I wanted to use Automated Rules from long time but was hesitating due to it's adverse effect or any mishap happen to my campaigns. Lately, I was told by my seniors to use only Rs. 1000 cost for a particular campaign & not exceeding it. I know I won't be able to monitor the campign 24/7 & it was on the verge of going beyond 1000 so I left with no choice but to use Automated Rules. And this what I did

Apply to -> X campaign

Automatic Action -> Pause Ad groups

Requirements -> Cost > Rs1000

Frequency -> Daily using previous data

Results > Everytime this rule runs

After two days when I check the campaign the cost was beyond Rs1000 & when I saw the campaigns no adroups were paused. How could it happen? Is something wrong the above rule?

Let me know please.
