Anyone who manages a Facebook Group understands how time-consuming it can be vetting and accepting new members. 

Facebook has just released Automatic Approvals for Facebook Group Members. 

How to set up automatic approvals? 

On Desktop

  • Go to your Facebook Group
  • Select "Edit Group Settings"
  • Scroll down until you see "Automatic member approvals"

  • Click "Set Up Requirments"

  • Click "Get Started"

  • You can now set up your requirements for pre-approval of members. Remember that Facebook will prompt you when someone has been auto-approved so you can check to confirm if needed. If using member questions make sure you have set these up. 
  • This method will work for free groups that you just want questions answered and location-based groups. For paid groups check out our other blog post - How To Set Up Pre-Approvals For Facebook Group Members
