In an effort to make advertising easier for advertisers, Facebook is rolling out a new redesigned Ads Manager, including a handful of shiny new features!
Keep in mind that the old Ads Manager will be available until May 1st, but we recommend using the redesigned UI as much as possible to get acclimated to the new interface, and to take advantage of the new features.
New Features to Ads Manager
New Navigation Sidebar
While this is similar to the sidebar pane available when you edit a campaign, this pane is permanently fixed on the left side of Ads Manager and allows you to select campaign, ad set, and ad without the loading time.
View Nested & Collapsible Campaign, Ad Set, and Ad Results
You’re now able to open and close your campaigns or ad set to see the hierarchy of items beneath without switching your view (i.e. select campaign to see all ad sets, select ad set to see all ads).
This means you can also open and view multiple campaigns at once!
Permanent Combined Search & Filter Bar at the Top of Ads Manager
Need to find a particular campaign or ad name? Facebook has made it all the more easy with a permanent search bar at the top.
New Keyboard Shortcuts
For the mouse-averse or for marketers who are working with large campaign builds, Facebook has introduced keyboard shortcuts including the ability to cut and paste campaigns, ad sets, and ads in the interface.
