How Does SmartSuite Integrate with Facebook?

Facebook is a prominent social media platform that enables users to connect, share, and communicate with others. Notably, it allows users to store and share images, fostering visual engagement and personal expression within its social networking framework.

The ability to attach Facebook images could be useful in various scenarios, such as marketing campaigns, creative projects, event planning, or any situation where visual content enhances the understanding of the information in SmartSuite. The SmartSuite file picker supports native integration with Facebook, providing you easy access to your entire collection of pictures.

How Can I Use Files From Facebook in SmartSuite?

SmartSuite has a native integration with Facebook that allows you to select an image from your existing Facebook account and copy it into SmartSuite. Facebook images are available anywhere in SmartSuite where you use the file picker control, which includes:

  • Files & Images fields. You can select files from Facebook and attach them to a Files & Images field, just like you would when you select a file from your computer.

  • SmartDocs. You can use files from Facebook when inserting an attachment, image or video.

  • Comments. When you add an attachment to a comment, you can select Facebook as the source for the images you want to attach.

  • Solution Guides. Every Solution Guide (accessed from the Solution drop-down menu) is really a SmartDoc, and as such supports images and videos you select in Facebook.

  • Communications Center emails. If you choose to upload a file attachment in an email in Communications Center, Dropbox is one of the options to pick files from.

Selecting any of these options will open the file picker:

Connecting to Facebook

Simply click the Connect Facebook button in the file picker control. You will be prompted to log in on Facebook's website (or to create a new account). Enter your email and password to proceed.

After successfully logging in you will be returned to the file picker, with your Facebook folders and images will be displayed. Simply select one or more to attach them to the record, comment or other SmartSuite input that supports files.

The file picker allows you to view the selected files, and the click Upload to load them into SmartSuite.
