Reasons for missing Facebook Pages or Groups
You’re Not an Admin
You personal profile must be the creator or admin of a Facebook Group or Page in order to add it to SmarterQueue.
You are Logged Into the Wrong Facebook Profile
On Facebook.com, you must be logged into the Facebook Profile that is an admin/creator of the Facebook Group or Page you’re trying to connect.
You haven’t granted SmarterQueue permissions (or need to re-grant permissions)
When connecting a Facebook Group or 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 Group or Page.
You haven’t granted permissions for that specific Page or Group
When you first connect your Facebook profile to SmarterQueue, you will be asked to grant us 3 permissions:
- post to your profile
- manage your pages/groups
- publish to your pages
During the permissions step for pages, you may have clicked “Review the info that you provide”, which lets you choose which of your pages/groups to grant us permission to manage. 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/group AFTER you’ve connected to SmarterQueue for the first time, your page/group won’t be visible to us.
How to fix missing Facebook Pages/GroupsIn any of these cases, the only solution is to fix your permissions in Facebook’s settings, using the following steps:
- Visit this Facebook settings page:
- Click View and Edit on the SmarterQueue app.
- Known Bug as of 13th June 2018– 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/group in the SmarterQueue website, making sure to grant all permissions.
- “Manage your Pages”
- “Publish as Pages you manage”
- “Show a list of the Pages that you manage”
What if my pages/groups still don't appear?
What Facebook permissions do I need to grant?
When connecting your Page/Group, make sure you grant the permissions correctly for each of these Facebook popups:
||We do not access for any information beyond your public profile, so there are no options in “Review the info that you provide”.|
||Even if you do not plan to post to your personal profile, we still need your permission to publish to your Facebook Pages/Groups on your behalf. We will only ever post to your profile if you add your personal profile in SmarterQueue.|
||To avoid future issues, you should click “OK” on this permission popup – otherwise if you click “Choose what you allow” and only grant permission for specific pages (see below), any new pages you add in the future will not appear in SmarterQueue until you edit the granular permissions.|
||If you need to set granular permissions for specific pages, make sure that the pages you’re adding are checked in “Manage Your Pages AND “Publish as Pages you manage”, and that the “Insights” option remains checked|
