Schedule a bulk upload

You can schedule bulksheet uploads to take place at a specified frequency and time. Additionally, you can use Google’s sFTP, a Google-hosted sFTP endpoint which detects changes to bulksheets and automatically uploads them to the new Search Ads 360.

Scheduled upload sources

Different sources for your scheduled uploads can be used:

  • The Search Ads 360 UI: The new Search Ads 360 provides a single place to upload, review errors, and check the status. You can upload files in a variety of formats, including XLS, XLSX, CSV, TSV, or provide a link to a Google sheet. This is useful for performing “round tripping” by downloading the current data set, amending it as required, and then uploading the edited bulksheet.
  • HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure): The new Search Ads 360 connects to a secure endpoint to retrieve the bulksheet to be uploaded from your server.
  • sFTP (secure File Transfer Protocol): If you frequently upload bulksheets, you may want to use third-party software (called an FTP client) to upload bulksheets to an sFTP endpoint instead of manually uploading through the Search Ads 360 UI, or let Search Ads 360 connect to your sFTP server to retrieve the bulksheet Available options:
  • Bulksheet within Search Ads 360: Learn more about the bulksheet and how to add and edit keywords using it.

Scheduled upload frequency and time

You can choose the frequency and time for your scheduled uploads.

If you’re managing accounts within different time zones, the upload will run in its owner's timezone (regardless of the account type). The owner can be manager or sub-manager. Learn more about time zone settings across multiple accounts.
  • One time
