Google Adds Granular Access To AdWords

Ever want to share access to your Google AdWords account, but at the same time, not give too much access? Well, Google has just added three levels of account access, giving you the ability to specify just how much access you want to give people to your account.

If you login to your AdWords account a message should read:

New! You can now assign three new access levels -- administrative, standard, and reports -- to other users in the account.
This new feature increases security by allowing only administrative access users to grant, modify, or remove account access of other users. Also, this feature maintains privacy by ensuring recipients get email communications appropriate to the user's access level. If you are the primary administrator of this account, please take time now to set up access levels for all users in this account, as all users will have administrative access by default.

How do you set up such access? That is explained over here.

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account and click the My Account tab.
  2. Click the Change role link next to the selected user.
  3. Select the radio button next to the access level you want to assign. As an optional step, click on the link Decide which account emails you want this user to receive to set the notification email preferences for this user. You or the user can change these preferences at any time.
  4. Click Save changes to finish. The user will soon receive an email that says you've changed his or her access level.

PPCBlogger confirms this feature is also live and available in the UK.

Most adwords user use it for personal or one man operation. What benefit would you get from having other users?
