Google Account ID Field (May '21 Release)

If you’re a Yext and Google My Business power user, you’ll benefit from the new Google Account ID field. This field enables admins to configure their GMB syncs completely independently of Yext Managed Services.

The Yext team will typically populate this field on your behalf, however, if you manage your own location adds, you can fill out this field to enable the location to sync to its GMB account location. The safest way to do so is by applying a template in which the Google Account ID field is populated. In the rare situation that you move a location between GMB accounts, you should edit this field to match the new one. If the Yext team manages your location adds, you should not edit this field.
