The same view can be reached by visiting this link: Facebook Business Tools Settings.

4. In the panel that show up, look for "Active Business Integrations"

If Octoboard is not there, it means Octoboard was not connected to Facebook.

5. If you can see Octoboard, click on "View and Edit"

6. Make sure Octoboard has the following permissions:

1. Check Octoboard in previous screen

2. Click "Remove" button

3. Go back to Octoboard and create Facebook Connection again
