Change campaign status

This article refers to the legacy version of the Ad Exchange interface.*

Beginning early 2016, the legacy interface will be deprecated and all non-RTB campaigns created in this platform will be turned off. If you're already using the new interface, you can find most of the new processes in the following:

Pretargeting: create and define pretargeting configurations
Hosted bidding: build and maintain campaigns
Query Tool: create queries and run reports

* If you are not already using the new interface, contact your account team.

Campaign status is shown on the All online campaigns page: campaigns are either enabled (shown as a green circle), paused, or deleted (shown as a red X).

You can delete the campaigns you are not running, which is useful if you run up against your campaign limit. When you do so, the campaigns no longer count against that campaign limit (currently 2500).

To change the status of a campaign:

  1. Click the Campaigns tab.
  2. On the All online campaigns page, click the status for the campaign and select the desired status.
  3. If you selected Deleted, click OK to proceed. The campaign's status is updated.

Notes about deleting campaigns:

  • Selecting Deleted does not actually delete the campaign; it hides it in the UI. You can view deleted campaigns by selecting All in the Show options.
  • When you delete a campaign, reporting data will be saved.
  • Campaigns can be undeleted by clicking the status and selecting Enabled or Paused.
