How to submit a Facebook application for review

NOTE: Before you can submit a Facebook application for review, you must create the "Facebook app", and connect BeezDesk with Facebook - the process is described in another article How to setup Facebook application.
By default, all Facebook apps are granted permissions: emailpublic_profile and user_friends.
 
BeezDesk needs some special permissions to read and post to pages and page private messages, therefore you will need to request these permissions and submit your Facebook application for approval.
 
Start the app submission process by clicking the Start submission button in the Status & Review section.
 
 
Next, a popup form will appear where you will choose the actions to approve (see image below).
 
Select 3 items: manage_pagespublish_pages and read_page_mailboxes (publish_actions is NOT necessary).
 
These are the permissions required by BeezDesk to fetch from and post to your pages and reply to personal messages on your pages.
 
Now, click "Add 3 Items" in lower right hand corner.
 
 
You will also have to write a short how-to in the "Facebook Login Integration" field for the Facebook reviewer. You can type something like this:

Now add some screenshots of how BeezDesk uses the Facebook application. You can use the images attached at the end of this article.
 
 
 
Before you can proceed to the submission of your Facebook app for review, BeezDesk must make at least one call to Facebook API. That means that the BeezDesk to Facebook connection must be set up according to the article How to setup Facebook application first, and then we can finish the submission.
 
Click the blue "Submit for review” button in the lower right hand corner of the page. You will have to confirm your submission for review by phone (you will receive a text message with a confirmation code), or by adding your credit card information. After you confirm your submission, your application is submitted for review.
 
 
That's it. Now just wait until Facebook approves your application. When approved, your BeezDesk app will be able to fetch Facebook comments as tickets, and answer them directly from each ticket.
