Feature Description
New Help (October 28 release) The legacy help was replaced with updated pages, which are available from the Help link in the DSP main menu and are also available at all times from https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/advertising-cloud/dsp/home.html
Campaigns (October 28 release) The previous Campaigns Beta views are now the default Campaigns views, for quicker insights, simplified workflows, and customized views.
Private Inventory (October 15 release) All users can now set up and edit deal ID details using a new deal ID form, which is a simplified version of the legacy Smart Ad Serving form. To set up new deal ID details, go to Inventory > Deals, select Create, and then select Deal ID Beta.

Last updated: March 29, 2022, for March 27 release

Feature Description
Search Campaigns
Reports
(Microsoft Ads campaigns) Bidding support is now available for the Microsoft enhanced cost-per-click (eCPC) bid strategy, which is the default bid strategy for Microsoft Advertising campaigns. You can now specify a campaign-level Bid Strategy for your campaigns. Options include Manual CPC and Enhanced CPC. You can use Enhanced CPC with search, existing dynamic search ad, and shopping campaigns.
When you add a campaign with eCPC to an optimized Advertising Cloud portfolio, Advertising Cloud optimizes the base bids and — when the “Auto adjust campaign budget limits” option is enabled — the campaign budget. Microsoft® applies all bid adjustments and may change the Advertising Cloud-generated bids at the time of the user query based on proprietary data and insights.
The Bid Strategy custom column is available in the Campaigns view and in reports.
Search Campaigns
Bulksheets
(Microsoft® Advertising campaigns) For expanded text ads, support is now available for an optional third headline (Ad Title 3) and an optional second description (Description 2). Support is available in the Ads view and in Bulksheets.
Advertising Insights Two new Advertising Insights are available:
  • Delayed Revenue: Measures the conversion lag (the time elapsed between a SEM click and a subsequent conversion) of a portfolio and shows any differences in weighted revenue, ROI, and model accuracy because of the lag.
  • Query Cross Matching: Finds instances of search queries that Google matched to more than one keyword and provides suggestions for where to direct traffic.
