  1. Notify if place is closed when starting a route

    Google Maps will notify you when you begin a route if the place you are going to is closed. Can this function be added to Waze?

  2. URL length limit – why?

    The WME URL field for Places is limited to 100 characters. I'm not really sure why!

    Most URLs will fit in this area, true. But some hotels have URLs longer than this. When I try to add one to a Place, it is truncated, so the URL does not work in Waze.

    A hotel in my area has this URL:

    https://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotel ... index.html

    WME truncates it to this when pasting into URL box:

    https://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotel ... ood-clearv

    To compare them:

    CODE: SELECT ALL
    https://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/louisiana/hampton-inn-and-suites-new-orleans-elmwood-clearview-parkway-area-MSYELHX/index.html

    https://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/louisiana/hampton-inn-and-suites-new-orleans-elmwood-clearv

    For a hotel in particular, websites can be difficult for searching for a particular location, and…

  3. Selecting a search result shouldn't reset the zoom level

    When using the WME search box to find a road, it would be really nice if WME could leave the current zoom level well alone rather than always resetting it to level 3.

    Even if it just defaulted back to level 4 that'd be an improvement, but jumping back out to 3 means we then always have to zoom back in at least one step if we want to be able to select a street segment. And even at L4, anyone looking to do some work on point places would then need to zoom in one step more before they…

  4. WME frontend should show backend errors

    Hi,
    when saving, if the backend fails, it returns a message. But often they are not localized, and in that case we get a generic
    "Please try again later" which is useless because in most case the problem will not solve and the only solution is to cancel all edits.
    Here is a list of messages that are not localized and need to be displayed (maybe not exactly in the same form, but at least do not tell the user to try again if it is impossible that it works.

    Invalid street 0 was set for venue ID -100

  5. ToolTip for LiveMap

    Would you please consider adding a tooltip for the livemap link on the bottom of WME?
    It is not obvious at all what the icon does when you hover over it.

    Maybe something like this would be useful when you hover of the icon ( see attached)

  6. Link points POI to an Area POI

    Hi guys,

    The idea is to link points POI to a Area POI.
    For example, linking stores in a Mall or linking a company office in a building.
    It's also to avoid this kind of editions : https://www.waze.com/editor?env=row&lon ... 157&zoom=6.
    I think this will help editors to determinate which stores or companies are present in a Mall/building and help user to use the right entry to go to shopping or working.
    It will be a plus if you can also link, a point POI entry on an Area POI entry.

  7. Show house numbers on smaller zoom

    Currently the layer of house numbers only works on the the zoom levels 7-10. Please enable it starting from zoom 5.

  8. More Specific Error Messages

    Specific error messages are very useful, and we can use more of them.

    Here are some recent cases I have run across where it would be helpful to have a more-specific error message

    RPP too far from identical HN (zoom out if necessary to highlight the HN location)
    RPP too far from recently-deleted HN; try again after HN update. (zoom out to highlight the former HN location)
    Improper restricted turn in JB (show and highlight the specific turn arrow which is the problem). Allow the turn and try again (https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=211&t=276336&p=1922955#p1922761)

  9. Junction Box Modal dialog does not appear in practice mode

    In practice mode, the modal dialog used to choose the routes through the Junction Box does not appear.

    It does appear when logged in.

    This is inconsistent. All the features of Junction Box should be visible in practice mode so editors can learn about junction box without risk of accidentally making changes.

  10. Improve Segment History Reporting of Turns

    Description: Currently when editors make most changes to a turn between two segments the segment history simply shows "Turn onto X road updated". It would be much more helpful if we could easily tell what was changed about that turn. Was is a turn instruction override (TIO)? A difficult turn? Time-based restrictions? There was a change in a value associated with the data model of that segment, so it's very much possible to have the segment history be more specific.

    In this image there are three entries for turn updates to the same turn, but other than the TIO there…

  11. Subscribe to segment

    It may be nice for us to be able to "subscribe" to a segment ID, not sure if it should be rank locked or not.

    Basically, add a check box on a segments panel to subscribe to changes of the segment.

    When subscribed to a segment, if a change is made to a segment the subscriber gets an email notification that their segment has had changes (and of course provide a PL)

    Among other possible uses, it could be used to get notification if someone makes a change to a segment that is part of the Toll Price feature.

  12. Speed Limit Update Requests (SLURs) to WME Production for NA

    Since the app changed to have the report incorrect or missing speed limit Update Requests away from the speedometer the number of garbage SLURs has dramatically reduced. Recommend that the SLURs be moved to WME Production vice staying in WME Beta.

  13. Sunrise/sunset vs absolute times for restrictions

    Some roads have driving restrictions based on the local sunrise/sunset times, which are difficult to map even somewhat accurately as a series of consecutive restrictions with absolute start/end times.

    Being able to set a single year-round restriction using a "sunrise" or "sunset" option to set the start/end times, and leaving it up to the routing server to determine what the actual start/end times are for each restriction based on the current date and coordinates of the restricted segments, could therefore be useful.

  14. Vitrual Lanes

    There are many places where Lanes go one or two junctions back (H junctions for example). The editor should allow to define lanes that are not limited to the turns at the end of this segment:
    Real example:
    We have 3 lanes. The left lane is loaded for 1 KM. In that 1 KM there are 4 junctions ( right turns allowed).

    It would be nice to be able to define 1 lane for Left turn, one for going Straight Ahead, and one for Straight Ahead or Right.And be able to do this for all 5 segments.

  15. Split Place

    After the succes of the Merge Places feature I would like to add a request to Split Places.

    There are instances where wazers add a photo to a place that is not related to that place, but something nearby. At this moment we don't have a choice but to reject the photo. I would like an opportunity to use it to create a new place.

  16. Vehicle restricted closures

    Now: the closures are for all vehicles.

    SUG: possibility of applying a closure for a certain type of vehicle and not for others, for example: closures only for taxis.

  17. New Place Address

    I'm not sure if it's a minor-bug or intended, but I ask you to take a look:

    Issue regarding Map Editor Beta and Production.

    :arrow: When you find a new place waiting for approval, if you click on the red arrow everything runs smooth, but if you feel the need to click on the yellow arrow to check what's that place is about before approving it (sometimes you can't tell just by the name title), notice it isn't possible to change the address... well maybe it's ok at this point before approving it.

  18. Improvements in segment selection for road closures

    Sometimes it's necessary to select multiple segments to perform a road closure either for MTE or for a conventional closure. After you have several segments selected, you accidentally select a node and all work is lost (the section disappears). I suggest making a modification that prevents the disappearance of the selection of these segments and notifies the editor that you selected a node and it will not be possible to make the respective closure (before or at the moment of trying to save). Obviously the idea is to give you the opportunity to remove the node from the selection and…

  19. [REQUEST] Thoughts on Live closure feature, seg vs node

    I brought this up Jan/2015
    I think It should be revisited, here is the original forum post link and quote:

    https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=211&t=125253#p1009107

    "some thoughts on Live closure implementation....Seg to Seg closure is great. But if you have a parade route (for instance) you can close an entire street for a mile (say west to east segs). Unfortunatly it has no affect on cross streets (say if you wanted to cross the closed road from north to south on a side street). So...Side streets have to be closed also if they cross your closed segment. Seems to me what's really needed is…

  20. Tag URs with "Not Following"

    I tried finding a post that described this problem but I could not find it, in case there is one, it can be merged to that thread.

    tl;dr Add a tag to URs when the user is not registered or not following a UR.

    Not long ago ronsek57 told me that users, who just opened the app and never registered, are able to send URs but they never receive any of our messages asking for more information. I tested that on three URs (IDs 11946180, 11946458, 11946459), I am not adding permalinks because they already disappeared from WME.

    I sent…
