Adding a Form to Your Facebook Page

Adding a Form to Your Facebook Page

Adding forms to your Facebook page is quick and easy using JotForm.

Please follow the steps below:

Assuming that your form is already created and you are in the Form Builder:

1. Click PUBLISH at the top.

2. Go to the PLATFORMS on the left nav.

3. Then select FACEBOOK.

4. After clicking FACEBOOK, click the ADD JOTFORM TAB button.

5. A popup window will show up and ask you to log in your Facebook account.

6. After logging in to Facebook, the "Add Page Tab" window will appear and you will have the option to choose the Facebook Page you would like your form to be added to. On the screencast below, the Facebook account only has one page, named "Sample Company". After selecting the page, click the ADD PAGE TAB button.

5. You will be prompted with this message after successfully adding your form to your Facebook Page. Click the link, GO TO  YOUR PAGE, to open your Facebook Page.

6. In your Facebook page, you'll see a "Contact Us" tab. Click it to view your form.

How to Change the Tab Title? 🔗

a. In your Facebook Page, click "Settings" on the upper right hand corner.

b. Click "Edit Page".

c. Click "Settings" on the Contact Us tab then click "Edit Settings".


d. Afterwards, type in your Custom Tab Name.

e. In the same screenshot above, you can also change the Custom Tab Image.

How to Change the Form in My Facebook Page? 🔗

If you want to change the form, you do not need to remove the tab and add it again into the Embed Form wizard. You can manage it right in the tab/app page. If you are logged in to your account, you should see a GEAR (settings) icon on the left. Just click it and select a form from the list.

IMPORTANT: Facebook Tabs won't work on mobile. It's not something we imposed, it's just something Facebook hasn't deployed yet. Viewing it on a desktop should work as intended.

There's a discussion on this page that will further explain Facebook's stand on this. That post came straight from the Facebook Team, courtesy of a Developer Support Engineer.

    I am having the same issue as IBCBoilingbrook. I followed the steps and supposedly added the app to my page but I cannot find the app anywhere in my account. When I try to view the answer on the above thread, it doesn't load. Can you please advise what the issue may be?

  • IBCBolingbrook

    This is not working...i followed the steps perfectly, but keep getting the error when performing step 4 (jotform v4) :

    All of the Facebook Pages that you are an admin of have already had this App Tab installed.

    But when i log into my facebook page, and try to perform steps 5 and 6, I cannot see the jotform app anywhere and on my Facebook account, when i go to "Partner Apps and Services, it says "You haven't added any services to your Page yet."

    My facebook page URL: https://www.facebook.com/ibcbolingbrook/

  • fullcyclecreative

    I just did this, got a message that it successfully added to my page, but now when I go to my page, I get an error message that the page cannot be loaded. I can't remove it if I can't see it. It seems like it broke my page! www.facebook.com/AITSsouthlake

  • LS_Launch

    Can this registration be added to an event on my facebook page?

  • Press10

    I don't have anything under "services" for "apps", just "partner apps and services" and it's empty. When I went back to see if I missed a step, it no longer shows the page I added it to leading me to believe that's because I've already added it. I just don't know where to find the app on Facebook since it's not under "partner apps and services". Does that make sense?

  • Press10

    Once I go into Facebook, under apps and services, the jot form app isn't there. What did I miss?

  • Press10

    The add form to your Facebook page button is not working. Nothing happens at all when I click on it.

  • Jillity

    I'm an admin for a club page but Jotform doesn't give me the choice of adding a tab to the club page.

    Dear Jotform Support Team

    When I follow the steps as provided in the link for adding a form to FB pages, the ADD JOTFORM TAB button does nothing. The window to login to my FB page does not come up.

    Please advise, as I think I would prefer this FB option to the Fit Form option as I need to collect registrations through FB and an online Reg Form.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  • michael

    Also on the desktop version of facebook, it is saying the form is not available
