Welcome to the redesigned Microsoft Advertising

Welcome to the redesigned Microsoft Advertising

We're rolling out a series of changes to modernize the look, feel, and functionality of Microsoft Advertising. Our key goal is to help you more easily and intuitively manage ads on one of the world's leading advertising platforms.

Over time, we will unveil this redesign to all corners of Microsoft Advertising. So, read below to see what's new and what you can expect.

What's been redesigned with Microsoft Advertising?

If you don't see all of these new or updated features right away, don't worry—they're coming!

New color schemes and less clutter
What's different?

Selective use of color and more space in a data-intensive application.

What's in it for you?

  • The layout is less cramped because we've added more spacing around page elements, tables, graphs, and forms. This added space helps reduce eye fatigue and information overload.
  • The color palette is not only pleasing to look at, it's also fully accessible. Colors are selectively used to draw your attention to things that matter, such as alerts and errors.

Navigation
What's different?

A global menu bar that appears on the top of every page. A main menu on the far left that allows quick-and-easy access to campaigns. Page menus that display options that are specific to the page you're viewing.

What's in it for you?

You won't lose sight of where you are in Microsoft Advertising. If you help finding something, you can search for what you need directly from the global menu.

Hierarchies
What's different?

Ability to create account hierarchies. Greater visibility and control into parent and child accounts, and the assets you can share.

What's in it for you?

  • Geared towards corporations, hierarchies allow you to an arrange Microsoft Advertising to match the scale and complexity of your company by using accounts and manager accounts.
  • You can share payment methods, user access, Universal Event Tracking (UET) tags, and remarketing lists across your network of accounts.

Managing accounts. Managing billing.
What's different?

Accounts & Billing is no more. You can manage your account setup via Accounts, and pay for ad spend in Billing & payments.

What's in it for you?

This division allows you to focus on billing related tasks in one contained area. The separate Accounts section has added functionality to make managing multiple accounts easier. Accounts contains the following pages: Accounts summary, Bulk operations, Shared library, and Saved account reports.

Tools
What's different?

Tools is now home to Shared library, Conversion tracking, Account access, and Billing & payments.

What's in it for you?

These sections are useful, but not everyone needs to use them daily. They're tucked away in a convenient spot so that you can focus on managing campaigns, performance, and spend.
