Release notes for Adobe Advertising Cloud.

Last updated: April 11, 2022

Feature Description
Campaigns

Advertising Insights
(April 11; Google Ads accounts) Advertising Cloud Search has transitioned all API calls from the legacy Google AdWords API to the latest Google Ads API. Moving to the new Google Ads API will ensure continuity with existing capabilities and enable access to Google’s latest Ads features.

Some features have not yet been updated to the new API and are temporarily unavailable:
  • Location extensions:
      Location extensions aren’t visible in the Extensions view.
    • You can’t create an extension.
    • Filters on locations don’t work.
  • Advertising Insights: The Impression Share Lost and Query Cross Matching Beta analyses aren’t available.
We anticipate restoration of location extension capabilities by the end of April. Once we determine when the affected Advertising Insights modules can also be restored, we’ll send an update with the estimated date.
Portfolios (March 12 release) By default, hybrid optimization is available at the campaign level. You can now optionally enable hybrid optimization at the ad group level, for which the optimization capability sets Google CPA or ROAS targets at the ad group level for more precise control over performance.
With any portfolio, you must allow for a learning period before you launch the portfolio to ensure that it has sufficient model coverage. Similarly, if you change a hybrid portfolio from campaign-level to ad group-level optimization, then set the portfolio to the active state for about two weeks. This ensures that the optimization capability has time to learn about the included ad groups and generate targets.
To support ad group-level optimization, custom simulations can now include results by ad group. Run a custom simulation with ad group-level results before you launch a hybrid portfolio with ad group-level optimization.
Portfolios
Campaigns
(Match 12 release; Beta feature for Microsoft® Advertising campaigns) - You can now configure search campaigns to use the Maximize Conversions bidding strategy, and optionally set a maximum cost per click.
If you are already participating in the hybrid optimization beta for other auto-bidding strategies, you automatically have access to the Maximize Conversions strategy, and you can include campaigns with the Maximize Conversions strategy in hybrid portfolios. To use this strategy in a hybrid portfolio, you must enable uploading of Advertising Cloud Search objectives to Microsoft® Ads. If you aren’t already participating in the beta and want to join, contact your Adobe account manager.
Campaign Audiences

Campaign Bulksheets
(March 12 release; Microsoft® Advertising campaigns) - You can now use any of your Microsoft® Advertising audiences except for in-market audiences as either campaign-level targets or adgroup-level targets. Previously, you could use them only as adgroup-level targets.
Campaign Audiences (March 12 release; Beta feature for Microsoft® Advertising accounts that are eligible for Customer Match) You can now create and manage customer match audiences by uploading CSV files with email addresses. The data must be hashed using the SHA-256 algorithm.
