@JoyHawkins . Hi Joy if you have a moment i have a rather complex GMB question.

If you take the scenario of a company having 100 GMB listings worldwide and each location listing is managed by a different person. Is there a shortcut to managing each listing without having to email the person in charge of the listing to request access (become the manager) to the GMB listing? Many thanks

Yeah if you look here it shows you how to request bulk verification:

Uploading a spreadsheet
does not automatically send a request for verification. Instead, follow the steps below to request verification.

To submit your locations for bulk verification:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business.
  2. Click Get verified next to one of your locations.
  3. Click Chain.
  4. Fill out the verification form completely and accurately.
    • Business Name: If this the business owned and operated by a parent company, please include that information here as well as the name of the business you are verifying.
    • Business Countries / Regions: List the countries / regions for the business that you’ll manage in your account. For example, if you manage your business locations in the US and Canada but another user is managing locations in France and Germany, we understand that these two accounts are separate and distinct sets of locations.
    • Contact Name: If multiple people will be actively managing this account, please provide all names here. For example, John Smith (marketing) & Jane Smith (operations).
    • Contact Phone: This is the phone number we may use to contact you to clarify any information needed to verify your account.
    • Business manager email: The email address of someone at the business who can verify that you’re an authorized representative.
    • Google Account Manager Email: List the name or email address of any Google contact you have been working with. It is important for consistency and continuity across Google products to keep your Account Manager aware of your account standing as this may have an impact on other Google products, including Offers and Google Ads.
  5. Once you submit the verification request form, it may take up to a week for it to be processed. We will review your request to ensure your account complies with the quality guidelines and verify your authority to represent the business. We will contact you by email if we find any questions or problems, and will let you know once your account is bulk verified.
