If you are a Business Manager Admin of one or more Facebook pages, you may want to add others to take on administrative roles. Delegating a task to someone you trust can be an important step in both time management and business development. Here is how to add an Ads Manager to a Facebook page:

  1. Log into your Ads Manager Account: The Ad Account Setup page will appear.
  2. If you manage multiple business pages, use the drop-down menu on the left side of the page at the top to choose the correct business page.
  3. On the right side of the page below the Attribution information, you will see the Ad Account Roles box. Click “Add People.”

An Ad Account Advertiser can see and edit ads as well as set up new ads using the payment method that is associated with the account. An Ad Account Admin can not only do those tasks but can also edit the method of payment for ads and manage admin permissions. An Ad Account Analyst can only view ad performance and could not help to manage the account.

  1. Once the correct person and ad management role have been selected, click “Confirm.”
  2. Done!
