'By Appointment' option for Business Hours

# 1

I need to add the option 'By appointment only' for this business listing for one of the days. Currently my only option is to mark it 'closed' which looks very unfriendly to our customers and doesn't let them know they do have the option of coming in on a Saturday.

I see this has been discussed before and noted by Google but the option still hasn't been added.


1. Parkinson & Bouskill Headstones

2. 1237 Cameron Road, Tauranga, NZ

3. 07 578 3611




Any help that can be given is greatly appreciated.

Hi @


You're right, this does seem to have been discussed in other threads.


One of the community managers in Feb 2016 mentioned:

"Thanks, all, for the feedback! I have sent this on to the product team. We really appreciate hearing from users!"


I guess there hasn't been any update since then :(


One of the other community members also commented:

"by appointment only" used to be an option several years ago. I'm skeptical it'll come back since it was obviously removed on purpose."


I do wonder if it was removed for a specific reason and if Google will bring it back?
