Do you and/or your team manage a Facebook Group for your company?

Good news. Starting today, you can track member growth from your group in Databox.

Specifically, you’ll be able to track and visualize 4 default metrics, including Total Members, Current Pending Requests, Member Growth, and New Members (with 2 pre-built visualizations) alongside all of the other KPIs that are important to your business.

Default metrics are ones that include pre-built visualizations, meaning all you need to do is drag-and-drop them into your dashboard to visualize your performance.

No code or design necessary.

I’ll show you how to do that below.

First, let me show you how to quickly get started via a pre-built Facebook Groups template.
