We've recently updated the Add-on to include more help in the User Manual.

Common Errors

Postamatic errors typically fall into a few different buckets:

Postamatic won't pull in my Google My Business Locations 

This error is typically caused by data quality issues regarding one or more of your Google My Business locations. The usual cuplrits are locations that are marked as suspended, duplicate or unverified inside Google My Business. The solution is to fix the locations with the help of Google My Business support and / or to remove the location from your Google My Business account.

Postamatic won't publish my post and is telling me that the problem lies with the image I added in column G.

This error is typically caused by the image being hosted on a complex CDN that Google's server can't access. The solution is to host the image on another server.

I tried Posting and nothing happened.

Postamatic publishes posts that have today's date and skips all the rest. To check this, look at the date in Column A. If the date is in the past or future, the post will not be published. The solution is to update the post to today's date and try again.

Hey, great Add-On and thanks a lot for offering it for free. I actually have the problem that if I want to turn on the automatic posts, it says "Cannot convert NaN to (class)." If i publish post manually, it unfortunately does not do anything. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

The tool is not listings locations for my GMB listings. I have ran through the set up process as instructed. I also have the Q&A tool and that is only working for some of my grouped GMB listings.

Thanks for being soo dedicated to make this tool. The new version works without any problems. I used it for posting and a few Google My Business post and it did already did save me some time. But it will be a huge timesaver when I use it for all my clients. Especially the ones that have 10+ locations. So thanks a lot!

I don't see the account selector option in CONFIG - cell a3. Only the post schedule time so it doesn't work unfortunately, I had high hopes! Edit: Got it working on another account. Think it was API related. Check in Console

I love postamatic, it is the tool i use to post on mi customers' GMB lists: simple and fast. I schedule in advance every post once a month and I forget about it until the next month. At first I had some problems trying to publish a post, but after contacting the developer we saw that there was an error with the conditional formatting and they fixed it in a matter of minutes. And now everything is perfect. I highly recommend it!!!
