Switching the Facebook page connected to your bot is possible. However, the subscribers you've gathered are specific to the Facebook page connected at the time of the opt-in only.
This means if you switch Facebook pages, you'll lose all of your current bot subscribers.
If you're switching from another chatbot platform but are using the same Facebook page, then your subscribers can carry over! Check out this article for details on how to do that. You can also contact our support team for details using the support icon on our website, or by emailing [email protected].
How do I switch Facebook pages?
To switch Facebook pages, you'll have to disconnect from your current one. You can find that option by navigating to "Bot Settings" under Settings in the left-nav menu:
Then you'll have to unpublish and disconnect your current Facebook page.
Once that's done, you'll be able to reconnect to any other Facebook page that you have admin access to:
Why isn't my page appearing as an option?
There may be a few reasons for this, including:
- Your Facebook account may not have admin access to the page.
- The page may already be connected to another bot.
- Octane AI may not have the necessary permissions on the page.

Can I connect my Facebook page to more than one bot?
Currently, Facebook pages can only be connected to one bot at a time. This means if you'd like to use multiple bots, you'll have to create a unique page for each one.
Bots can only be connected to one store at a time as well, so each bot you have will require a unique Shopify store as well.
Can I make a copy of my bot?
Making a copy of your bot isn't possible at the moment.
If you switch the Facebook page your bot is connected to, your bot's features and setup will remain. The only parts of your bot that won't carry over are the subscribers that opted into the old Facebook page.
This means any widgets, convos, smart responses and messages you've setup will still remain on your bot.
