Edit Details Via Local Pack / Finder

 

You are able to edit the same details via the local pack or local finder.

 

Edit Local Pack

 

Again, select : Suggest an Edit

 

Edit Local pack details

 

Note on Edits: As with all business page edits, if you make significant edits to the address it may require re-verification.

You are still able to suggest edits in Google Maps >>  however these are fed to Mapmaker for approval rather then direct to business page.

 

Edit Details in Google Maps

 

If you need to make other changes, it is recommended to change via the business page account.

This seems to be Google moving progressively away from managing business pages via the actual account, only time will tell.
