove any agency managing the account on behalf the owner without having to ask the agency to remove themselves. The fact that account owners don't currently have that ability is concerning.

    The current process is that the account owner has to go to the agency and ask that their account be released.

  8. Automated emails to all account users when an IO is soon to expire! It'd stop days of paused ads

    We always find that IO's either expire or are consumed long before our accounts managers can give us a heads-up.

    Would it really be so hard to ensure that all the registered users within an account shell get the same automated message, so that we can action this with plenty of time to spare?

    Many thanks.

  9. Option to filter out zero-conversion rows from the ConversionPerformanceReport

    Since conversions may happen up to 45 days after a click, we end up downloading a massive amount of records we don't need to.

    Having that option would greatly save us and you bandwidth and potentially processing power serving that information.

    This is a conversion report after all. In the majority of cases the user is only interested in records with a least one conversion.

    Great suggestion! We have ongoing plans to improve our reporting experience, and it is very helpful for us to know what is most important to our users. Thank you for taking the time to submit this feedback.

  10. Please add a column for AudienceId in the GoalsAndFunnels report

    It would be great to have this column in the report, as this report is the only way to get per-goal conversion information (rather than overall conversion information). If this column contained the same data as the corresponding column in the AudiencePerformanceReport, it would give us the performance data we need for a particular audience to be able to know what kind of bid modifier to set for it on a given ad group.

    We’ll be adding more columns to the GoalsAndFunnels report later this year. Thanks for the feedback and interest in this improvement.

  11. Columns in report Gender and Age

    Make possible:
    1) to remove a column ad groups in the report Age and Gender to see general statistics in the interface without downloading data
    2) to add columns Conversions, CPA and Revenue

  12. Custom Combinations for Audiences

    I'd like to be able to create Custom Combinations for Audiences in Bing Ads.

    At the moment I have lists set up for 30, 90 and 180 days duration, but I'd like to combine these as some users will fall into all 3 lists.

    I'd love to be able to create a list for users who came to my site between 31-90 and 91-180 days ago - as I want to bid differently on them vs my 30 day audience.

    The ability to create custom combinations using and/or/excluding would be a huge help - as you could also create a…

  13. custom formula columns

    Integration of Custom Formula columns will allow for unique metrics, or measurement that is unavailable otherwise but regularly manipulated/created in Excel (ie % of total spend, or conversions. etc.) This is Google (and Search Ads 360) parity.

    We’ve started looking at providing the ability to download negative keyword lists. This should be available in the coming months.

  18. add incremental bidding % info to change history report

    Add data from incremental bidding to the change history report. If someone does not change day targeting, but simply changes the incremental % bid, and then removes it, there is no way of knowing that incremental bidding was applied and then removed. The change history report only shows if days, devices or locations were added or removed, but never shows if an incremental % was added, changed or removed.

    We’re currently working on this feature! Please let me know if you have any additional feedback about what you’d like to see.

  19. Notify users at least 7 days prior to an insertion order expiring

    Please notify advertisers that I/Os are expiring or out of funds BEFORE the account is paused. We received notification that one of our accounts was paused after it was already paused. This is embarrassing to agencies and is completely preventable.

  20. One should be able to vreate folders in the list of campaigns to the left in the account

    It would be great if the "List of campaigns" to the left in the account could be sorted via folders. Or atleast if for example paused campaigns would have a grey-tone (be faded out) if they were paused!

    David,

    We are looking to see how we change the color of paused campaigns so that they are faded in our campaign list.

    Would love to hear more about your ideas for how we can sort campaigns by folders and how we can help you organize your campaigns to make you more efficient. jachung@microsoft.com

    Thanks!
