What is Google Places?

Google Places can be synced with your Stacks website to update your location and hours of operation.

Configure Google Places

To allow Google Places to synch with Stacks, you will need to have a Google Places API enabled as well as a Google Business listing. 

Google Places is a service provided by Google free of cost. Learn more about Google Places Usage Limits and Billing.

Note:

  • You will need to verify your Google Business account prior to using its API key. As this is done by mail, it's important to take that delay into account.
  • You are now able to use one (1) API key for both Google services, Google Places and Google Maps as long as they are both enabled in your Google cloud console.
  1. Navigate to the Integrations tile on your dashboard

  2. Open the Google Places tile

  3. Enter your Google Places API key in the appropriate fields below. 

4.Test the key: query a location with a known Google Business listing such as EBSCO

5. Click 'SAVE CONFIGURATION'
