Using a CSV file to update Auto Optimizer campaigns is an easier way to work, especially when you run several Auto Optimizer campaigns at a time. It allows you to create or update Auto Optimizer campaigns without the need to go through the platform.
You can start by downloading the existing campaigns into a CSV file that includes all the campaigns’ data, adjusting the file as necessary, then uploading it back into the system. Your campaigns will then be automatically updated according to your modifications.
There are two different templates for Pop & Domain redirect and Push campaigns, here you can find guides for each template:
In the CSV file, each row represents one campaign.
When you export Auto Optimizer campaigns, they will have an ID in the ID field. This way the system knows that it’s an existing campaign that you are updating.
