Account Snapshot instead of Campaign Summary?

Just noticed that when I open my account the account snapshot page now shows by default instead of the campaign summary. Is there any way to change this back?

There should be a link there somewhere - I changed all mine.

Yea, it's down at the bottom towards the left. Whatever you have it set it, there's a link to set it the other way.

It should be in the lower left corner of the "Account Snapshot" page.

The link looks like:

Starting page is Account Snapshot (this page). Make Campaign Summary my starting page.

The link may only be available when logging in to the actual account, but not when logging in through a My Client Center account.

Google should just reset the default to campaign summary IMHO.

Yes, google should reset the default to Campaign Summary. This page is not useful at all. I want to see numbers as they relate to my individual campaigns. I don't care about overall statistics. This page is for pointed haired executives and let's face it, we don't give them the login information anyway.

'kay, I did some experimenting, and I think I figured it out. If you have an MCC account, you don't see that link. If you have an MCC account, and even ONE of your accounts is set to Account Snapshot instead of Campaign Summary, then when you log into your MCC, it's set to Account Snapshot. As soon as I set the one account back to Campaign Summary, then logged out of my MCC and back in, I got the Campaign Summary.

I think maybe this is a bug and not a feature.

The MCC should have its own link, and the view should be independent of what the individual accounts are set to.

I'll add this to the Features We Would Like item.

Yes, I agree, I want to easily set all of my accounts back to Campaign Summary. Thought I'd vote on this as well!

Campaign Summary Please. This other is not useful and just ads more clicks to the process.

Sorry - it ended up being especially busy this week for me, and I've not had a lot of posting time. I did pass all this feedback along (including a link to the thread so that the right folks could follow it).

The Account Snapshot page is a relatively new feature - and the team is now looking into MCC/Snapshot question based on your feedback.

More when I know more. ;)

I have a MCC and i've contacted Adwords support about this, but they told me they will be working on it.
Of course i vote for Campaign Summary as Acc. Snapshot is a click waste of time.
Hope Adwords could fix this soon.

Never lose faith in the mighty Goog. The issue seems like it's now been fixed. I'm back to campaign summary by default as of this morning.

Thanks AWA!
