How do I use Admin Assist in my Facebook group?

Admin Assist isn't available in all groups yet.
Admin Assist can help you manage posts and participation in your group based on criteria that you set. Here are a few ways you can use Admin Assist:
  • Limit who participates in the group by automatically declining incoming posts from certain users, such as new members or people without profile pictures.
  • Automatically approve participant requests by certain users, such as people who answered the participation questions. (Note that Admin Assist can’t automatically approve membership requests right now.)
  • Reduce spam in your group by selecting preset criteria that automatically decline posts and comments that are likely to be spam.
  • Limit promotional content by declining posts that include links or that include certain keywords.
  • Manage conflict by removing posts that are reported a certain number of times.
  • Automatically share feedback with people whose posts don’t meet each criteria, giving them the option to edit and resubmit their post for review.
