Troubleshooting Connection Issues

If you have a failed social message or your group has become disconnected, follow the steps below.

1. Confirm You Are a Facebook Admin

Go to the Members tab within to check whether you’re an admin. See screenshot below.

  • If you are an admin, we find that the most common issue is that your CoSchedule app within the Facebook Group needs to be removed and re-added (steps 1-4 in the section above).
  • If you are not an admin, have an existing admin add you, then repeat steps 1-7 above.

2. Check Facebook Permissions

Tip: Social publishing from your calendar may not work properly if all permissions aren’t enabled.
  1. Under your Business Integrations settings in Facebook, go to the CoSchedule permissions.
  2. Click View and Edit on the CoSchedule app.
  3. Select all Facebook pages, Facebook groups, and Instagram accounts you want to be connected to CoSchedule, and enable all permissions. You may need to scroll through this menu depending on this account.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Go to your CoSchedule Social Profiles page and connect your page.

3. Contact Facebook Support

If none of the above steps work, the issue may be with Facebook and CoSchedule will be unable to help troubleshoot further. For your convenience, here is a link to contact Facebook Support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can posts appear as though published from my Facebook page? 

Posts published to a Facebook Group will appear to be posted by the Facebook profile that was used to connect the Group to CoSchedule. When you or other team members on your calendar schedule posts to the Facebook Group, they will always appear as being posted by that Facebook profile.
