Synchronize campaign data between Microsoft Advertising and Microsoft Advertising Editor

To ensure that you're always working with the latest data, begin each work session by getting changes from Microsoft Advertising to Microsoft Advertising Editor.

With Microsoft Advertising Editor, you're working on campaign data copied from Microsoft Advertising to your computer. Make sure the copy on your computer matches the data in your Microsoft Advertising account by synchronizing Microsoft Advertising Editor with Microsoft Advertising each time you start.

Important

Changing your Sync Settings, getting data from Microsoft Advertising, or using the Full Account command to revert all changes will overwrite the data in Microsoft Advertising Editor. The changes that you have not yet posted to Microsoft Advertising will be lost.
