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.
The feature is in pilot now. You can sign-up for the pilot here : https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8wWZ3S6iDHgtYLb

This feature is terrible! It makes it impossible to see when there are actual errors in editor because of the stupid blue suggestion dots.

That's great that it's going to be in the Opportunities tab, but it really needs to also be an alert in Bing Ads Editor. It's very apparent there instead of having to remember to check the Opportunity tab.
Please make this an alert or flag in the UI. While it's helpful to have a Bing Ads specialist pull this report for me, I really need to be able to get these reports or alerts myself to ensure I am getting the most traffic to my ad groups.

Yes! The alert would be great and the columns showing the number of active ads would be fantastic!

Super important alert. This will help us to optimize/create ads for AdGroups with no delivery.

It would be great if you could add columns that show s the number of Active Ads and Active Keywords in each Ad Group.
That way you could simply filter to figure out which Ad Groups may not be getting Impressions.

There's no alert in either the UI or the Desktop Editor that alerts you to ad groups that don't have active ads.
This is HUGE, especially for companies that are highly promotional and change ad copy on the regular. We need to know if something isn't running because ads aren't active.
