Last July, we started beta testing a new feature within AdWords called the Account Snapshot page. After months of refinement based on beta tester feedback, the Account Snapshot page is now available to all AdWords advertisers.

As you can see from the screenshot below, this new page provides an easy-to-read account overview in one place. The page also offers something completely new to AdWords – SMS (or mobile phone) alerts about important account events related to billing, disapproved ads, and campaign maintenance. In addition to SMS, you can choose to be alerted online or via e-mail.

(Click the screenshot to view the full-size image.)

You can access this new page whenever you want by clicking the "Account Snapshot" link on the top navigation bar. You can also set it to be the first thing you see when you log in (instead of the Campaign Summary page) by simply clicking the link at the bottom of either your Campaign Summary or Account Snapshot page. If you change your mind, you can always switch back to Campaign Summary by clicking the same link.

To find out more about the Account Snapshot page, check out the AdWords Help Center. You can also find instructions on how to set up account alerts here.
