Components of Facebook Group Admin Tools

Facebook group admin tools comprise various parts that are useful for managing and growing the group. Let’s see how the components of admin tools accelerate the management and growth of the Facebook group.

Admin Assist

It is one of the most advanced, handy, and vast features among all the tools available in Facebook group admin tools. It empowers the Facebook group admin to manage the group more efficiently with better automation. This 24/7 automation tool can help Facebook group admins and moderators save time and keep the community safe. By setting different criteria you can automatically manage member requests, temporarily suspend, and manage posts and comments.

Besides, you can also find features like; post management, comments management and sorting, managing chats, and creating post formats.

Member Request/Participant Request

These admin tools help the Facebook group, admins/moderators, to check the membership requests. You will see this option if you set the option “Who can approve member requests” to “only admins and moderators”. This will help you to check the members' profiles and approve them one by one into your group.

Badge Request

There are various badges in the Facebook group that can be assigned to admins, moderators, and other members. In this section, an admin can see the badge requests from the members, if there are any. Here is an illustration of the badges available in the Facebook group settings.

Membership Questions/Participant Questions

Membership questions and participant questions are the same. In a private Facebook group, it is called membership questions. Once you create a public group you may not see this participant question feature. You need to enable the option “only admins and moderators” in the “Who can approve member request option” in the Facebook group settings.

You can set a maximum of three Facebook group membership questions. New joining members will face these questions once they try to join your group. By asking for the email address in any of the three questions, you can also build your email list from a Facebook group.

Pending Approvals

This is where you will see the pending posts or any other Facebook group content that the members want to post in your group. If you are in a public group, make the option “ON” “Posts by members must be approved by an admin or moderator.” while in closed groups, they automatically go through this filtering. So no need for manual ON. Every post and content that your community members make will be sorted here for approval from admins.

Scheduled Posts

Facebook group admins do not need social media scheduling tools anymore. The post-scheduling feature is now available in the Facebook group. Facebook group owners can write posts and schedule them for later.  With this feature, you can line up your posts for the upcoming days. Hence, you do not need to post in the group every day.

Activity Log

This is the place where you can see what your other admins or moderators did with your group. You can also check your activities here and know what you did and when you did it and have the scope to check the activities by filtering the information. Moreover, you have the scope to filter the activity log based on date, admin/moderator, current member, previous member, activity type, and many more.

Group Rules

Facebook group rules are important to manage your community more efficiently. Once you create a Facebook group, add the rules that you expect your members to follow. You can create or edit the group rules in this section of Facebook group admin tools. There are some pre-made rules templates that you can use for your Facebook group. Make the rules clear and understandable to your Facebook group members. Moreover, it will be helpful for you to manage the group and for the members to understand what can be done and what not.

Member Reported Content

It’s not 100% possible to keep the group spam-free. There will be members who do something wrong in the posts or comments. This feature of the Facebook group allows the group members to report a post or comment if they don’t like that or if there is something wrong. Here, Facebook group admins can see all the reported content.  After reviewing the claim, the admin can keep or remove that reported content.

Moderation Alert

This is another advanced feature of the Facebook group that can be used for automating group management. You can enter some keywords for which you want to moderate the content in your Facebook group. For example, you have added the keyword “Support” in the moderation alert. You will get the notification once someone is writing the “Support” in the comment of a post. For engagement, you can choose the type of content from Posts or Comments. Based on the comments and reactions, you can moderate the posts or comments.

Group Status

Previously this feature of Admin tools was named Group Quality while now it’s Group status. Both group quality and group growth features are combined here now along with the community support feature. Now you can allow Facebook to suggest your group to others who might be interested via this feature. Indeed, this is an organic way of growing a Facebook group. If you turn off the suggestion, Facebook will snooze for 30 days to recommend your group to others.

All admins and moderators are concerned about the quality of the group. No one would like Facebook to shut down the group. It is not easy to grow a Facebook group. Facebook has certain rules and policies for the Facebook group, especially on the type of posts. Facebook will show if there is any violation in this section.

Community Roles

After the latest updates, Support Your Community is no longer a Facebook admin tool. Facebook has brought Community roles now and moved the former feature within the Group status tool. From here you can see and set who is responsible for everything within the group. Almost every group put the Admin and Moderator role as the responsible party. This is another cool feature that is introduced to Facebook groups.
