Connecting to Ad Accounts and Selecting Pages

To connect a Facebook ad account to an Engaging Networks account, go to the Extensions Manager under Account Settings. Select ‘Extensions‘ and click on Facebook. select “Account Access” in the Lead Forms area and then the “Connect Account” button.

Please note: A stable Facebook connection is necessary to ensure there will not be any disruptions to lead forms mapped and related automations set once an account is linked. Changing the password associated with your Facebook account once linked may require re-connecting the account and specific form mappings if disconnected.

Then choose the platform to connect to (currently only Facebook is available). After connecting to the account using your Facebook credentials, choose the pages to use with Engaging Networks and configure what Engaging Networks is allowed to do.

Campaign Page Settings

After mapping the fields from your lead form, you can set the campaign page settings. Attributes, origin source, tracking, and campaign references fields are optional.

  • Attributes – Attributes are descriptive “tags” applied to pages and emails that you build in the software. You can then query on that attribute and supporters who participated on a page or interacted with an email with an attribute will be returned.
  • Origin source – ‘Origin Source’ can be stored in a supporter’s data record to help identify where the record originated from and compare different channels on performance.
  • Tracking – Tracking parameters are values that can be appended to page URLs and are stored as part of the transaction.
  • Campaign References 6-10 – External Reference fields 6-10 are values stored as part of the transaction.

Subscribing to the Lead Form

Once you have mapped fields, campaign settings, and actions on entry as desired, you will need to select to ‘Subscribe’ to the lead form to update the status to ACTIVE.

Lead Form Subscription

If workflow settings are not completed, this will produce an error message to continue editing, or if validated, you may proceed to subscribe to start receiving leads from Facebook. Once subscribed, field mapping will not be editable. Campaign page settings may still be adjusted as needed after subscribing.

Reporting on Lead Forms

Once the sync is active and leads are submitted, you can use query builder to query on the submissions under the “Advocacy” tab which is represented with a megaphone icon. The form names will be listed with LEADGEN and you can use this to search for the forms. The submissions will create DCF transactions.
