Why the Invalid Spec for Creative with Interactive Components Error Happens

This can happen if you are using carousel ads and trying to use product tags. These are not compatible with carousel ads, so you will need to remove them. The first step to do that is to check each carousel slide. 

How to Fix the Invalid Spec for Creative Error

Once you are in the carousel section you can click on the ‘edit image’ or ‘edit video’ button to access the product tagging options.

Remove Product Tags from Carousel Slides

From here you can look under the Creative Tools and Product Tags will be there. Then you can remove all the tags here.
