Thanks AWA, you're doing a great job as always! (Did I mention some of my annoyances on the other whislist are solved? Thanks!)

I'm still struggling with the "jump to client" list. Could that be a simple (alphabetical?) list with all clients and sub clients in it, rather than some double and some not listed?

btw the dutch translation of passed seems to be "sent in" :(

It's been 10 days and counting since I passed, and it has yet to show up on my account.

cline, I've received word that you should be good-to-go now. :) Very sorry for the delay.

Thanks again for being such an early-adopter!

Yes, thanks AWA, it's showing up in my account.

Also, the receipt issue has been solved. One can get a receipt by logging in on the testing site. It's kind of a clunky inobvious way to do it, but at least there's a way.

I very much like the idea of being able to click on the logo to validate it. Unfortunately, our industry is full of charlatans. Anybody can copy that logo, and surely somebody will.

While it's not without its flaws, I do want to say that Google Advertising Professionals is a step in the right direction. PPC has gotten so complicated and competitive that it's really no longer self serve for most people.

woke up this morning to a rather large brown box with a USA postmark (I live in the UK)

I hadn't ordered anything so was a bit suspicious to say the least.

Upon opening I find a google goody pack, bag, tshirt, pens, mousemat etc. :)

and then on the invoice it said :

"Congratulations! You were our first customer to take the GAP Training test and you passed!"

which was nice :)

Although still no invite to the google uk xmas party even though I spend more than a few grand a month with them personally not to mention professionally lol

Now that's cute Shane! Congrats (did you beat eWhisper and Shak? LOL!)

"Congratulations! You were our first customer to take the GAP Training test and you passed!"

That is so cool. :)

And I add my congratulations too, Shane21!

I am sorry if I am asking the same question again but I could not find the asnwer.

I have an account that I would like someone to manage but I am affraid someone might change tha password to it and I will loose control over it, which I may not allow to happen.

I manage this account through one AdWords Proffessional one. Would it be possible to create a new AdWords login that will also be moved AdWords Proffesional login, through which I will add this bespoken account to be managed. This account in that case could be managed through 3 accounts. The account itself and 2 AdWords Proffessional login. Would it work?

I have sent the same question before to AdWords before implementation of AdWords Proffessional, and they said it is not possible to change the password through any request form. Maybe someone has any expierience with that?

An account can not be linked to from two different MCC accounts.

You have two options.

1. If the account is in a MCC, then that entire MCC can be umbrelled under another MCC account. However, there are still bugs with the new professional system and linking MCC account together.

2. If you give someone just your login email, they will input that email address into their MCC account and ask for permission to access this account. YOU then log into your actual account and approve the MCC to have access to that account. You will have to delink your account from any other MCC accounts before this can be done.

The account is not an MCC account. Is there a way to open an account that will be an MCC account but will not have any accounts running assigned just to the same e-mail as MCC account.

I have available one MCC account and one regular account that I want someone to manage.

What regurally happens if you manage your account and someone changed your password? Are there any ways to recover it? What happens if they also changed the login name but you are still the payee for that account?

If you want to give your MCC and a separate account
to a "company" and highly stress,, a reputable company

if you did run into a problem down the road such as
the person changing your password, make sure first you
have an signed agreement in place with the company who
will be handling your accounts and if they changed
your password on your all you would have to do is
phone you google rep and fax the agreement to them
and i am sure the rep's would change it in a millisecond.

just make sure its a reputable company and you should
never have a problem,, but to back yourself up,, have
a signed agreement to that affect.
