adCenter retired the Disapproved Ads and Keywords Tool (DAKT), as advertisers now have the "ability to easily find and take action on their Disapproved ads and keywords directly within adCenter's Campaign tab," informs Microsoft advertising.

What was DAKT?

"The Disapproved Ads and Keywords Tool was the tool that advertisers used before adCenter more conveniently surfaced Disapproved ads and keywords in the Campaign UI. It was located on the Tools page (in the upper-right corner of the window). To view the reason for disapproval, advertisers clicked the arrow in the Status column. To go to the page that contained a disapproved ad or keyword, advertisers clicked the Item column," Microsoft explained.

Here's how to find your Disapproved ads and keywords:

  1. Click on the Campaigns tab in the adCenter UI
  2. Select the Ads or Keywords sub-tab clicking the Delivery column to filter by Disapproved

    NOTE: you'll also receive an email informing you of any disapprovals.

Beginning in mid-March 2012, subscribers to TechNet Subscriptions (excluding TechNet Standard which are entitled to 2 keys per product) may access a maximum allocation of three (3) product keys for Microsoft Office and Windows Client products in connection with their subscription. The allotted keys may only be used for software evaluation purposes. Once the maximum keys have been activated, no more keys will be made available. Additional product keys may be acquired through the purchase of an additional subscription.
