Apply your draft’s changes to the original campaign

With drafts, you can mirror your campaign’s set-up and prepare multiple changes to your campaign at once. If you don’t need to run an experiment to test how the changes affect your campaign performance, you can apply your draft’s changes to the original campaign at any time. This article shows you how to apply your draft’s changes to the campaign. To learn how to create an experiment from your draft, see Set up a campaign experiment.

After you apply a draft to a campaign, the campaign will reflect the changes you made in your draft. Keep in mind that a draft can no longer be edited after it’s applied to a campaign. 

Before you start

If you haven’t yet created a draft, read Set up a campaign draft.
