AdMob is constantly working on improving change history. This means that you can expect new changes to be added to change history over time. Note that new changes only affect events that occur after they've been added to change history - they're not retroactive. For example, if a new change is added on March 31, 2022, you won't find instances of that change in your account prior to March 31, 2022. 

User column

The user column lets you know which one of the following users made the change:

  • The email of the user who made the change. 
  • User at [MCM partner company]. This will only appear if you're in an MCM agreement
  • Google. This means that an AdMob representative made the change.
