How to get Google ads permissions for Madgicx

To view data and launch Google Ads via Madgicx, you need “Standard” or “Admin” permissions to access the Google account.

Permissions needed to grant yourself access

The "Edit users, roles, and teams" user role permission is required to add or edit users. The "Ad Exchange" permission is required to add and edit users with Ad Exchange permissions.

If you don’t have these permissions, then you need to ask the relevant admin on your team to grant you the necessary permission.

How get the permissions if you’re not the admin

If you’re not the admin of the Google Ad account you want to connect to Madgicx, you’ll need to get your team member who is the admin to:

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager
  2. Navigate to Tools and settings in the top-right bar and then select “Access and security”
  1. Click the “+”
  1. Enter the user's email address and select a user role (either Standard or Admin)
  1. Click “Send invitation”

Here’s a handy message you can send to the admin of the account:

Hey, I need permission to manage our Google Ads account. Could you spare a few minutes to help me out? (it’s quick and painless, promise 😉)

  1. Go to Google Ad Manager (you may need to re-enter your password)
  2. Head to “Tools and settings” in the top-right bar 
  3. Click on “Access and security” that appears below
  4. Click on the “+” button
  5. Enter my email address
  6. Select my role as “Standard”
  7. Click “Send invitation”

That’s it! Appreciate it if you could get this done ASAP 🙏 so I can start optimizing and maximizing our potential through Google Ads 💪

When you have the permissions, head to Madgicx’s Settings and scroll down to the “Google Ad Accounts” section at the bottom of the page.

Click on the “Add Google Account” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the page.

In the window that appears, select your ad account.

Follow the steps, and your Google Ads account will be connected and appear in the Google Ad Accounts section.

That’s it! 🎉
