ADD AN ACCOUNT

Enter a Reference Name for the account and click the Add Account button. You will step through a Google AdWords 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 the reference name you entered. 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.

If you have multiple customers in an MCC Account, you can get see them in the Customer ID drop down at the bottom when you select the account in the list.

MAKE A QUERY

In Excel, on the Analytics Edge ribbon bar, click the Google AdWords button and select the Reports menu item. Different groups of reports can be accessed by selecting from the left-side buttons. Select from one of the preset reports, then step through the tabs to select the Fields, Filters, Dates and Sorting for your query. Note that some of the default fields are required in the report, so you may get an error if you remove them. Click Finish when you are ready to make the query.
