*Note Legacy Google Places Accounts: It’s important that the Google+ page for the location was created before you attempt to add a manager. If we create a location in Google+ it will automatically create a location on Google.com/places. If your location was created on Google.com/places it will not be tied to a Google+ location and won’t be able to be shared via this method. In that case we will need to re-create the location on Google+. At this point most businesses have moved over to Google+ / Google My Business but we still find some older account that need to be forced over.
