Copy or delete an ad campaign
You can make copies of existing campaigns created in Hootsuite Ads, but imported campaigns can’t be copied. Copying is also available at the adset and ad levels.
Copying creates a new campaign with all the same features of the original including target and bidding. Any of the new campaign’s parameters can then be changed before publication.
Note that any social proof collected on the ads (likes, comments and shares) will be copied over, but only if the ad creative (or the post if promoting a Page post) is not edited.
To copy a campaign
- Click Your campaigns on the main navigation bar, click Select a campaign, and then select the campaign from the drop-down menu.
- In your campaign’s Dashboard tab, scroll down to the Campaign Details box just below the graph, and then click Copy Campaign.
- Click Copy.
Tip: To copy a campaign that is pending or a draft, select the campaign from the drop-down menu, and copy the last 7 digits of the URL - this is the campaign ID. Then enter this URL: https://ads.hootsuite.com/campaign/new?copy=******* into your browser with the 7 digits in place of the ******* to generate a copy.
To delete a campaign
Important: This will also delete your campaigns from Facebook! There is no way to restore a deleted campaign.
- Click Your campaigns on the main navigation bar, click Select a campaign, and then select Go to campaigns list from the drop-down menu. Or, go straight to your All Campaigns page.
- Check the box to the left of the campaign(s) you wish to delete, and then
click Delete .
