Add and edit users

Manage who can access your network

Users are people who can view or manage orders, line items, and other items in your Ad Manager network.

Each Ad Manager user must have a Google Account. If the person you add already uses a Google product, such as Gmail or Google Ads, they already have a Google Account.

Permissions required

The "Edit users, roles, and teams" user role permission is required to add or edit users. The "Ad Exchange" permission is required to add and edit users with Ad Exchange permissions.

Troubleshoot an access issue

Add new users

An example of how to add and edit users in Ad Manager.
  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Navigate to Admin and then Access & authorization and then Users.
  3. Click New user.
  4. Enter user information.
  5. Select a user role.
  6. (Optional) Add teams.
  7. Click Save.
The teams feature is not available to all networks. Contact your account manager to find out more.

Google account ID can’t be changed

Multiple email logins can be associated with a Google account ID but the Google account ID can’t be changed.

The user can use any of their email logins to access their account. The last email used to log in appears in the UI associated with the user.

  • Accepted invitations: An invitation can only be accepted once.
  • Invitation expiration dates: Invitations to expire in about a month. If the recipient fails to accept in time, the user is deleted. Create the user again to send a new invitation.

Cancel invitations

You must cancel invitations before a user accepts. If you don't, you can deactivate users.

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Navigate to Admin and then Access & authorization and then Users.
  3. Find the user whose invitation you want to cancel.
  4. Click the name of the user to go into the user's details.
  5. Click Cancel invitation.

The user's invite is immediately canceled. 

Edit users

Every attribute of a user is editable at any time except its email address.

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Navigate to Admin and then Access & authorization and then Users.
  3. Find the user you want to edit.
  4. Click the name of the user to go into the user's details.
  5. Edit user information.
  6. Click Save.

Deactivate users

When you deactivate a user, access to Ad Manager is removed and the user's scheduled reports stop delivering. Any recipients of these scheduled reports are automatically notified by email that report delivery has ended.

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Click Admin and then Access & authorization and then Users.
  3. Click the name of the user you'd like to deactivate.
  4. Click Down Arrow next to "Active" at the top of the User window. Update the status from "Active" to "Inactive".

This change is saved and applied immediately. To re-activate a user, edit the user's status from "Inactive" to "Active".

How do I delete a user?

You can't delete a user from Ad Manager, but you can deactivate a user to remove all access to your network.
