Hi everyone!


Does anyone have any info as far as the newish "Planning" section for GMB. We have a health facility that we are seeing these on but theres no rhyme or reason to them. We are wondering how they are assigning these. Some also have "Accepting New Patients" and some dont.

What are the primary/secondary categories for the business?

This planning attributes sub-section is common for health related categories, the variations are likely due to differences in primary/secondary categories that are set.

Differences in location of the business(es) may also be why you're seeing different options per profile (Google tends to roll out different options for different areas).

On the public side, these attributes show only show mobile, under the about section (see attached screenshot). planning_attributes_mobile.jpeg )

We have planning options for a restaurant. Seems a bit odd. But not quite as odd as No Passport Photos for a vacation rental property company. :unsure:
