Shape allows you to make several different types of bulk changes across multiple levels of the platform.
You can make bulk changes at the client, budget, campaign, ad group/ad set, ads, and keyword level.
Below, we'll outline how to make bulk changes and the changes you can make across multiple campaigns at each level.
NOTE: SHAPE RELEASED A FEATURE TO MAKE BULK UPDATES TO BUDGET AMOUNTS. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO MAKE BULK CHANGES FOR BUDGET AMOUNTS, VIEW THIS ARTICLE.
