Hello! I tried to use your script but there is one bug and I can't fix it. There is outdated function in Line 53 withDestinationUrl https://developers.google.com/adwords/scripts/docs/sunsets?hl
I tried to change this function to withFinalUrl(finalUrl) also changed this one finalUrl = ad.urls.getFinalUrl() in line 35. But adwords show me this error "TypeError: Cannot find function getFinalUrl in object function () {...}. (line 31)"
Can you help me?
