    We have started investigating the use cases around providing a click performance report by MSCLKID. Please let us know if and how you use this report in other ad platforms today as well as how it does or does not meet your needs.

  2. Please add a column for MerchantProductId in the GoalsAndFunnelsReport

    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 ProductOfferPerformanceReport, it would give us the performance data we need for a particular product in a shopping campaign to be able to know what kind of bid to set for it.

  3. Please add a column for SearchQuery to the GoalsAndFunnelsReport

    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 SearchQueryPerformanceReport, it would allow us to know which searches are driving which types of conversions, allowing us to optimize our campaigns better.

  4. 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.

  5. Add ClickDate (or similar) to GoalsAndFunnelsReport

    Please add something to the GoalsAndFunnelsReport that would allow us to get the date of the click that caused the conversion. Bing obviously has that, as it is returning the campaign, ad group, and keyword of the click that led to the conversion. It would be very helpful in figuring out what is working, as some clients have a long time between when a click occurs and the actual conversion. Things can change in that time period, and we'd like to be able to know what was going on in the account when the click happened that eventually led to…

  6. Enable offline conversion's cancellation functionality

    We know Bing Ads API supports the offline conversion import in v11. But the current system doesn't support the conversion cancellation feature. It only tracks the first conversion value (and it must be a (+ve) positive value). Nothing found for the conversion cancellation process. If you consider my below scenario.

    Say:

    I send a positive value with the a MicrosoftClickId when the conversion occurs at our side & a negative value for the same MicrosoftClickId when conversion cancelled by our partners. For example : at first (+ve) $4 will be passed through Bing API when the conversion occurs and (-ve)…

  8. Cost Parameter in URL Tracking

    Cost Parameter in URL tracking. (here is the reference: http://help.bingads.microsoft.com/apex/index/3/en/51091 ) Right now we get a ton of good data that we can pass via parameters to our trackers like keyword, query string, Ad Id ect. But why there is no Cost Parameter? If we cant pass the cost of the click to our tracker how can we properly optimize a campaign if we do not know how much was the cost of that click?

  10. 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.

  11. Allow Call Extension for Ad Group

    We would like to be able to have different phone number for each a group. Current system only allow call extension at campaign level. To get around this limitation, we have to create a massive number of campaign, one for each ad group. Google Adwords already has this feature.

  13. Allow a service account to make API requests without a human logging into the system.

    I would like to request a daily report from the API very early in the morning each day. Currently, I cannot do this without having a user log in to grant access each time. Having to log in each time destroys any hopes for automation.

    Ad Performance report shuold have an ability to filter the report data by status active campaigns, status active adgroups and status active ads.More over Status Column also required in Ad Performance report.As of now report gives me all ads where it is paused or active, filtering the data by status column would be more handy to track the performance of ads.

  15. BingAds SDK needs a way to provide SOAP Messages for debugging purposes

    When I need to contact Bing Ads support with API questions, they always ask for the SOAP Request and SOAP Response. However, since there's no easy way to get that information from the BingAds SDK, it makes the support process way more difficult than it needs to be. If there was an easy way to pull this information from the BingAds SDK, that would be great!

  16. bigcommerce feed

    I would love it if you added an app to BigCommerce so I can easily upload my feed to you! It is impossible to edit my Google Feed, which is automatically created, to make it work with Bing. We're part of a huge platform, so making product feeds automatic without paying for an external service would be huge benefit to us. Frankly, I tried the external service once and won't do it again due to the cost.

  17. Please simplify API

    What is it with enterprise companies and the obsession to make the simple complex?

    I have a golden rule, if an API can not be understood and implemented in less then 30 minutes its useless and over engineered.

    Ultimately, all an API is, IS a FFI (a Foreign Function Interface):

    It should just be a list of calls, with their parameters, some super basic authentication with well defined return payload structure. The API documentation should therefor just really document those Method calls and their parameter types.

    But of course, we can't have nice things, and instead we need to build…

  19. When importing the Google Product Feed, you should convert the USD products to the respective countries such as UK. You're losing millions.

    Products imported from Google Merchant Center should convert to the country accordingly, not just USD. Bing is losing so much money by not automatically allowing us to convert products imported to the respective countries' requirements

  20. Automatic IP exclusion from third-party tools - via Bing API

    I'd like to make an additional inquiry to Bing Ads regarding the IP address exclusions issue, too.

    We are using a third-party tool to recognize the fraudulent click activity on our Bing Ads. Unfortunately, because we couldn't have this third party tool to be connected directly to Bing Ads (the way we have it connected with Adwords by putting the Customer ID number into the dashboard and the template link), there's no way for us to automate things and start adding the freshly-detected IP addresses that have been recognized by the third-party tool back to Bing Ads - on a…
