How To Connect And Post To Facebook Pages

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.

Connecting your Facebook Page to SmarterQueue is easy!  As is standard with all 3rd party apps, you'll need to accept permissions to allow your Facebook account's connection to SmarterQueue before you can post; learn how to connect and post to your Facebook Page with the guide below πŸŽ‰

How To Connect A Facebook Page

1. Navigate to the Profiles page on your SmarterQueue dashboard.  

2. Make sure you’re logged into the Facebook account that is an admin of the Page you’d like to connect inside your browser, then click on the "Connect" button for Facebook.

3. Click on "Edit access" to ensure all necessary permissions are granted.

4. Make sure all toggles are enabled to grant full permissions and avoid errors in using your Pages with SmarterQueue (granular permissions can cause issues using your Facebook Page with SmarterQueue due to Facebook API issues).

5. Scroll back up and click "X" from the top right.

6. Then click "Continue as" to be redirected back to SmarterQueue.

7. Choose which Facebook Page(s) you want to connect to by clicking on the relevant profile card and then selecting "Add".

Great job! You've now successfully connected your Facebook Page πŸŽ‰

Note: After you have connected your first Page, for any subsequent Pages you add you will see a screen confirming that you've previously granted permissions, including a link if you want to edit the permissions you have granted, and then you will select the Page(s) you want to add to SmarterQueue.

How To Post To A Facebook Page

1. Navigate to the Post Editor by selecting Create a Post.

2. Choose a Category for your Post.
