Only this week did I have time to have a look at our branch listings in the new Google My Business dashboard (and My Business Locations /local/manage/#/list)
Except for a few hiccups with image imports, all seemed to have migrated rather well.
The only thing I am not really sure about is the bulk upload verification requests.
I completed the respective form once, which from my understanding would be sufficient to verify all the branches, however…
I received this email below, which made me think “all is good”:
Thanks for submitting the bulk upload verification form.
We’ve marked the submitted James Hargreaves Plumbing Depot locations as verified. Please make sure that you keep the information up to date. If there are changes that don’t comply with our location quality guidelines, the account may become unverified.
Verification should allow your locations to appear on Google Maps in 1-2 weeks. Until then, the locations will appear with the ‘Pending’ status message. Please also note that, due to technical reasons, some of your locations may not go live at the same time as the others.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Forum at https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/business
BUT, when I look at the Google My Business Locations dashboard I see the following:
Do I need to resubmit Verification Requests? I was under the impression that bulk verification would mean that all the branches would be verified in one swoop…
Many thanks in advance for your feedback,

When I dig a little deeper into the situation for these “Unverified” branches I get both a request for Verification, but also a graphic “Verified” icon… so which one is it?
Many thanks in advance for your input.

I wouldn’t swap systems. IE if you are doing bulk, I would stick in bulk and not concern yourself with messages from the regular dashboard.
Obviously the account is verified but for some reason Google doesn’t trust the data for some of the locations or ownership conflicts are causing some issues.
Let me see if I can get better answers.

Curious if you tried emailing support to see what their response would be?July 31, 2014 at 2:42 pm #4807Joel HeadleyModerator
Hmmm, it looks like a number of these listings were created individually and not by feed. Could that be the case?July 31, 2014 at 3:25 pm #4808Joel HeadleyModerator
I just verified on my end. You actually only have two listings that are in your bulk upload. The rest are individually verified. They appear in the /list interface, which makes it a bit confusing. If I were you, I’d delete the individually verified listings and add them to your bulk upload.August 18, 2014 at 3:14 am #4893
Quick follow-up message..
Actually, I ended up manually verifying the branches and all seems fine now. I wasn’t in a rush (because of other work commitments) and so a few weeks later all the branches received their pin codes.
Everything now shows as being Verified.
