Accept or reject proposed changes

When you review proposed changes in AdWords Editor, you can edit or reject any changes that you don't want to keep. Changes that you don't edit or reject will automatically be accepted. You can reject or accept changes individually or in bulk.

Option 1: Accept or reject changes individually

You can take any of the following actions on individual proposed changes:

  • Reject the proposed edit entirely.
    1. Select the row containing the edit you want to reject.
    2. Click Reject selected proposals in the tab toolbar, or select Edit > Reject selected proposals.
    3. Note: In the case of a new proposed ad group or campaign, this will also reject any of the proposed edits within the ad group or campaign.

  • Edit the proposed change. Select the row containing the change and make your edits inline or in the edit panel.

  • Reject aspects of the proposed edit that conflict with your own unposted changes. (For example, you can reject someone's suggestion for a new keyword maximum cost-per-click (CPC) bid, but keep the proposed URL change.)
    1. Select the row containing the edit you want to reject.
    2. Select Edit > Reject selected conflicting proposals.

  • Accept the proposed change by reverting your conflicting unposted change. (For example, if you like the proposed ad text better than your own new ad text, revert your own changes to accept the proposed change.)
    1. Select the row containing the edit you want to revert.
    2. Click Revert selected changes in the tab toolbar. This only affects your unposted edits, not the proposed changes.

Once you've reviewed the proposed changes, you can take the following actions to clear away the merge panel and signal that the merge is finished:

  • Click Keep proposed changes to accept all proposals that you haven't explicitly rejected.
  • Click Reject proposed changes to clear away every proposed change. This action won't affect any edits you've made since importing the proposal.

Option 2: Accept or reject all changes at once

  • Click Keep proposed changes to accept all proposed changes.
  • Click Reject proposed changes to reject all proposed changes.
