Integrating Voluum and Facebook accounts enables Voluum to:

  • Periodically ask for campaign cost information and update it automatically.

  • Pause and resume campaigns from within Voluum interface or with auto-rules

Prerequisites

Before you perform an integration, make sure that you have the following:

  • An active Voluum account.

  • An active Facebook account.

    Caution

    Voluum Note: If you have a Business Manager Account with one or more Ad account under it, you have to integrate each Ad Account with Voluum separately.

Once you have everything ready, read the further part of this guide.

  8. (Optional) Decide if you want to see cost estimations for periods between data synchronization. The estimations are based on the last 24 hours data set. When cost will be synchronized, estimated costs will be replaced with actual ones.

  9. (Optional) Decide if you want to have your campaigns automatically matched. If you turn this off, you will have to use Integration Manager to manually match campaigns.

  10. Click the Integrate button next to the account you want to link.
