Thanks in advance

To the best of my knowledge those posts are only valid for 7 days, and then after that they are removed and as far as I am aware they cannot be altered to be longer.

Hi,

 

A couple of week ago, there was a feature on Google My Business Post where I can customise the start and end date of the post. I want to upload a new post today, however that feature is no longer there. Did you (Google) change it or did you move that feature somewhere else?

 

Also, I've posted this morning and I couldn't see my post attached to the GMB right side. Is there a delay on the post now? Two weeks, my post appeared instantly.

The posts last for 7 days unless you set the post as an event, that is how you get the date range @Good P

If I create a Post and enter it as an Event, with duration start date/time and end date/time then it will activate/deactivate based on the duration?  Or is the entered duration solely for display purposes only?

Carolyn, if you were to create an event, after you submit it, it will be displayed, and run until the event official ends.

I will test again, I think it publishes right away when I select Publish, regardless of the event duration I put in the start/end fields.
