AdWords Editor - account name and password hassles

 2:54 am on Jan 10, 2008 (gmt 0)

2 quick questions regarding AdWords Editor:

1. I added a new account to AdWords Editor today and it shows the account by the company name for that site, rather than by the login email as it normally does. I'm not even sure where they got this info from, as the company name isn't currently listed in the account. Obviously it was at some point - maybe attached to a credit card or something. In any event, does anyone know if there is a way to change or control the name that Editor displays for an account?

2. Do I absolutely have to re-enter the account password for each and every account every time I use AdWords editor? I don't see anything in the options to save passwords, but this is a real PITA and I am hoping there is some way around this?

1. Account name comes from MCC (My Client Center). Somebody was managing that account through MMC in the past and they still may have access to it.
2. Not that I know. Security measure. It's like having a fire extinguisher in a trunk of your car. You hate it as it is always on your way, but once you had to use it, you celebrate it and put it on a wall of your living room, after. ;)

Hmm, it's a brand new account. Definitely no MCC affiliation ... but thanks for the reply.

Just created a brand new account, outside from MCC. When I pulled it into MCC, company name showed up. Then, I renamed it. I guess editor does the same, it applies company name from account settings. Something new...

Previous version of the AWE had a "save password" checkbox, but it was always greyed out so we couldn't use it. With 5.0, it's gone. Guess they decided not to enable it permanently.
