[intro]Before you begin this Guide, you need to have opened a Facebook Business account and linked it to your Facebook Page. You will need to add the member of staff to your Facebook Business account first before you can assign them to your Catalogue and other aspects of the Facebook Business Manager platforms. 


In this Guide, you’ll learn how to add one of your members of staff to your Facebook Business account to help you manage your Facebook presence. You need to make sure that you have linked assets - such as your Facebook Page - to your commerce account before you can add any additional members of staff.
