This article will help you understand how to connect and use Instagram Ads on Oviond.

Instagram Ads Permissions

In order to connect your Instagram Ads account to Oviond, make sure your Instagram account is a Professional account and also needs to be linked to the Facebook Page. Follow the instructions in this article to make sure your Instagram account is a Professional account.

If you already have a Professional account, please follow these steps to make sure you are linked to the correct Facebook Page:

  1. Go to Instagram from your phone.

  2. Go to Settings.

  3. Go to Account.

  4. Go to Linked Accounts/Sharing to other apps (depends on the version of Instagram you have installed).

  5. Check that the Facebook Page is connected there.

If you have followed the steps above and your Facebook Page is connected to your Instagram account correctly, the next step is to link it to your Meta Business Suite.

  1. Go into the Business Account that the Ad Account belongs under.

  2. Select Business Settings.

  3. On the menu on the left side, allocate the Accounts section and click on Instagram Accounts.

  4. If the Instagram account does not appear in the list at this stage, you will need to follow the steps on Business Manager to add the Instagram Account to Business Manager. Continue with the next step if the Instagram account is already on the list.

  5. Select the Instagram account and then click on Connected Assets.

  6. If there are no Connected Assets, click on Add Assets and allocate the Facebook Ad Account and then click on Add (The Ad Account for this client needs to be featured under Connected Assets in order for the Instagram Ad Account and Facebook Ad Account to be linked).

The last step is to make sure that you are added as a “People” to the Ad Account. Follow these steps to ensure this is the case:

  1. Go to Business Settings.

  2. Go to People.

  3. Allocate your name on the list.

  4. Check that the Ad Account is listed as an Assigned Asset, if not, click on Add Assets and allocate the Instagram Ad Account to your name.

  7. Select the Instagram Ads account you would like to connect and click Save.

Unable To Find Your Instagram Ad Account On Oviond

If you are still not able to connect your Instagram Ads account to Oviond, one of these issues could be preventing you from doing so:

You are not an admin of the Facebook page: Your Instagram account needs to be set up as a Professional account on Instagram and your personal Facebook profile needs to be set at the admin level. Only admin roles are able to connect via Facebook to an Instagram account on Oviond.

You set your account up on Facebook, not Instagram: If you set your Instagram profile up via Facebook instead of on your mobile device, this may have created some connectivity issues which could be preventing you from connecting your Instagram accounts successfully to Oviond. This can easily be fixed by following these few steps:

  1. Go to Instagram in your Facebook Settings and Disconnect Instagram from the page.

  2. From your mobile, switch your Instagram account back to a Personal account.

  3. Go through the steps of switching your Instagram account into a Professional account and follow the steps to connect to the current Facebook page.

Note: Before going ahead with the above steps, make sure that you remove Oviond as a Business Integration from Facebook as well as log out of Facebook. This step is very important to make sure the connection is done correctly.

Boost posts through Meta Business Suite: Please note that if you boost your post through Meta Business Suite, the Instagram Ad account will not pull through onto Oviond with the Instagram Ads integration. In order for you to get this data, you will need to use our Facebook Ads integration and pull by data view “Campaigns”.
