Do you need help updating temporary open hours? Here’s a quick guide for how to do this through PinMeTo:

Select a location in listings which you want to update

Scroll down to ”Special Open Hours”

Update the hours for the dates that you desire.

Click “Select locations” if you want to apply these hours to multiple locations:

Select the locations you want to apply the ”Special Open Hours” to

Click ”Add selection” and your locations will be added.

Click ”Update” and your locations will be updated with the special open hours


In order for it to work, you need to keep at least one day open in your regular hours. 

In order for it to work, from Google’s side, at least one day needs to have regular open hours – even though the special open hours will overwrite this

For instance, set Monday open 08:00 - 09:00, and then use the Special Open Hours to overwrite it. The Special Open Hours are what will be displayed:


Facebook does not support the Special Open Hours feature. Our recommendation is that you keep one day open with only 1 hour in your regular open hours, and, in addition to this, you write a local post on all your Facebook Local pages with information your customers need. When you’ve posted this information you can ”pin” it to the top of your FB-feed like this: 

By doing so the post will be more visible for your customers. We know it’s not a perfect solution, but unusual times call for unusual measures, and until another solution is created this is our recommendation.


If you delete your regular open hours, Google will say you’re open and Facebook will say ”No hours available.”

The above guide is the best way to make sure your customers get the correct information.
