Problem trying to add a second business location

Hi there,


1. Full business name: BE-IT Resourcing

2. Current business address: 4 Queen St, Edinburgh, GB

3. Current business telephone number: 0131 344 4778

4. Google+ URL:


I am trying to create a new listing, but as it auto-suggests the same business name, all information defaults to that location in Edinburgh. 


I therefore tried to over-write this with the new information for the second office, only to find out when I hit save that it said the business already exists. 


That's technically correct - but its a new location of that business that needs to be added!

Hi @Douglas S


It may be easier from your Dashboard.


Log into your Dashboard >>

Select the big + button


Then the Add Location button

Now you will need to add the business details, similar to before.

When you type in the business name ( it will show your one in existence )  do not select this, then you should be fine filling in the new address and tel number.
