How to add an Adwords network & associate with an account

You must have an Adwords MCC account in order to create an Adwords network for client reporting.  To set up an Adwords MCC, start at: https://adwords.google.com/home/tools/manager-accounts/

To add your Adwords MCC account as a data source in NinjaCat, start by either clicking “Setup” from the drop-down menu next to your name in the top-right corner,


or by clicking “Add Data Source” from the Account Command Center:


If the network or data source already exists in your “data sources” list shown and you just need to update the password / token, follow these instructions for “Updating the password for your Network/data source”.

Otherwise, start by clicking the “Add Network” button to begin adding a new network:


Click the blue “Connect” button under the icon for Google Adwords:


In the same browser window but in a new tab, log in to your Google Adwords MCC account.

Go back to the tab with NinjaCat, type in a meaningful name for the MCC account you are adding, then click “Add Network”:


You will automatically be redirected to a page where you are asked to grant permission for NinjaCat to access your Adwords network.  Click on the “Allow” button.


How to connect a client account to a data source:

To associate the Adwords data source with the client’s account, Click on the “Accounts” tab and search for the client. Click on the row to open the client's account:


Click on the “Add Data Source” button or on the plus sign above Data Sources to connect your newly added data source to your Account:
