Edit proposed changes

When you import a file in AdWords Editor, you can edit the proposed changes as shown below:

Type of proposed change Is the proposal editable? Result of editing
Edit existing item yes Your change is applied, and the proposed change is cleared.
Edit removed or moved item yes Your change is applied, and the item is returned to its previous location.
New item yes Your change is applied, and the new item is accepted.
Move or removal no*  

*It isn't possible to edit an item that another user proposed removing or moving, but you can reject the proposal to remove it by selecting the row and clicking Reject selected proposals. You can then edit the item.

Here are a few scenarios that illustrate the editing process:

Scenario 1: John is reviewing Anne's proposal. Anne proposed a new ad group with a maximum cost-per-click (CPC) bid of US$0.50. John changes the bid to $0.60, so the new ad group is accepted, with a bid of US$0.60.

Scenario 2: Anne is reviewing Robert's proposal. Robert proposed raising the maximum CPC bid of the keyword "red hats" to US$0.50. However, in the time since Robert received the exported account, the keyword "red hats" has been removed. When Anne raises the bid to US$0.60, the keyword is restored and the bid is set at US$0.60.

Scenario 3: Robert is reviewing Joanna's proposal. Joanna proposed raising the maximum CPC bid and changing the final URL for the keyword "dating service." As in Scenario 2, this keyword has been removed. When Robert raises her proposed bid to US$0.30, the keyword is restored and the bid is set to $0.30. The final URL will remain as a proposed change until it's rejected, accepted, or manually edited.
