Adding seasonal hours -- date range?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Our business has seasonal hours during the summer. However, I can't seem to find where I can enter those hours as a date range. For example, from May 21 to September 21, we are open until 10pm every day. Do I need to enter those times individually for each and every day within that range? Or do I have to change our regular business hours and then set a reminder for myself to change them back after the season?

Hi Brian

You've basically outlined the 2 choices available:
1. Add your extended hours as 'special hours' - but this will be painful since special hours can only be added day by day
2. Change your core hours to 10pm every day for that period - which can be done as a block - and then re-set them after 21 Sep, again as a block.

Hello,
we have the same issue and im sure many other businesses. I think adding a feature like that would benefit many people. Is it possible to open a ticket for this feature request? Im sure this is not top priority but definitely of a reasonable importance.
Thank you in advance!

Are you aware the existent feature of "special hours": https://support.google.com/business/answer/6303076?hl=en ?

 

any other feature request can send to the developers via the feedback option of GoogleMyBusiness:

The fact that you can't do this is ludicrous. Hey Google! Listen up! No-one wants to create 90 individual lines one by one.

I found the answer. You have to upload hours via Spreadsheet.
