Alerts are a great way to stay on top of your advertising performance by telling AdStage to notify you when something does or does not happen so that you can go in and make a change before it's too late (i.e. no clicks yesterday). Rules take this optimization one step further by making the change for you. In this article, we'll cover how to cut out the busywork from your day and convert your favorite Alerts into Rules. 

How does it work?

Converting Alerts into Rules is one of the simplest ways to add more automation to your tried-and-true advertising strategy (as well as a little more free time to your day). Do you get Alerts emails every week that require you to take the same action each time? Do you find yourself constantly logging back into AdStage to increase or decrease your keyword bids? If this sounds familiar, hop on over to Automate and follow the steps below.

How do I convert an Alert into a Rule?

Step 1: Log in to AdStage and go to Automate

Step 2: Click on Alerts

Step 3: Use the selector boxes on the left-hand side to choose the alert you'd like to convert

Step 4: Click "Convert to Rule" in the toolbar that appears above your list of alerts

Step 5: Select the action you'd like the Rule to take ( pause/enable, increase/decrease bid or budget)

Step 6: Select your email preference and click Launch
