Create, edit, and remove call-only ads using a bulksheet

You can use a bulksheet to create and edit call-only ads. Rather than starting with a blank bulksheet, or a bulksheet that contains multiple campaigns, download an editable report/bulksheet that contains call-only ads because it contains the columns required to create or edit call-only ads. After you enter your changes, upload the bulksheet into Search Ads 360.

You can only create a new call-only ad or a new text ad. You can’t convert one ad type into a different ad type.

You can use a bulksheet to correct errors in your call-only ads.
