Checklist for connecting Facebook pages to our platform

Last updated on December 30th, 2021

Before connecting your Facebook location to the platform:

1. Confirm you have an Admin Page Role as explained in this article.

2. Ensure the page is published and accessible for the public. Click on the 'Settings' tab on your Facebook page (top right). This will reveal the navigation panel on the left. Click on the 'General' section which contains the information regarding page visibility and restrictions. The page must be Published under Page Visibility.

3. Ensure the FB location address is showing and matching the address of your location in the platform. The location's addresses must match for the system to connect them.

4. If you wish to keep existing location data, make sure it is added to your locations in the platform before connecting your Facebook account.
