I'm getting notices that my Post on GMB is about to expire. Where is the setting for an expiration date? How can I extend the post for 30 days?

Thanks @DH Pace M, @Helmut Geissler.

 

Posts enable merchants to share timely, relevant updates right on Google Search and Maps. They're shown on the default view for the first 7 days (or when the event date the post referenced has passed), and beyond that in their historical view under the Posts tab on mobile. 
 
Right now, editing a post will not change the creation date.

actually you can't. Post are  by default valid and shown 7 days only

I'm just testing little bit  (just editing an posting after I got the expiring note in order to check it will make the post showing further (for one more week I hope)

I beieive knowing more  in two days.

Hello @Amir F,

 

Do you know if adding posts to locations will be available through the GMB API any time soon? I realize that v3.3 was release in late April. Didn't know if this new feature would be available for systematic updates rather than manual one-by-one submissions. Appreciate any insight here.

If I enter a Post as an Event, and enter the duration (start date/time and end date/time) will the Post activated/deactivate based on the duration I entered?  Thank you Amir.

Thanks @Helmut ... but does the start date determine when the post will be activated?  I just need confirmation that the dates I enter activate/deactivate the post.  Thanks much.

I tested again, entered tomorrow (Thurs) as the start date and Friday as the end date.  Published immediately instead of a scheduled start date tomorrow (Thurs).  It sure would be handy to schedule posts but it is what it is for now.
