My Facebook Page Or Instagram Profile Is Missing When I Try To Add It

Changes to Facebook Groups Publishing

Facebook unexpectedly decided to remove Groups API access, preventing any third-party tools, including SmarterQueue, from interacting with your Facebook Groups. After April 22nd, 2024, SmarterQueue will no longer be able to publish directly to groups you manage. You can still schedule posts for these groups, but will receive email notifications for easy manual posting instead. You may also wish to consider transitioning to a Facebook Page for better engagement.

There are a number of reasons why a Facebook Page or Instagram Profile may not show up when you try to add it to SmarterQueue, or why a Facebook Page may not show when you try to add it to Inbox or SmarterQueue.

Read more about the common reasons for this, and how to fix each one.

Why Is My Facebook Page Or Instagram Profile Missing?

You’re not an Admin.

Your personal Facebook Profile must be the creator or admin of a Facebook Page in order to add it to SmarterQueue.

You are logged into the wrong Facebook Profile.

On, you must be logged into the Facebook Profile that is an admin/creator of the Facebook Page you’re trying to connect.

Note: You must be logged into a full Facebook Profile to access all features of Facebook and SmarterQueue.

You haven’t granted SmarterQueue permissions (or need to re-grant permissions).

When connecting to a Facebook Page, you must allow all permissions when you are prompted. You should re-grant permissions if you failed to allow the permissions when you originally connected a Page.

You haven’t granted SmarterQueue permissions for the specific Page you're trying to connect to.

This is especially relevant when adding a Facebook Page to Inbox. If you haven't granted permission for the specific page you're trying to connect, it won't appear to add to Inbox.  

When you first connect your Facebook profile to SmarterQueue, you will be asked to grant us 4 permissions:

  1. Manage your pages
  2. Publish as Pages you manage
  3. Access your Pages and App Insights
  4. Manage and access your Pages messaging

During the permissions steps for pages, you may have not selected all of the pages available, and/or failed to grant us full permission to manage them. You can turn some pages off, which means we won’t ever show them when you try connecting them in SmarterQueue.

Note: If you create a new Facebook page AFTER you’ve connected to SmarterQueue for the first time, your page won’t be visible to us.

You haven't properly converted your Instagram account from a Personal to a Business Profile.

In order to access more analytics and engagement metrics inside of SmarterQueue for your Instagram account, you'll need to convert your Personal Instagram Profile to a Business Profile, then reconnect it to SmarterQueue via a Facebook Page.

Please follow the steps in this article to do so:

How To Fix A Missing Facebook Page Or Instagram Profile

In any of these cases, the solution is to fix your permissions in Facebook’s settings, using the following steps:

1. On the Facebook website, Navigate to 'Settings & privacy'

2. Then continue to 'Settings' > ' Business Integrations'

3. Find the SmarterQueue App and select 'View and edit'

Note: There is a known bug as of 13th June 2018 where the 'View and Edit' link is broken for some users. This has been reported to Facebook. In this case, you should check the box next to SmarterQueue, click the Remove button above, and then re-connect your Page in the SmarterQueue website, making sure to grant all permissions.

4. A dialogue box will appear where you'll then see a section with details on the 'PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU ARE SHARING WITH THIS BUSINESS INTEGRATION'.

There are several sections where you can select permissions. 

5. In each section, ensure the permission is toggled 'on.' 

6. If you have multiple Facebook Pages or Instagram Profiles, make sure that individual permissions are granted for the ones you're trying to add

7. Once you've confirmed the permissions are set correctly and toggled on, click 'Save'.

8. You can now try adding your Page or Instagram Profile again in SmarterQueue 🎉

What If My Facebook Page Or Instagram Profile Still Doesn't Appear?

If you don’t see links to edit which Pages or Instagram Profiles have been granted permission, it’s likely that you have granted permission to ALL Pages already. 
If you still can’t see your Page or Instagram Profile, please follow the steps in this helpful article to remove  Business Integrations and re-authorize your Facebook permissions:
