Multiple ad formats in a campaign
You can now add multiple ad formats to your campaign or ad group. When you’re creating a campaign, click "Ads" in the left hand navigation then click the toggle icon to choose which formats you want to add to your ad group. Keep in mind: if you select multiple ad formats, your bid floor will respect the bid floor of the highest cost format.

Analytics: Filter by formats 
You’ll now be able to filter by Pin format and view data specific to standard, video, story or shop the look Pins. The new filter option is located in the left-hand navigation below ‘Source’. Top line metrics, line graphs and top Pins will respond to this filter once selected. 

Updates to campaign creation

Video campaigns created prior to August 6, 2019 bid on cost per impression and can now be found under the brand awareness objective in your reporting dashboard.

Pre-filled fields in Ads Manager

To save you time when you’re creating a campaign, ad group or Promoted Pin in Ads Manager, you’ll receive automated suggestions for names, start times and bids. Campaign, ad group and Promoted Pin name suggestions are based on your campaign objective and creation time. Start time is also based on creation time, and ad group bid suggestions use strong bids. All pre-filled fields are modifiable.

Duplication improvements

We’ve added additional flexibility to duplication. Now when you duplicate a campaign, you can update the copied campaign to use a different campaign objective. When you duplicate an ad group or Promoted Pin, the ad group or Promoted Pin copy can be moved into a new campaign with a different campaign objective.
