Generate and manage upgraded inventory campaigns

Pause, activate, and remove templates

When you pause a template,  Search Ads 360 stops applying the template. Items that were originally generated by the template are no longer updated, and no new items are created. The generated items are not paused. If you also want to pause the generated items, change the status of the item (you can use filters to view only the items generated by a specific template).

When you activate a paused template, Search Ads 360 will apply the template the next time it evaluates the inventory plan.

When you remove a template, Search Ads 360 removes all items that the template generated. For example, if you remove a campaign template, Search Ads 360 changes the status for all campaigns the template generated to Removed. The ad group, ad, keyword, and other templates that were in the campaign template are not removed. You can use them in other campaign templates within the inventory plan, or remove them as well.

Note that all changes to the status of a template appear in your change history.

To pause, activate, and remove templates:

  1. Navigate to an advertiser.
    Steps for navigating to an advertiser
    1. Click the navigation bar to display navigation options.

    2. In the "Agency" list, click on the agency that contains the advertiser. You can search for an agency by name or scroll through the list.

    3. In the "Advertiser" list, click on the advertiser.

    4. Click Apply or press the Enter key.

    Search Ads 360 displays the advertiser page, which contains data for all of the advertiser’s engine accounts.

  2. In the left navigation panel, click Templates.
  3. Click the Inventory plans tab and click the name of an inventory plan.
  4. In the reporting table, click the status icon and select ActivePaused, or Removed. Click the green circle
While removed templates and campaigns aren't visible in Search Ads 360 by default, you can view removed templates and campaigns.
