AdWords Editor: How To View Active Campaigns Only

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Ever wanted to view just active campaigns and not paused ones in the account tree (left panel) in Google’s AdWords Editor? There’s a setting to “Hide all deleted and ended items” but not one for hiding paused campaigns.

Here’s a little trick:

  • Click ‘Get Recent Changes’ button on the top left panel (even if there are no recent changes to get)
  • Choose either the Basic or First page bid estimates option
  • Choose ‘Campaigns I select’
  • Select ‘Active’ below the box listing your campaigns with checkboxes

Voila! The data downloads, and your paused campaigns disappear in both the account tree (left panel) and data view (main central window).
