    Good day, I am trying to test out the below but there is no ADMIN SETTINGS / MOBILE in FB anymore - please can you go over step by step what I need to do, so that filling in the form will automatically post as a status update on a facebook page?

    I cannot find this "email address" for my FB page.

    Facebook assigns a special email address to a page to which you can send e-mail messages to be automatically converted to status updates.

    You will need to use this email address as the recipient for your form's notification.

    To get this e-mail address:

    1.  Log in to your Facebook page's admin account

    2.  Use Facebook as [your page's name]

    3.  Click Admin Settings

    4.  Click Mobile

     

    After retrieving this email address, create a separate notification for your form

    1.  Click Setup & Embed > Email Alerts > Add New Email
    2.  Choose Notification then click Next
    3.  In the Compose Email wizard, click Use Text E-mail then delete everything in the email body
    4.  Create a status update template in the Subject line. For example:  {name} has joined our club today. {name} is from {address}.

    The field placeholders (in curly brackets) are automatically generated when you click the corresponding field name on the Form Fields menu found at the right hand side of the Compose E-mail screen. That means you can choose which fields you want to display on your Facebook status update.

    Click here to see the notifcation template for my sample form which automatically posts updates to a test Facebook page.

    If you want to post data directly on the wall of the Facebook Page, It is not possible with Jotform. However, it is possible with zappier integration.

    Alternatively, you can use your Facebook's recipient email address while you're creating your notification. Please, check the guides below for more information:
