We'll see what happens next :)
Too funny, pavlovapete. I saw an email with this idea in the email queues a short time ago, and included it in this week's Advertiser Feedback Report. Surely it was yours. ;)
Don't hold your breath though.
I don't mean to be discouraging, but this is probably an accurate assessment.
Here's why: There are a great many features we could
add - and each would be useful to some subset of the total number of advertisers. And, the usefulness could be of greater or lesser value in terms of leading to advertiser success. And, then, each one has a cost to develop and implement in terms of engineering time, computing resources, and so on.
Whenever we decide on the next new feature to implement, it has to first prove itself against all other ideas, based primarily on how many advertisers would find it useful (and how useful they would find it) - and then the 'leading' ideas are looked at in terms of the resources required to develop, implement, support, maintain, etc. The 'winners' emerge in this way.
And, to be really straightforward, I have been actively collecting feedback from Advertisers for many years, and I think this may be the first time I have ever heard this request.
So it's not looking too good in the 'how many advertisers will this benefit, and how much will it benefit them'
That said, it is
included in the report - which gets seen by a whole lot of the product folks.
