Pause and resume programmatic proposals

You can pause and resume the corresponding line items of a programmatic proposal. Similarly, the buyer can pause or resume delivery. When either party pauses, all corresponding Ad Manager line items stop delivery immediately.

Only the party that pauses delivery can resume delivery again. Ensure you have the "Edit sales proposals" permission in order to pause and resume corresponding line items.

To pause all corresponding line items:

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Click Sales and then Proposals and then All proposals or My proposals.
  3. Find the desired proposal and click on its name.
  4. From the More actions menu at the top of the proposal details, click Pause.
  5. In the "Pause" dialogue, add a comment that describes the reason for pausing.
  6. Click Pause.

Comments appear to buyers in their user interface. To resume line items, navigate to the same More actions menu and click Resume.

An email notification is sent whenever you or the buyer pause or resume a proposal.

Reopen and archive a proposal line item

There is no option to pause an individual line item from the proposal. However, you can stop delivery of an individual line item by reopening the proposal and archiving its originating proposal line item.

By archiving a proposal line item, you are renegotiating terms of the proposal. You need to request acceptance from the buyer again in this case. Only after the buyer accepts will the corresponding delivery line item be archived and stop delivery.

To reopen a finalized proposal:

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Click Sales and then Proposals and then Finalized.
  3. Click the name of a proposal to go to its details.
  4. Click Update delivery and then click Reopen.
