Ability to order favorites locations
Every time I add a location to my favorites, it pushes my old ones down. I want the ability to choose to mostly used favorites to show on the top.
Why can’t I rearrange my favorites the way I want them listed? I have an iphoneXR if that matters. Thanks
Enhance Waze app to remember the order that the user puts the Favorites in. It is so frustrating that they do not stay in that order. Programing can’t be that hard to do. Users have been asking for this for at least 6 years.

I'm using Android and am able to change the order of my Favorites (I can't automatically sort them alphabetically) but I can save then in any order I like...
I'm not sure if this will help some of you but try the following:
View your Favorites, click on the "Edit" button at the top right, use the burger icons to the right of each favouret name to move them in any order you like then click 'done'..
This allows me to save the faviourets list in the order I like... It's not automatic but works for me and hope it might help some of you as well...
Reminder to Waze owners Google. Its the 21st century and favourites are not in alphabetical order.

Yes, absolutely please add this...I beg of you! We beg of you!
For God's sake, please enhance Waze to "remember" the order that the user imposed on the Favorites list. If you would simply do that, I could easily move new favorites to where I want them in the list when I add them, if only they would stay put!!!
Some users have suggested more expansive list management functionality, like being able, on demand, to sort favorites by different attributes like name, distance, date added or date last used. I understand that this is a more extensive enhancement request requiring the development of many more lines of code to implement.
If cost is an issue, maybe address this request it in 2 phases. Do my proposal first, because it would require much less of a programming effort, then leverage your developer's improved familiarity with the software to implement the flexible sort functionality in a subsequent update.
Thanks for your attention.

Give us a way to sort destinations by name or distance or by how frequently we go there.
It is a shame that such a good navigation app is lacking of such a basic feature.

Spent numerous times sorting Favourites then later the Sort Order goes way out of wack!
Waze may save time getting me to a location, but it wastes my time trying to figure out a Favourite location after it’s random resorting error.
Almost 4 years of asking
How is the ability to sort alphabetically still not implemented?
The same thing occurs with iOS, please allow the favorites to stay sorted, even after adding a new favorite.
It would also be great if you add the feature to sort alphabetically (or as ChrisC suggests even also by date (Recent) or Distance).
Would be good to be able choose order - "Alphabetical" or "Recent" or "Distance" and have those 3 buttons displayed to make it easy to change quickly i.e. without having to go into settings
Is it me or Waze is ignoring our request about sorting the favorites? It's really annoying that we spend time to sort through our favorites and once an update comes out, the order gets scrambled.

I'd like waze to have a user-defined front page with say 10 (or adjustable) tiles of destinations.
I'd suggest also being able to manually or automatically group locations by general area. e.g. if I'm driving from SF to Palo Alto, I probably don't care if I'm going to a specific address so much as deciding between 101 and 280 and when/if to take 380 ... Waze could quickly say "take 380" and then "want to get on 101 or 280? 280 is less than 3 minutes quicker to 380 right now) etc.
In this way the favorites becomes more like a guided, interactive navigation.
Does anyone have one brain anymore
