How it works

Your client clicks Send message on your Facebook page.

This client sends you a message via Facebook Messenger.

You'll receive only Facebook messages in Bitrix24 Messenger, not Facebook posts or comments.

You get this message in Bitrix24 Messenger and reply to your customer there.

If there is no such a client in your CRM database, a new lead is created (automatically or manually, depending on which option you've enabled in the open channel settings).

Important details:
  • The operator should reply to the client's messages in Facebook within 24 hours after the last message of the client. After 24 hours, the operator's messages will not be delivered to the client.
  • When Bitrix24 administrator connects Facebook page, the page the administrator is currently logged in to gets connected.
  • When you disconnect the connected Facebook user in open channel settings, the Facebook page gets disconnected too.
  • When the connected Facebook user loses his/her administrative rights, this Facebook page gets disconnected automatically.
  • You can connect Facebook Page only (not groups!).
  • Any Bitrix24 administrator can connect/disconnect Facebook pages if he/she has access permissions to Open Channels settings.
  • You cannot connect the same Facebook page with open channels in several Bitrix24. Only the one that was connected last will work.
  • If your message contains more than 640 characters, it will be sent split.
  • You cannot edit/delete messages in this open channel.
