  1. I'd like to "easily" generate a DayParting Report for at least a year across the account and adgroups.

    Right now I am trying to generate Dayparting reports for many of my adgroups. Currently in Bing I can get hourly data for up to six months but it doesn't break that data down by day of the week. Through some Excel wizardry I am able to assign Days to Dates, but It would be awesome if this was available as a report in Bing where I can generate a report for the full year of 2014 where I can see who adgroups perform hourly by the day of the week.

    This of course directly translates to how I would…

  2. Like your basic ads, there needs to be a live way that an advertiser can review how their Site Extensions will appear.

  3. Please allow for the modification of the email subject line for auto-generated reports

    This would allow for easier filtering of incoming reports and aid in the quality assurance process.

  4. Add Lables column to reports

    It would be useful to add label column to reports at least at the Campaign, Ad Group, Keywords and Goals level. Currently, I have to use vlookup after exporting multiple reports from both UI and Reporting sections.

  6. Create Conversion Tracking Code to Track Phone Call Durations

    Please add a Conversion Tracking type to track call durations as a conversion. Basically you have the call duration info in the Call Forwarding Details. All you would need to do is add another Conversion Tracking type for "Call Duration Conversions" which advertisers could specify a xx sec call = a conversion. That conversion then would be added to the conversion column and figure into the CPA so the Target CPA would then be figured correctly. Without this, the reports will always show 0 conversions on calls that actually converted. The way it is would eventually kill all traffic when…

  7. Add a field for current campaign budget to campaigns report

    Currently, the ONLY sad way of pulling a report containing the "Budget" column is to do it each account at a time. You can't pull it from the "Reports" section (In any Budgets and Billing report type) nor through the API. It's just not a field that has been exposed (for some reason).

    What I want to be able to do is simple: pull a campaign report from the API or the UI to get the current campaign budget amounts for each campaign across accounts I select.

    Ex. Header: Account name, Campaign name, Budget, ...

  8. Disapproved reason for report

    It would be useful if we could download a report of Ads and Kwds with a column for disapproved reason, to analyse how many rejected elements we have segmented by reason.

  9. Increase data set for segmentation in the UI

    Supporting segmentation of performance by day over a longer period would make reporting that much easier.

  11. Add CPA to goals report- I have an advertiser that has multiple goals and would like to be able to see the CPA for each individual goal.

    Advertisers with multiple conversion goals are not able to see separate CPA metrics with the current goals report- also if there was a way to implement goals in the campaign view that would be ideal.

  12. Reports

    Hi Bing Ads,

    I wanted to raise a suggestion on your reporting. I suggest that you include a webquery report. This way if we run a report, it will be stored in URL and connect it to Excel. That way, we can easily refresh the page and get the report that we want in Excel.

  13. Geolocation Report

    It will be super useful if the geolocation report could break down the information at the keyword level. That way we can see which keyword received the click and from where on the same report.

  15. Add BMM as a match type for reporting filters in the UI

    In the reporting for search terms/keywords, you can sort by Exact, Phrase, and Broad. You cannot sort by BMM and instead have to manually look for keywords with “+”.

  16. Search term query report

    Hi,

    Currently the ST report allows us to generate report only for selected keywords on the first page. I feel option of "All" should also be there under the drop down menu in : "Keywords>Details>Search Term>All, Selected".

    Currently it is like this "Keywords>Details>Search Term>Selected"

    Its a small feature but it helps a lot when we have to focus on many other things then selecting page one by one to generate report.

  17. Need True Entire Time Statistics Available, Especially for Bing Ad Editor, Not Just 366 Days or 2 Years, Follow Google AdWords

    How is it possible that Bing still does not allow reporting of more than 2 years? We want to look at data going back as far as it goes. Google has always offered this. There are NO time restrictions in viewing statistics on either the online interface or AdWords Editor. What is even worse, while you can view up to 2 years on the online interface with Bing, you can only view 366 days with Bing Ads Editor! How is this even possible? Normally Bing just copies Google with everything, and for the most part, that is good as AdWords…

  20. When running report, have the newest report pop up

    Right now when I run a report, the window automatically opens the last run report in the report history tab, rather than opening the progress window for the report I'm running. This is confusing and often leads to downloading wrong report if I am not clever enough to give each report a unique name.

    It also would be nice when selecting options for a report, for instance switching between keyword and adgroup reports, if the settings such as date didn't reset. Also when changing the report from summary to daily etc, please don't change the dates. In addition please let…
