Integration with Facebook allows you to connect a company page to your BotHelp account. When a user writes a message, you receive his message in your account and can reply to it. The user will receive a response on Facebook Messenger.
Make sure messages are enabled on your page.
To give the BotHelp application access to a business page, you must be the page Administrator, but not an administrator in the business manager.
If you are an administrator in a business manager, ask another admin to connect the Facebook account to BotHelp, otherwise there may be problems connecting the application and the flow.
If you've used other apps before, go to community settings and uninstall them because they can conflict with the operation of the flow.

Administrate your community all the time
If you stop being an administrator of the FB page, then everything connected with the page stops working, because all requests to the FB API will be rejected by the FB. Therefore, all FB flows will stop working.
