How to add a user to the Facebook Business Manager to share access

Business Manager can also provide access to the other users and can add new partners to the account. And you can do it easily.

Just go to the “People” section, and there you will see an option “Add Users”. Just click on the blue button “+Add” and add the username of the person you want to add. Then start providing permissions.

These are the kind of roles available that you can assign to the users:

  2. Employee: Given rights to access assigned tools and accounts.
  3. Finance Analyst: Given rights to access business financial details.
  4. Finance Editor: Given rights to edit all kind of financial details.

Be cautious about who you add as an Admin because even a little change to the permissions can have a huge impact on the account. Make certain that you or another person of your team have the duty to maintain the user base. If you put in an employee, you can select permissions to assign to that person from pages to catalogs.

How to Add Ad Accounts and Pages?

  2. The pages that you are presently an admin can be maintained. For every page that already exists, you will have to request to the page to access. When you send a request, Facebook will send a notification to the page owner. If you click on to create an ad account or new page, one will be created and added to the Facebook Business Manager.
  3. Once an ad account or page is created, do not overlook to add new people to it with suitable permissions and access.
