Use your list view

Summary: List view is designed for chains with many locations. It’s the best view in Google My Business for managing listings in bulk. From list view, you can view all of your locations and perform actions like confirm or close locations in bulk.

List view is the easiest way to manage listings in bulk. You can also use map view to see your locations at a glance.

Your dashboard

At the top of your dashboard, you'll see three cards:

  • “Account summary” shows a breakdown of the status of your listings.
  • “To-do” highlights listing errors for you to address.
  • “Confirm holiday hours” reminds you of upcoming holidays.

Below those three cards, you'll see a dropdown menu with the following options (if applicable), which let you filter your locations by different states so that you can take action on them:

  • Formatting errors
  • Duplicate store codes
  • Duplicate addresses
  • Disabled
  • Access needed
  • Duplicate locations
  • Google updates
  • Missing store codes
  • Pending review
