Step 5 - Confirm the DashThis-Facebook Insights integration setup


In the 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 Page 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.

Simply go to your Dashboard manager page and click on Create Dashboard, search through the periodic templates or write the integration's name, and find Facebook Insights Report.
