This error usually means that the SmarterQueue web app has not been granted full permission to publish to your Group or Page.

We have written a guide for how to re-authorize your Facebook permissions so that you can grant the full permissions that we require.

Two-Factor Authentication

If you continue encountering any of the #200 errors even after granting the relevant permissions, be sure to check if  Two-Factor Authentication(2FA) is enabled on your Instagram Profile & Facebook Page.

Having 2FA enabled on one of the accounts while not on the other can also lead to the #200 errors and failed posts. Ensure you have 2FA enabled on both Instagram and Facebook as they are directly linked and then try to publish the content again. 

If you are a SmarterQueue customer and are still encountering permission errors after following these steps, please contact us with:

  1. Specific details about the Group/Page
  2. Screenshots of your Facebook permissions settings 

This information will help us report the issue to Facebook to investigate!
