You can import any currently active Facebook campaigns into Hootsuite Ads. If you have an Instagram account connected to your Facebook ad account, promoted Instagram post campaigns will also import into Hootsuite Ads.
To import Facebook campaigns
- Click Settings on the main navigation bar.
- Click the Facebook ad accounts tab.
- Toggle the Import active campaigns switch to Yes on each ad account you want to import campaigns for.
The import can take up to 1 hour before all the campaigns are imported and analytics are correctly synced.
Note that importing only occurs once, and if further edits to the campaign are made in Facebook (like creating a new ad) after import, those changes won’t be reflected in Hootsuite Ads.
Certain campaigns cannot be imported at this time:
- Campaigns that have completed adsets. The campaign is no longer technically running.
- Campaigns that have ads with now invalid data (deleted pictures, deleted tracking pixels).
- Campaigns that include Shutterstock photos.
- Campaigns that use a mix of ad creatives (normal and carousel).
