Is anyone else amazed that Google switched from the old to the new interface in just one min - especially after the days of problems Overture had doing the same thing last week?
Gotta love Google!

Wow, I was just checking it out. I've been admiring the new interface for awhile now.

Guess I better get used to it.

The new interface saves me a lot of time and it is much less confusing. I switched to it as soon as the test was available to the public.

Yes it works perfect- have got used to it now. You can rename the ad groups, search for keywords and reports are cool!

Working for me in Chicago, IL, USA

I noticed that they added undelete to adgroups. Or was this always there?

Very happy with the changes.

Unlimited negative adwords as far as I can tell...

Is there an upper limit that anyone has run into?

Sporadic problems logging in, but they seem to clear up on a second or third attempt.

Go Google!

I like the changes but it seems to be kicking me out a whole lot more. It would do that on the old but in the past day or so it has been doing almost every 5 min.

Im having major problems with system resources shrinking to 0% when I view all my adgroups.

It never did this on the old adwords and I think its to do with all the fields / forms that are shown at once causing IE to freak out on this new system.

Anyone else with a large 40+ adgroups 2000+ keywords experiencing similar problems?

Quoth the Kila M:
"Anyone else with a large 40+ adgroups 2000+ keywords experiencing similar problems?"

I think anyone with that many adgroups and keywords should have their very own red phone with free on-demand support direct from Google. :P

We have hundreds of adgroupds and thousands of keywords and I am not having any problems with the system. Of course, I am stilling logging in at [adwordstest.google.com...] That may make a difference for you but I have no idea.

It could be that I am dumb or blind, but somehow I can't figure out how to rename my Ad Groups. They are all named Ad Group #1 etc...

Anti:

Select the checkmarks next to the adgroups you want to rename, and then click the rename button on the top of the table. THAT should do it. :)

I can't seem to get a report that gives as much detail as the old interface report. For example, the keyword report seems to only show 2 options for status, active or paused. Even disabled keywords show up as active.
