New Gemini Power Editor Introduced - Preview

Welcome to the Preview release of the Gemini Power Editor!

Gemini now provides you with a new Power Editor that lets you manage your accounts more efficiently for greater control over your advertising campaigns.

The Power Editor is easy to use and particularly useful for handling multiple campaigns with extensive lists of ads and keywords.

You can edit your campaigns in the Gemini UI with a few simple clicks, and then commit your changes with immediate results and updates.

Important

This is the first MVP (minimum viable product) release of this editing tool. The objective is for advertisers to familiarize themselves with the new editing flow and provide the product development team with valuable feedback for future enhancements.

Value Proposition

The core value proposition for the Gemini Power Editor is to provide advertisers with greater operational efficiency for monitoring and managing items across multiple entities, like accounts, campaigns, adgroups and ads.

Some of the capabilities available in the Preview release include:

  • Filtering: Filter items such as ads based on performance across multiple campaigns.
  • Bulk edit: Perform edits for each entity across multiple items, using Gemini’s powerful editing features.
  • Edit before commit: Make multiple changes across multiple entities, and then review them before the final commit is made.
  • Edit across multiple accounts: View and edit multiple items across multiple accounts.

Important

The edits that you make will only affect the items that are selected. Once your edits are made, you’ll see a triangle icon appear on the items being modified. However at this point, none of the edits are executed. You’ll need to click the Commit button for edits to be executed. You can make several edits, and review them before you hit the commit button.
