How to hide (not delete) a Business entry?

Hi

 

Is there a way to hide Business entries, direct or indirect*?

I don't want to delete them: don't know if I need them later again and it always needs it's time to publish them new.

 

*) I'd provoke even a "wanted error" if it pushes an entry to Status "disabled" until I correct it.

Hi Holger

Why would you want to 'hide' a business listing? If a business is not operating for a period of time (such as renovations) then simply use the special hours feature to mark them closed for that period.

Is there another reason for wanting to 'hide' a listing?

Thanks for your reply.
I want to get rid of them from search results for a special time periode. The businesses itself are still running - only the entries shouldn't appear, after I have 3 entries which appear when I search my name.
So no "hide"/"disabled"/"in maintenance"/... status availiable yet?

What a pity
Send it as feedback. If others do we'll have this function soon I hope.
Are a bit curious that it's not available yet.
Thanks for help anyway

Personally, I would like to hide my page for the moment because I am self-employed person who offers service at the clients' locations, and I have just topped out the number of clients I can serve at this time.  I don't want to worry about fielding prospective client inquiries that I can't fulfill.  Plus, I haven't had time to add the kind of content that would make my page vibrant--but the reason I haven't had time is that I'm too busy doing something even better--working!  However, if there should come a point in the future that I might want to acquire another new client or two, I'd like to be able to unhide my page again rather than make a new one all over from scratch. 

 

Besides, what about the time period in which a person is just beginning to put their page's content together?  It's embarrassing to have one's page visible to the entire world during the "construction" period.  Facebook has an "unpublish" feature for its business pages.  It just seems to make sense.
