Bug when claiming a service area business?

Oct 25, 2013
I just saw a post on the GMB forum I thought was interesting.

Not really sure where the best place to report this would be, but lately I've noticed that businesses with hidden addresses are no longer showing up in searches made within the GMB dashboard (at https://business.google.com/add)

What's more, I found that if a new page is created, it doesn't even detect the original business listing when you go to send out a postcard.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is it being looked at?
I tested a half a dozen businesses in different industries and cities, and sure enough... both claimed and unclaimed listings don't pop up there. That bug's a good way to end up with duplicate listings. Anyone else noticed this?
