About email notifications for your manager account

You'll receive email notifications when there’s critical information you should see about your manager account. But you can also choose to receive other types of notifications by email.

This article shows you how to manage the email notifications you receive for your manager account as well as for your managed accounts. Keep in mind that each user on a manager account can set their own notification preferences.

Email notifications for manager accounts

You can opt in to email notifications when you create your manager account, but you can change your preferences at any time. These are the types of emails you can choose to receive:

  • Newsletters
  • Google market research
  • Customized help and performance suggestions
  • Reports
  • Special offers

Email notifications for managed accounts

These are the types of emails you can choose to receive about your managed accounts:

  • Disapproved ads and policy alerts
  • Campaign maintenance
  • Customized help and performance suggestions
  • Newsletters

For the first two, “Disapproved ads and policy alerts” and “Campaign maintenance,” you can choose to receive, all, only critical, or no emails. However, note that if the managed account has no other users receiving critical email notifications for the account, you’ll automatically receive these critical emails on behalf of the managed account.

For the last two, “Customized help and performance suggestions” and “Newsletters,” you can choose to receive either all or no emails.
