OK, I'm always up for improvement, so lets give Google some feed back on how to improve the new UI

  • To be faster!
  • Fit to screen, scrolling left and right constantly is frustrating.
    Scrolling just to find the filter button or logout is just not the Google way!
    Some of these columns can be squeezed up.
  • Is the show and hide deleted items disappeared? Please bring this back.
  • Apparently has time zone issues that need fixing.
  • Personally feel that the default layout to be more like the original as not to be such a shock, ie. Hide the left navigation, sort Campaign list by name.. let users change it to fit them.

    Anyone like to add anymore?

    AdWords says the screen width problem is on monitors with a 1024 resolution and lower, mine is 1280 by 1024 and I see horizontal scroll bars which is awful.

    This is the biggest single issue for me to embrace the new beta. Please AdWords fix this so more people can use it.

    I have to echo Nancy99 statement. Using the new UI on a small screen, or a slow connectin (such as an aircard) is extremely difficult. The inability to resize the screen is difficult.

    I was attempting to work with ad scheduling in the new interface, and the hover pages (such as ad scheduling or adding placements) are quite difficult to work with. In the old interface, I can see most of these pages without an issue.

    In the new UI, working with either of these options is very difficult as now you have a lot more vertical scrolling, and can't see an entire week (for ad scheduling) in one view.

    The scrolling thing is annoying.

    I think the settings tab for campaigns is one of the most marked improvements in the new interface. I really like how you can see all of the Ad Scheduling, for instance, in one column. The old interface was very poor with campaign settings.

    If you have a big monitor, nice internet connection, and a good web browser, I think the new interface is really great. Maybe Google is leaving some people out in the cold? Or maybe it's just working out the kinks in the beta version.

    I'm having weird problems with site exclusions on the automatic placements. When I exclude some sites, it doesnt update the screen correctly, and seem to exclude sites I hadnt ticked.
