Step 5 - Confirm the DashThis-Facebook Ads integration setup

In this last step, you’ll be asked to confirm that the process is complete. Facebook also gives you the ability to choose what to allow when setting up the integration. If you choose to do so, check the boxes next to each Facebook Ad Account that you’d like to include in your DashThis account.

It’s important that you select every page you’re likely to pull data from; DashThis won’t be able to access data from any page for which you don’t check this box.

Authorize access to FB Permissions FBI:FBAds


Once satisfied, click on “OK”. You’ll then be brought back to your DashThis account. Should you need to go to your ads account to verify IDs, please go to your FB Ads campaign dashboard.


Now you can create reports with Facebook Ads 🙌 Not sure which data to import? No problem! We created a periodic dashboard template to help you. Simply go to your Dashboard manager page and click on Create Dashboard, search through the periodic templates or write the integrations name, and find Facebook Ads Reporting.
