When connecting a Facebook business page or a group, there sets the connection between your Facebook and PromoRepublic accounts. This is what we call a token.
It means that a certain Facebook profile gets associated with your PromoRepublic account. It is not possible to associate a certain PromoRepublic account with several Facebook accounts.
When it comes to connecting Facebook business pages check that your Facebook personal profile is assigned an Admin role on these pages. That's why check what personal profile you're authorized in at www.facebook.com.
Here is a typical flow on how to connect a Facebook business page to PromoRepublic.
1. Whether you're in the workspace settings or in the Calendar click on the connect button, and select Facebook.
2. It will trigger a pop-up window asking you to allow SocialPost to access your Facebook account information. Basically, this is the moment of setting up a token that may expire occasionally. Click Continue as [your Facebook profile name].
Find the necessary page or select all of them.
On the next step leave the toggles activated and click Done.
Finish with the OK button.
4. Pick the page in the drop-down list and click Connect.
5. Final step is to make a test post because this action will bring up another permission box. Click Continue and OK.

But if you insist on deselecting some pages, make sure that the Groups section is ticked, because it is mandatory. Otherwise, you won't be able to add pages.
