How to Install Scripts in Google Ads?

Downloading the Script

If you already finished setting up the script in the account where you are going to run it, you need to download it. 

You have the option to download the script to run it in a single account, or you can run it in several accounts at MCC level. For the second option, you can follow the steps detailed here

We recommend you download the code as a txt. file, as you might lose information (characters) if you download it as an Excel file. Save it for later because you'll need to paste the code into your Google Ads account.

Setting up the Script in Google Ads

You need to sign into your Google Ads account and go to the account where you want to run the script. From the Tools dropdown, click Bulk Actions and then choose Scripts

After you click the "+ Script" button, set the name in the field on the top. In the editor box, delete all the characters and paste the code from the script file you downloaded previously. 

If you're not ready to run your script yet, click "Save" on the options below, or click the icon to the right of "Preview" to see a preview of the results of running your script for 30-seconds. You'll be prompted to grant access to run or preview the script.

Schedule the Script

To schedule the script to run automatically, you'll need to set the frequency in your Google Ads account.

For scripts that need to evaluate the account's performance (like Anomaly Report or Reach Target Budget), you need to schedule the script to run at least every hour on Google Ads.

Script File

If the script creates a file, it will go directly to the Google Drive of the accounts added to the settings in the script. You'll also find a direct link to the script file under the "Logs" tab in Enhanced Script page.
