Once you are done, you can add the E-mail address of the person you want to add as an Admin and select their level of access to your Page. The e-mail address must be the e-mail address they use to log in to Facebook. Make sure you give them the appropriate level of access to your Page!

But somehow, the Facebook Admin does not get saved in the Roles area, no matter what you do! Currently, the only way to correct this is to first connect with the person as a friend.

If the Admin Roles area says Pending next to their name, have them check[ www.facebook.com/pages] while logged in to Facebook and look under the Invites section. Invites to become an Admin sometimes show on the right side of the Page.

Adding an Admin to Your Facebook Page in Business Manager

If you are working as the Business Manager, you’ll have to add the solitary to your Business Manager (as an Employee) and then give them access to your Facebook Page.

Here are how you add an Admin to your Business Page through Business Manager:

  1. Steer to your Business Manager at https://business.facebook.com/
  2. Click Business Settings in the left menu corner.
  3. Select People on the left side (It may already default to that option) and click Add.
  4. Enter the email address of the person you want to add ( Make sure their Facebook login address).
  5. Make sure Employee Access is selected, then select Next. Admin Access gives control over everything (billing, etc.)
  6. Select the Page they should work on and then select Invite.
  7. If they are also going to work on the Ads Account, you can invite them to that.

They should receive an email inviting them to work on your Page.

After selection, the person clicks the next button. So, Select the Assets and Set Permissions for the Pages and Ad Accounts. Rarely give full Admin control to anyone, as they could delete your Page. If they also need to run Ads for your account, make sure to adjust the permissions on your Ad Accounts.

Let’s Watch out for these Facebook Admin Pitfalls!

1. Make sure there is at LEAST 1 full Admin on the Page at all times.

If you remove yourself by chance as a full Admin and there is no other Admin on the Page. You’ll lose access to be able to add any other Admins. There is no troubleshooting for this problem other than trying to contact Facebook.

2. Do not give someone Full Admin rights that you don’t trust – they could delete the Page.

And they could remove you as an Admin and take over the Page. Unfortunately, there is no way to troubleshoot this either – you will have to try communicating with Facebook.

3. If you delete yourself as a Facebook Admin, you will have to have another Admin add you back to the Page.

You can delete yourself from client Pages to which you no longer need access. That is fine. But if you still need access, do not delete yourself or change your level unless you need to.

And make sure, if you need to transfer a Facebook Page from one person to another, an acceptable way to do this is to add them (as a full Admin), and then once you make sure they have access, delete yourself.
