We are planning to update sections of the interface one by one to ensure that they cause as little inconvenience for you as possible. The first section we are changing is the window for creating and editing Text & Image ads and Smart banners.
You can already see the updated interface — clicking on the Add ad β, Edit group β or Edit ads β buttons in the old interface will open the new window:
Or select several ads or ad groups at once (up to 50 of them at once) and click the Action button, and then Edit ads β or Edit ad groups β:
You can edit up to 50 ads or ad groups simultaneously in the new window.
Here you can see how the new editing window looks for Text & Image ads (on the left) and Smart banners (on the right):
What is so great about the updated editing window?
Speed. Working with ads and ad groups in the new window saves time, and makes it easier to optimize your settings in Yandex.Direct.
Tips. Each point features short texts explaining how each feature can help increase your ad's CTR or lead to additional growth of your audience.
Mass edits. This button allows you to make bulk changes to elements in Text & Image ads. You can, for example, change part of the ad text, a link (or part of it) or your creatives with just one click.
When will the redesign take place?
The final transition will take place over the course of several weeks, after which only one option will remain in the interface. During the transition period, it's important for us to make sure that working in the new window is both comfortable and functional.

Please watch for more news in the upcoming months — we will continue keeping you informed about all updates to the old interface and transitions to the new.
