Managing your Facebook: How to Accept Business Manager Requests  

Published On: 3 November 2023

Facebook, Meta, and Instagram are HUGE components of the digital marketing landscape, offering immense potential for businesses. The downside? Navigating through these platforms can be challenging (to say the least) due to the various levels of access. If you find yourself needing to accept or request access to Facebook (Meta) or a Business Account, continue reading below for helpful information and guidance. 


Granting Facebook Access – Accepting a Request 

Typically, when we at DT request access to a client’s Facebook/Meta page, we send in a request. The client is then notified, and simply must select “confirm”. Very rarely, you’ll need to navigate to your access requests, here’s how:

#1 Log in to Business Manager

#2 Navigate to Business Settings

  • Once logged in, click on the menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the top left corner of the screen. 
  • From the menu, select “Business Settings.” 

#3 Select the Page + View Access Requests

  • In the Business Settings, find and click on “Pages” in the left-hand menu. 
  • Click on the Page name. Within the Page settings, find the “Access Requests” tab. 
  • In the “Access Requests” tab, you will see a list of pending requests. Review the list to identify the request you want to accept. 
  • Click on the request you wish to accept. This will open a detailed view of the request. 

#4 Adjust Permissions (if necessary)

  • Review and adjust the permissions if needed. You can customize the level of access the requester will have. 

#5 Accept Request

  • After reviewing, click on the “Approve Request” or a similar button (the wording might vary slightly).
