Google AdWords Adds An Undo Feature

Google AdWords UndoGoogle announced on Google+ that they added an undo button in the change history screen within the AdWords advertising console.

The undo feature lets you revert back changes you made with the click of a single button.

The change history screen only shows you the changes over the past 30 days, so you can't undo past 30-days, which I guess should be fine for most active campaigns.

When you click View Change History in your Campaigns tab, you’ll see undo buttons with arrows that appear next to your list of changes. Find the row with the set of changes you want to undo and click the arrow button. You’ll be shown a verification that the change can be undone. When you are sure you want to proceed, click the Undo changes button.

You’ll be able to undo most, but not all change types. If the undo option is not available, you will not see an arrow button next to the listed change. Keep in mind that undoing changes will not undo the effects those changes had on your account.

I applaud that they keep trying to make the campaign management page better... ...but the editor is still much easier for managing lots and lots of campaigns/groups/keywords.

This is an awesome feature! There are ton of times internally or other companies who change things in the account and it's annoying to back track to fix something. Well done Google!
