If the selected actions can't be applied to some campaigns, you will see a warning.

“Most important campaigns” filter

You can create a separate list for the campaigns that you work with most often. To do this, select the campaigns on the My campaigns page and click Actions → Add to most important. To view the list of the most important campaigns, open the filter by campaign status and choose Most important only.

The list of most important campaigns is shown for each login, so you can use it to visually separate one representative's campaigns from another.
