When building an Automation, you may choose the action called “Facebook Pages” create a new post”. When the automation runs successfully, a post will be made to the connected Facebook Page. The "Update record" action can be configured with one or more fields set to any text or to a value from a previous step or both.
To use this automation action, you’ll need a Facebook Page or Business Manager account. We do not currently support posting to personal profiles.
Choose a trigger
To start, add a new automation. You’ll need to setup your trigger to run for the content you want to post to Facebook.
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.
