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.

NOTE: Before you start, make sure your Facebook Page has at least 2000 fans. Quoting Facebook from this page: "The Page Tabs feature is only available to Pages with 2000 or more fans, or pages managed by whitelisted apps."

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.

    What if i want to add two forms on a single page?

  • nolacreativestudio

    I followed these instructions and am still getting an error message stating that This page does not have permission to install tab. Has anyone found a solution?

  • jmtserene

    Hi, what is a whitelisted app? Any examples?

  • bzzwordltravelglobal

    help pls, i tried this but it says This page does not have permission to install the custom tab.

    what seems to be the problem?

    Good article. All the points and steps are very clearly explained. It is very informative and interesting to read.

  • MonicaFeagin

    Difficult time..

  • mtrosen

    There isn't 2,000 possible customers in my entire operating region, it is unreasonable to expect me to have 2000 users before the tab will install. I just wasted 2 hours due to this site's neglect in providing that information in the beginning. This is small town U.S.A., Not some big metropolitan city. What a waste.

  • S_Sabatine

    You don't need 200 Plus fans
    I figured it out and posted it in the forums here: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1486119-For-Those-having-issues-adding-JotForm-to-Facebook#0

  • Domonic

    Need help activating web paige

  • Farhad0171

    Please help me.

  • Mtr

    Excellent. I have one issue this form isn't accessible from mobile, appreciated if you fix this issue. Also not receiving email on user end

  • Abeigh

    I too am getting the "This page does not have permission to install the custom tab" error. If this issue was known to JotForm then it would perhaps have been a good idea to state somewhere that unless you have 2000 likes on your Facebook page you won't be able to add the form to it rather than letting people waste time making the form only for it to not work.

  • funcheon

    I have several times to tried to add a jot form tab to Facebook, but keep getting the following error message:

    "This page does not have permission to install the custom tab"

    Help?

  • commedia

    I think that this function don't work correctly now in FB! Do you have solution? thank you

  • Verge

    When I try to embed a form to Facebook, I get an error message from Facebook
    "This page does not have permission to install the custom tab"
    This is confusing because I have embedded a jotform on another Facebook page with no issue.
    Facebook's instructions see incomplete and did not correct the issues either.

    Do you know how to correct this issue?

  • squeakycleanhouse2

    When I try to do this, the pop-up window tells me my Facebook page does not allow access to do this. How or where do I modify to allow this in my Facebook account? I have looked everywhere! Thx

  • Glen Lewis

    is there a way to remove the gear so people can only use the form that I put on there?

  • vsapiro

    I am trying to use my form in a FB ad. I was able to do it a few years ago, but now when I create an ad in FB it only seems to offer me to build a form in FB or choose among the forms previously created in FB.
    Is there a way to link my Jot form which I already added as a tab? Does FB no longer allows third party forms?

  • joseph Martin

    Kindly tell if there is any option to create a query form button on facebook.

  • Jalil safda

    My facebook id block plz unlocked it

  • Toni Johnstone

    Where does the completed form go when it is submitted, and is there a way that you can add a form to the inbox as we post missing and found pets and if we could get them to fill out a questionaire before we post for them it would be so much more efficient, Toni

  • Samar

    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.

  • Aleena Rathee

    Thank you so much jot Forms

  • ACP11900

    Is there any way in which you can decide which forms are accessible through you facebook? I am trying to build and few forms for internal company use only but I dont them to be viewable on the facebook app.

  • sloughbottom

    BRILLIANT. I am going to try that when my form is all finished. THANK YOU JOTFORMMMMMM

  • TabIsMe

    When I click on the drop down tab to select the page to add it to, the page I need is not listed. Why?
