If you’ve used our Facebook Signup button on your landing pages you’ve probably noticed that it asks your leads to connect to the “KickoffLabs” app. This is because the feature requires an app within Facebook to access the information. You don’t have to use our App. You can use your own if you already have one OR you can also make your own app within Facebook.
There are a couple of things required to make this work.
1. Create Your Own Facebook App
You can skip this step if you already have a Facebook App.
Step 1. Navigate to https://developers.facebook.com (and login if you are not already logged into Facebook)
Step 2. Under the ‘My Apps’ button, ‘Add new App’
Step 3. Give your app a name
Step 4. Facebook will then send you to a getting started wizard. We can skip the wizard and jump click on the settings link in the left hand column
2. Set a CallBack URL in Facebook
Step 1. Within your Facebook app choose Settings.
Step 2. Find the box labeled “Valid OAuth Redirects URLs”
Step 3. Add the KickoffLabs callback URL: https://app.kickofflabs.com/auth/facebook/callback
Note: It is OK if you have other urls here if this app previously existed.
Step 4. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
3. Copy the App ID and Secret into KickoffLabs
Step 1. In your Facebook App, under the main ‘settings’ link in the left hand column, select ‘Basic’ and copy the App Id and App Secret
Step 2. From the KickoffLabs campaign dashboard select “Setup” and select “Advanced Settings” from the drop-down.
Step 3. From settings open the settings page for “Custom Facebook Signup”
Step 4. Paste the App ID and Secret Value into this page.
Step 5. Click Save to update these settings inside of KickoffLabs
Now, if you have not added a Facebook Sign Up button your landing pages you will now need to do that as well. Otherwise, all new signups will now flow through your own Facebook App.
