User Experience Walkthrough 

NEW: Google My Business Functionality.

The new Google My Business feature enables operators to link their Google My Business account (or create one if they don't have one) to their ATDW listing, allowing all future updates to the ATDW listing in the applicable fields to sync over to Google. This integration also allows the operator to view some valuable Google generated statistics for their listing in a new dashboard under the 'Stats' tab.

Where to find the Google My Business integration.

The new Google My Business integration can be found by operators in three locations. Prompted after submitting their listing for updates, in the Stats section and in the Account section.

Adding a new Google My Business listing through ATDW. 

If a business does not have a Google My Business listing for a new product offering, they can create one through the ATDW Online Platform. Once an ATDW listing is created for the product offering, navigate to the Stats section of ATDW-Online. Select the relevant listing from the menu and select the Google My Business from the dropdown list. 

On selecting the account, a Google My Business module will open with the business's current Google My Business listings displaying. The business' product offering will display in the Google My Business module with applicable fields from the corresponding ATDW listing populated into the new Google My Business listing.   

Updating a Google My Business listing through ATDW. 

Once a Google My Business listing is connected to a live ATDW listing, the relevant fields will be synced once the Quality Assurance (QA) process approves the ATDW listing changes. For new ATDW listings, the sync for analytics access will occur when the Google My Business listing is created/connected which can be prior to QA approval, and updates to the information fields synced upon approval.
