To get started with the Google Ads connector, just add an account, then make your queries! On the Analytics Edge ribbon bar, click the Google Ads button and select the Accounts menu item.
Add An Account
Click the Add Account button. You will step through a Google Ads login sequence to authorize Analytics Edge to access your account *.
* A note about security: an account access token is encrypted and stored in a file on your computer using a reference name that you enter. Your workbook queries use the reference name, and during refresh, the connector looks up your access token and sends it direct to Google’s API server with your queries. Your access tokens are not stored in your workbooks, so you can freely share the workbooks.
When completed, close the browser window and look for the Account Login wizard. To complete the login sequence, accept or change the reference name in the Account Login wizard. The reference name does not need to be an email address – you can give it any name (e.g. “My Account”).
Make A Query
On the Analytics Edge ribbon bar, click the Google Ads button and select the Ads Reports menu item. A selection of typical reports can be easily created by selecting from the list. Step through the tabs to modify the Fields, Dates, Filters or Sorting options. Click Finish when you are ready to make the query.
