Manage & Approve all Contest Entries before they go Live on Fan Page.

TabSite Platinum allows Page Admins to have the option to pre-approve all Contest entries before they would be live publicly on the Facebook Page.  This moderation feature gives Page Admins more control over entries and enables stronger protection against entries not meeting all contest requirements.



Editable Form Builder with Export

With the Platinum version of TabSite, Page Admins can build their own custom forms to use on their Facebook tabs and tab websites.  Admins can view form data submissions as well as export all captured data to csv files that can be opened in Excel.


Sweepstakes Random Winner Picker

The Platinum plan gives Facebook Page Admins a tool in the Export area to view entries and to select number of winners (up to 5) and then the system randomly selects a winner or up to the top 5, making it easy to have a random winner identified for each sweepstakes you run!





View Voters / Moderate Voters

The Platinum version of TabSite gives Page Admins the ability to moderate voting to ensure a fair contest for all.  Page Admins can view a list of those that have voted and a link to the Facebook Profile of those voting.  This allows Page Admins to verify how many times a user has voted and if they are a valid Facebook profile.

The TabSite Platinum features give Facebook Page Admins a robust feature set to manage Contests, Sweepstakes, and forms.  Together these tools empower Page Admins with ability to manage, export, and moderate engaging promotions on a fan page.

Facebook Releases New Page Tools Including Promoting and Scheduling

New Facebook Page Tools

 Hot on the heels of a new iPhone app to help manage Pages that Facebook launched last week, they have now quietly launched more tools of value for Page Admins.

It definitely seems that Facebook is moving fast to boost their now public company and try to appease shareholders by opening up Page features, including some further ways for Facebook to increase their revenue. Here are the 3 new tools that Facebook has launched this week.

Advanced Admin Features

Up until recently all you could really do was add people as a general Page Admin.  This was a bit of a security risk for pages with a large amount of admins who all had different functions but the same total access to all Page areas and functions.  With this new Facebook update you can now assign different roles to all users and make sure that admins only have the permissions you want them to have. The following table explains what you can now do.


Scheduling Posts

Until late this week, Page Admins were only able to schedule posts through third party apps like Plan Your Post or Hootsuite but Facebook has now introduced this functionality which will be a big help to small businesses who are short on time and people, but who want to post on weekends and at other key engagement times when they are not at a computer. You can pre-schedule a post to your Facebook Timline and schedule up to 6 months in advance.  See our more complete blog post on the Facebook Post Scheduler.



Promoted Posts

Facebook has now given Page Admins ability to promote individual posts from within the Timeline News Feed. This function will allow you to reach more of the people who like your Page rather than the selected few who would see your content organically. You can also see how many people see your posts organically and virally by clicking on the stats under each posts.



Have you tried the new tools?



New Facebook Contest Feature for Page Admins

The TabSite Contest Suite of tools allows Facebook Page Admins to run interactive contests on their Facebook fan pages.  Page Admins can run either Photo, Video, or Content/Essay Contests.  

To date this allowed Facebook Page Admins to create contests where fans submit entries for others to vote on.

TabSite is now pleased to announce the release of a new tool within Contests allowing Facebook Page Admins to add only their entries for users to vote on.  This new feature gives Admins ability to run a contest where visitors vote on entries setup by the Page Admin.

Page Admins: Showcase your own entries for fan voting!

Perfect for offering fan voting on new products and to get visitor input on your offerings.  

Add your company images or videos and have fans vote on which they like best!



This versatile tool allows Facebook Page Admins to implement contests in a variety of ways.  For example, a company could test which flavor or ice cream users want you to create by uploading images of each flavor and running voting on those items.

  • Boost engagement and sharing
  • Drive visitors to your Page to vote
  • Get buy-in from users by allowing them to select what you offer next!


Available now in the Contest Widget within TabSite Gold Plans and above.

Master Admin Update to offer Payment Access

TabSite is pleased to offer a requested functionality addition to the Master Admin role offered within the TabSite Manager.

TabSite users can add Master Admins to any TabSite Plan (Free-Gold) so that the Master Admin can access and manage the tabs and content on the tabs of that fan page.  Now TabSite has added the ability for the TabSite user to grant Payment update access to Master Admins.


This new feature for Master Admins is an additional toggle that can be checked for Master Admins that will give them ability to see the payment status for that fan page and to be able to update the credit card that will be used for billing to one of their own credit cards on record.  Master Admins never have access to the credit card number of the TabSite user that granted them Master Admin permissions so security is always maintained but this addition allows for the situations where one user creates a TabSite account but another person such as a Community Manager does most of the tab updating. 

Now the Master Admin can ensure that the fan page service is current in the event a a credit card has expired.

Current TabSite plan users wanting to give this function to existing Master Admins should go to the Account Information area in the TabSite Manager and under “Administrator Manager”, select the fan page to grant access to, add a Master Admin and check the “Payment Profile Access” box.  Existing Master Admins would need to be removed and then re-added with the new feature to enable the functionality for them.  This is per fan page.

More Power.  More Tools.  TabSite.

With Multiple Admins Standard – TabSite Makes it Easy to Collaborate


From the beginning, starting with our Free Plan level, TabSite allows you to add other Admins to your TabSite accounts per fan page for ease of collaboration. 

This means you can assign one team member to have access to edit the TabSite custom tabs for fan page “A”,  and another can be assigned to have access to the TabSite tabs for fan page “B”, etc.  Are you a designer doing work for a client?  No problem.  You can create the account and assign them Admin access, or vice versa.



1. Make sure that the person you are adding is an Admin of the Fan Page on Facebook. (They need to be in order for them to Add new Tabs.)

2. Then login into the TabSite Manager and click on ‘Account Information’ in the left navigation bar.

3. From the options on this page, choose Administrator Manager.




Enter the email address of the person you want to make an admin of your Facebook Fan Page, then choose Standard Admin or Master Admin from the drop down box. The admins you add will show up at the bottom of your Administrator Admin tab.


The difference between a Stand Admin and a Master Admin is that a Standard Admin can only edit content and add Sub-pages to existing tabs. A Master Admin can add new tabs to the fan page, add Sub-pages and edit content.  (The Master must also be set as a Page Admin via the Facebook Page Admin as well.)

As Facebook Fan Pages become even more critical assets for businesses to engage with their audiences, TabSite will continue the development of new tools and capabilities allowing TabSite users to have a simple way to expand their Facebook Fan Page.
