How to add an ActiveCampaign form to your Facebook page

You can use the ActiveCampaign Facebook forms integration to publish your form to your Facebook Page.

Publishing a form to Facebook automatically creates a custom tab on your Page. Custom tabs are managed in your Facebook account.

To publish your form to your Facebook Page:

1. Click "Website" on the left menu to navigate to the Forms overview page.

2. Locate the form you wish to publish, then click the "Edit" button.

3. Click the "Integrate" button.

4. Click the "Facebook" tab.

5. Click the "Get Started" button.

6. On the modal window:

  • Type your Facebook login credentials into the fields provided
  • Click the "Log In" button

7. On the next screen, select your Facebook Page:

  • Click the "Facebook Pages" dropdown
  • Click the Page you want to publish a form to
  • Click the "Add Page Tab" button

8. A confirmation message will appear. To view the form on your Page, click the "View your Facebook Page" link. 

Facebook "This page does not have permission to install the custom tab" error

Facebook changed their API and requires that Business Pages have at least 2000 Likes to install custom tabs. As a reminder, publishing an ActiveCampaign form to Facebook creates a custom tab on your business's Page.

If you have less than 2000 Likes, you will have an error when you try adding your form to your Page.

Once you have enough likes, you can add any ActiveCampaign inline form to your Page.
