Log Facebook App Events


With the App Events API, Facebook allows your app or web page to track events, such as a user installing your app or completing a purchase. Business can make use of this to log and analyze how their users interact with their Messenger chatbot.

In WOZTELL, we support this feature in a form of an "Action" resource template, which can be added to a node. It allows you to decide what events to track and the signals will be sent to Meta during execution of the corresponding node.


This feature is only available in Facebook Integration version v1.1.0 or above.

Expected Outcome

During testing, the event can be tracked in the Test Events section under the Events Manager.


Currently, these signals will not appear in the Events Manager for production. Meta only supports tracking the "Purchase" event type in the Ad Manager. The attributed Purchase signals will be displayed under the "Meta Purchase" column in CTX campaign.
