With the Geolocation extension (using the Google Maps API), is it possible to search by business name? I see we are required to connect to the Places API, but searching by business name doesn't give me any results.
Also, I would like to be able to automatically set the Post Title to the business name, pull in the business phone number, website and business hours. Seems like this should be very doable with the API.

There is no field phone number, website, hours ... of the business to populated so it's not possible to do that. You can get the details of fields here https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/meta-box-geolocation/#other-fields
It would be really great if you can add the ability to pull in the phone number, website, hours etc. because we are already using the Places API, and all that info is readily available in the api response.
Also, we need to also be able to search by Place Name. E.g. "McDonalds Brooklyn NY". Currently that gives 0 results. Can we please get an update for the GeoLocation extension that can 1. search by place name and 2. return Places API info like phone number, website, hours, etc...?
