A step-by-step guide on using the Google Ads Account Summary Report script:

Step-1 Sign in to your Google Ads account.

Step-2 Click on the "Tools & Settings" 

Step-3 Select Scripts under BULK ACTIONS.

Step-4 Click on the "plus" button to create a new script.

Step-5 Name your script and Copy and paste the spreadsheet-based script.

Step-6 Next, make a copy of the given template spreadsheet. (enter the valid email address to the spreadsheet)

Step-7 Update spreadsheet_url in your script with the URL of the copied spreadsheet.

Step-8 Customize to include the specific metrics you want to track, such as impressions, clicks, cost, conversion rates, etc.

Step-9 Click the "Authorize" button to authorize the script to access your account.

Step-10 Click on the "Save" button.

Step-11  Go back to the "Scripts" section and set the report frequency to be generated (Schedule the script to run Daily, 3 am)

Step-12 Then click on Google Ads Account Summary Report.

Step- 13 Next, run it to generate the report.

Once you've set up the script, it will automatically generate and send the report to your specified email address on your chosen frequency. You can then use this report to gain valuable insights into the performance of your Google Ads campaigns and make data-driven decisions to optimize your advertising efforts.

Extending the report is optional, and it allows you to add metrics beyond those available in the basic template. Here's how to do it:

Step-1 Add a heading for the new metric you want to add to your spreadsheet in the next available column.

Step- 2 Edit the REPORT_FIELDS definition near the top of the script to include the new metric. For example, if you want to add Search Impression Share, you would add the following line to the definition:


    {columnName: 'metrics.cost_micros', displayName: 'Cost'},

    {columnName: 'metrics.average_cpc', displayName: 'Average CPC'},

    {columnName: 'metrics.ctr', displayName: 'CTR'},

    {columnName: 'metrics.impression', displayName: 'Impressions'},

    {columnName: 'metrics.clicks', displayName: 'Clicks'},

    {columnName: 'metrics.search_impression-share', displayName: 'Search Imp. Share'}


*You can choose any value for the displayName parameter, which will be used as the heading for the new metric in the report email.

Step-3 Save the script and run it to generate the report with the new metric included.

To create a chart for the new metric:

  1. Click on one of the existing charts in your spreadsheet.
  2. Under the three dots menu in the top right of the chart, select "Copy Chart."
  3. Right-click and select "Paste" to create a new chart on the sheet.
  4. On the menu for the new chart, select "Edit Chart."
  5. Change the series column reference to the column containing the new data.
  6. Double-click on the chart title and change it to the name of the new metric.

With these steps, you can easily extend the report to include additional metrics and create charts to visualize the data.
