Don't Limit The Number Of Ads or Keywords Viewable at the Account Level!
When at the account level in the Bing Ads interface, I often want to populate ALL of my keywords or ads but am limited by the error "Your account has more keywords than can be displayed, select a campaign to narrow down the scope."
This limits the analysis options that I can do on an account level from within the interface. I might want to quickly identify my top 10 conversion generating keywords accross all ad groups but in order to do so, I would have to download a report, which is a pain. Being able to populate and sort ALL data from the interface would be super useful.
Let me see ALL AdGroups on one page, instead of limiting me to 20 and making me click through pages. Let me see all my keywords on a page, instead of limiting me to 50 keywords at a time.
In the new web UI, which I saw for the first time on 10/28/2011, I am getting "your account is too big" error messages when I try to view the keywords tab at the campaign level. The exact error message is: "Your account has more keywords than can be displayed, select a campaign first to narrow down the scope".
This is why pagination exists! So what if I have 20K keywords in a campaign. (or 40K if you count match types). Google keyword tab in their web UI deals with this campaign quite well.
Thanks for all of the feedback about this feature suggestion!
We’re actively working on a solution to display more keywords at a time without sacrificing speed and performance of the Bing Ads UI and would like to talk with a few of you about our ideas.
If you’re currently using the new Excel web app inside the Bing Ads UI, and are interested in answering a few usability questions, please send me an email with your name, customer or account name and time zone to email@example.com by 11/21/2013.
"hey bing; I get speed and performance is a thing, but why can't we go to the keyword tab and have unrestricted use of the filter? Sometimes, i'm only looking for a handfull of keywords that aren't converting or KY's that could use a little help; but It takes me EXPONENTIALLY longer to have to sift through each and every campaign and adgroup INDEPENDANTLY. This NEEDs to be fixed"
what that guy said.
Let me tell you how stupid the Bing Ads engineers are. They don't even have enough common-sense to SORT the ad group list after you are forced to select a Campaign first just to see the keywords in your account. This is beyond common-sense. It's like Bing Ads developers are all high school interns that could care less about usability.

not only that, but you can't even create a report for keywords that include "xyz" - it will match on exact only. this is BEYOND absurd.
it's impossible for me to reconcile the fact that adcenter, who tries to compete with AdWords, does give you the ability to: 1.) search across more than a single adgroup; and 2.) apply an "includes text" filter in any way.

I think in general the number of keywords per page is very poor when looking at keywords of a campaign or an ad group.
In Google Adwords I can see up to 500 keywords per page. That would be the minimum I'd like to be able to see.

Hi Susan, that only works when at the account level and trying to filter down (and also requires you to select an adgroup, whilst I'd prefer to see all keywords within a campaign).
If you're already at a campaign level when you try to view keywords your filtering options are "Select an ad group", of which the only drop-down option is "undefined". This also appears to prevent the addition of any filters.
I also get the same error at the campaign level!!! The adCenter interface should be modified to work with OUR accounts, NOT the other way around. If you want to try and keep up with Adwords, your UI MUST be AT LEAST AS GOOD AS THEIRS!!! This is a no-brainer....
This is CRAP! How am I supposed to easily make keyword changes to the whole account such as pausing any keyword over a certain CPA? or above a certain price with 0 conversions? Your interface needs some serious work!!!
Hi Dave, after you select the campaign name from the drop down box in the keywords tab, please select the "apply" button to execute the filter. Your keywords will be displayed once you click apply. Please let us know if this does not resolve the issue for you.
We are working to improve this experience in a future upgrade.

I'm having a few issues with the current implementation: the keywords tab says that I have more keywords than can be displayed and asks me to filter them down by campaign (despite having already selected only those in one campaign). It also will not allow me to apply further filters.
Hopefully the platform update coming out soon fixes this travesty.

Also, the error message seems wrong, because I am at the campaign level...
Also the ability to see negative keywords on one screen instead of having to go through pages 1 of 2, 1 of 3, ect.

I would describe this request another way. You cannot view keyword level data unless you first click on an ad group. I'd like to be able to see all my keywords and be able to search and query on them without first having to drill into ad group level first.
In adCenter, if I have a lot of keywords, I can’t display them all on one page – I can only see 20 at a time. Additionally, I can’t see an ad and its keywords on one page as I can in Adwords. I can see the ad, or I can see the keywords, but I can’t view them together on one screen in AdCenter.
