Add and remove owners and managers of individual bulk locations


To add or remove owners and managers for multiple locations, follow these steps to transfer the locations to a business account. The steps below describe how to add a manager to a single location.

View owners and managers of individual locations

To view owners and managers of individual locations:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business
  2. Click the three dash menu icon  in the top left corner of your screen. 
  3. Click Manage users 

This page displays all the active owners and managers as well as people who have been invited to become owners or managers. When an invitation is accepted, all of the owners and managers of the location will be notified via email. All owners and managers can view the names and email addresses listed on this page.

Note: Only an owner can add or remove managers for a location, but any user can remove himself or herself from a location. Primary owners must first transfer primary ownership to another user before removing themselves from a location.

Add owners or managers

To add an owner or manager to a location:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business
  2. Click the location you'd like to manage.
  3. Click Manage users .
  4. Enter the name or email address of the user you’d like to add, then click the arrow directly below this field. 
  5. Select the new user’s role from the dropdown menu that appears. You can add them as an owner, manager, or communications manager. 
  6. Click Invite.

You can cancel pending invitations by clicking the X in the row with the invitation you want to remove.

Important: You may receive email communications from owners or managers requesting to be added. If you do not wish to add owners or managers, please reply to these email requests to let them know how to best coordinate updates to business information.

Remove owners or managers

To remove an owner or manager, including yourself:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business.
  2. Click the location you'd like to manage.
  3. Click Manage users .
  4. Click the X associated with the person you'd like to remove.

When an owner or manager is removed, they will be notified via email.

When you remove an owner or manager, they’ll no longer be able to act as the location, or take any kind of administrative actions. However, all of that user's past actions will remain intact.

You can also remove a location from your account.
