Facebook Self Onboarding

This page explains how to connect your Facebook page Heyday Chatbot on Messenger.

Connecting your Facebook page to Heyday Chatbot on Messenger is a very important step to get the Bot up and running. In coordination with your Heyday representative, you can now connect your Facebook business pages on your own. This enhances confidentiality and security while keeping the ownership of the pages to you.


Please note that a Facebook Testing page is NOT mandatory, however, it is HIGHLY recommended as it provides a safe environment for testing purposes, rather than your official Facebook Business page.

Official Facebook page

Facebook Testing page(Pre-Production)

The Heyday Inbox pre-production as well as the Heyday Inbox production pages are created by your Enterprise Service Manager.

Follow these steps to get your company pre-production and production pages connected to the Heyday pre-production and production organization pages, respectively.

You'll need to repeat these steps two times in order to connect the testing and the main pages:
