Add an Owned Profile for Your Snapchat Account

This article is for the users who have an account role with the “Add Pages & Profiles” permission (that is, for Account Admins and the users who have a custom account role with the “Add Pages & Profiles” permission under the Pages & Profiles section; see Account Roles).

Add a Snapchat account that you own or manage as an owned (private) profile to your Emplifi account. Having a Snapchat account as an owned profile allows you to see the insights of the account directly from Emplifi.

Posting content to a Snapchat account from Emplifi is not available.

To know more about owned and public profiles, see Add a Profile as Owned (Private) or Public.

This article describes the steps you need to perform in a third-party product. The process and changes in the user interface in third-party products are subject to change beyond our control, and Emplifi therefore accepts no liability associated with them.

    (info) If it is the first time you are attempting to add a profile for a Snapchat account to Emplifi, you are asked to allow Emplifi to access all the relevant data required. Review the requested data permissions and allow Emplifi to access the data.

    Emplifi accesses the data from Snapchat, and the dialog shows the Snapchat account.


    (info) If no Snapchat account is shown, see “Troubleshooting” further in this article.

  6. Toggle the switch for the Snapchat Insights option to ON to enable access to the insights of the Snapchat account.

  7. (Optional) Perform the following actions:

    • Click the group icon to set up the visibility of the profile in the Emplifi account.
      By default, the profile is set to be visible only to you and Account Admins (for more information about visibility, see Set Up Visibility of a Profile).

    • Click the label icon to assign labels to the profile (for more information about the labels, see How to Set Up Labels).

  8. Click Connect profiles.
