Duplicate Rules using Rules Template (creating a rules template)
Users can now re-use existing campaign rules as templates for creating PGN, automating campaigns and implementing bulk action.
This is a neat feature as it is another shortcut. You need not go over each and every required metric to implement the same rules in your other campaigns.
The feature Rule Template treats your 7 rules or thresholds as a set or a bunch, and not as individual rules. When a rules template is named in the Create Rule[s] Template modal, it means this particular set of thresholds are the ones you want to copy-paste and implement in another PGN or campaign.
With a rules template you access a set of rules used previously in other campaigns or PGNs, and make them available for copying and implementation to other campaigns or PGNs.
As a rule of thumb, users often re-use campaign rules that worked best, or were they found success. Thus, before using this feature, you need to first identify which campaigns/PGNs have been successful.
Aside from the Rule [Template] Name, the 7 thresholds or Rules covered in Rule Template are:
Target Max ACoS (%)
Min. Action Clicks
Max. Keyword Spends ($)
Change Rate (%)
Max. Bid ($)
Min. Bid ($)
When naming your rules templates, be mindful to have a file-naming convention that is intuitive and systematic. When your rules templates are systematic, it becomes easier for you to access and use them for PGN creation or automating campaigns. Example: Rules [product name] [SKU]

The Create Rule[s] Template modal appears.
If you want to refresh your memory on how to define these 7 rules, see Compute for Rules using Rules Wizard. Oryou can click the tooltips at the right end of the data field for their definitions to popup.

Your rules template is now ready to be applied to your specific campaigns/PGNs when you are implementing:
