Googly My Business Data Sync Functionality

When using the Google My Business Data Sync, will the tool create duplicate entities for the ones that are already within Yext, or does it only add new new entities for listings that are in GMB but not within Yext?

Is there a mechanism in place where this checks Yext for an existing entity before creating a new one? If so, is this based off of store ID or NAP information?

Hey @Ashna_Sikand!

This app matches the Google Field “storeCode” to the Yext entity ID. If you use this app to try and pull in an entity with an storeCode that matches an existing entity’s ID, the app will overwrite the existing entity with the new GMB information.

Hope this helps!
