Add an action

To add an action, connect to the Facebook Pages account you want to post to and select the specific page. You can now set up your message to include custom information including text, emojis, and information from records in Airtable. You can also add a link and attachments to include in your post.

After your message looks the way you want it to you must click "Run test" to ensure the action is working properly.
