Customizable Report

Reports icon

The Customizable Report solution is a framework that automatically generates a spreadsheet from a report and emails it to a list of recipients. The default report fetches some Performance Max campaigns, but you can customize it for any valid GAQL query.

How it works

The script runs the report and outputs the results to a spreadsheet, then emails a link to the spreadsheet to the configured recipients. It offers various customization options around which spreadsheet to use, and which sheet within that spreadsheet.


The CONFIG for this script offers various options.

Name of the script to be used in the email subject.
An array of strings of all the email recipients.
URL of the spreadsheet that results are written to. If unspecified or commented out (default), a new spreadsheet is created. If specified, then the first sheet of the spreadsheet will be overwritten with new results. If you want to maintain a historical record, leave this option commented out.
queryFields, queryResource, and queryConditions
These fields let you customize a report query by specifying various components of the query. You can create these programmatically in the CONFIG. For example, it might be useful to specify a query condition that limits the results to the previous day, and then run the script each day.
This lets you specify a completely custom GAQL query. If specified, then the queryFields, queryResource, and queryConditions fields will be ignored, and this query will be used instead.


  • Create a new Google Ads script with the source code below.
  • Set up the CONFIG section for your use case. See the previous section.
    • Make sure you update the emailAddresses, even if you're leaving other values at their defaults.
  • Schedule the script to run at a cadence that makes sense for your use case.

Configuration example

The default CONFIG is set up to run a Performance Max report. You can customize this to run any other type of report by updating the fields within the CONFIG. For example, if you'd just like to get a list of campaigns with some basic metrics from yesterday:

const CONFIG = {
    ... email and spreadsheet config ...

    queryFields: [
    queryResource: 'campaign',
    queryConditions: ' DURING YESTERDAY'
