Viewing hierarchy for your manager account

You can use your manager account's hierarchy view to easily check which accounts are directly linked to your manager account, and which are indirectly linked via sub-managers.

This article shows you how to use the hierarchy view in your manager account. If you’d like more background about manager account structure, read About linking Google Ads accounts to your manager account.

Using list view

By default, the table in the Sub-account settings page of your manager account will be in list view. In list view, you can view accounts that are directly linked to your manager account, as well as those that are indirectly linked, via your sub-managers.

You can use the “Level” filter at the top of the table to have the table show just directly linked accounts, or have it show all accounts (both directly and indirectly linked accounts). If you’re viewing all accounts, you can tell which accounts are indirectly linked by looking at the “Direct manager” column.

Using hierarchy view

While this list view of all accounts can be helpful, if you need to view your account hierarchy and quickly see which accounts are indirectly linked, and via which sub-managers, you can always switch to a hierarchy view. The hierarchy view will show exactly how all your accounts are linked to your manager account. You’ll be able to easily tell which accounts are directly linked, and which are indirectly linked via sub-managers.
