I use the new interface, "report issues", and before logging off always switch back to, and use, the old interface. I'm hoping this serves as a vote for the old interface until the new interface brings forward all the functionality of the old interface.
Reporting URL channels, by channel and day, (BOTH feature) If you want to analyze performance on a daily basis, this feature is critical.
Templates. Existing templates are gone?
Almost useless features:
Data by Bid Type (CPM or PPC). Without accurate CPM impression data this information has limited utility other than confirming how poorly CPM pays for certain types of sites.
Pagination of results. Now you must scroll and use the pagination buttons. How about a default ALL setting. I'd far rather just scroll through all the data. I have generated some reports that took the browser "minutes" to render! I can live with that as long as I can still get the data.
Close the graph? Many times I just want to see the data.
Excessive clicks for the same information in the old interface. Granted new functionality may require additional navigation.
I've used "report issue" for all of the above, minor, or major. I really don't want to lose functionality.
(For example I just learned IE7/IE8 dumped the "save offline" feature when I needed it the other day. A disappointment!).

My question to ASA and the AdSense team, even if it only becomes a rhetorical question, what's the downside of keeping both - the current interface for those who want the simplicity & the efficiency that brings them and the new interface for those who want the features available there?
This is the one area that I think the Ad Manager has it over AdSense - you can create everything in a spreadsheet and just upload it. That would be a HUGE time saver.
