View changes to your account (Beta)

This feature is currently in beta release to a limited group of publishers.

Change history provides you with an overview of historical changes to your account. It includes details such as when and where the change was made and who made it.    

Change history can help you troubleshoot anomalies in your account. For example, if you noticed a drop in revenue on a certain date, you can search for changes made to your account around that date to see what may have caused the drop. 

To see your account’s change history:

  1. Sign in to your AdMob account at https://apps.admob.com.
  2. Click Change history in the sidebar.

Change details

Change history includes app-level and account-level changes. For all changes, the following details are available:

  • The date and time the change was made.
  • The item that changed. If the item is hyperlinked, you can click to see where the change was made. For example, if you changed the ad type on an ad unit, the link will take you to the ad unit that was changed. 
  • The type of change. For example, “Added app."
  • The user who made the change. Learn more.

Click Down Arrow to expand more details about the changes, including a list of all affected items and a detailed description of the changes. 

Finding changes

To locate a change, type an item or change into the search bar. You can also apply a filter to search for specific changes.

Date range filter

The date filter helps you narrow the range of changes in change history. You can select an explicit date using the calendar, or select a relative date, such as “Today” or “Last 7 days”. This filter is applied by default, but you can edit the filter to change the default settings.

To make changes to the date filter:

  2. Select a relative date range from the list or specify an exact date range using the calendar.
  3. Click Apply
