  1. Suggest "Warehouse" and/or "Loading Dock" categories for Places in WME

    Lots of warehouses in my area, lots of truck drivers are dropping Places that would meet this criteria. They usually select the Parking Lot category, and i generally end up changing them to Factory/Industrial.

  2. [QOL] Have Closure End Date Auto Update to Not Be Earlier Than Start Date

    When setting a closure for the next day, for example, I have to update the start and end date even though the end date should update automatically to prevent an error in the data.

    Is it not possible to set an event to run after the Start field losses focus to update the End date field to update to match the Start date field if the end date is before the Start date?

  3. House numbers for villages with no street names

    There are many places where there are no street names - it's just "City name - number" as the address.

  4. Opening hours, by appointment only

    Looks useful to me to add the option 'By appointment only' to 'Opening hours' in WME. You still need to choose the days on which an appointment can be made. It is important that the telephone number is stated correctly in the data.

  5. Combined Red Light & Speed Cameras

    The UK now has a growing number of red light cameras that also double-up as speed cameras. These should be able to be captured and displayed/warned as having both functions to drivers.

  6. Road height restriction.

    To display road height restrictions for all tp yoe of vehicles. Some waze users does not select type of vehicle. At certain road, there are height restriction, if there is a notification when waze navigate trhough fastest routes it would be helpful for drivers.

  7. WME - Dynamic Speed Camera (Icon).

    Hi.

    It would be a nice touch to add a - Dynamic Speed Camera (Icon), so whatever the user inputs in the Speed Value Box, it will reflect the same on the Icon. I feel this would help new users who think every Speed Camera is (30) but in reality it can be something else.

    Thanks!

  8. Hazard (Speed ​​bump)

    In France (I don't know if other countries practice the same) we are faced with situations where speed bumps cover an entire intersection. Knowing that the current configuration only allows two-way signaling, I asked myself the question if we could not have the possibility of having the choice on a crossing and cross, a T crossing, a two-way crossing, A >B, B>A. Because if my deduction is correct today to cover such crossings we must put two Hazards so that the announcement is made from all directions of traffic.
    Thanks for reading

  9. Zoom in to selected map suggestion

    When we select a map suggestion in the Issue Tracker, the map is centered on the suggestion, but the zoom level isn't changed. The map should zoom in to the suggestion.

  10. Multiple sets of hours

    Add the capability for editors to add multiple sets of hours for an establishment. This feature would be especially beneficial for banks and pharmacies. At banks, ATMs are often open 24/7, while human tellers, consultants, notaries, and other banking personnel are not at banks 24/7. At pharmacies, the convenience store and the pharmacy itself mostly have different hours. Finally, there are some establishments with delivery hours and/or drive-thru hours that differ from the establishment's standard operating hours.

  11. Better history for place update

    Hey,

    in place edit history, it would be nice to have more details on PUR : the only status is accepted or rejected.
    Maybe it is not easy to tell what photo was refused or a refused change name, but it would be nice to know what was the updated fields (was it about adding or removing a photo, rename the venue).

  12. Remove Two-Way Segments

    Two-way segments are very rarely necessary and are very often overused by map editors to oversimplify maps. Even the smallest "two-way roads" have at least one lane dedicated to each of the two directions. Having each segment representing a single roadway will permit maps and navigation that are more intuitive to the users of the app, and perhaps help avoid the tendency of editors to try to combine separate roadways into one segment.

  13. 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.

  14. Enable Undo after Save

    It happened to me a couple of times. I deleted and element, clicked Save, and then understood it wasn't the element I meant to delete.

    It would be great to enable undo changes that have been just saved.

  15. Update Request Submission Time

    The submission time listed for URs SHOULD indicate the time the reporter clicks the report button in the app, NOT the time it is submitted/sent. The timestamp of sending is not as important as the timestamp when the button is pressed (i.e. for verifying Time Based TRs)

  16. Subway station elevation

    There should be a feature that would enable editors to include the elevation of a subway station as they can do with PLAs.

  17. Set GPS point color by age in WME

    Please set the color of GPS points in WME by age instead of direction, The direction is already indicated by the direction of the arrow. Editors need to know how old the tracks are to see changing traffic patterns.

  18. 100 gas, fuel station price list update suggestions

    Hello dear Waze Team,

    I am contacting you because I’d like to suggest some features to be added. As I am a gasoline car user who always fills her car with 100 octane gas, I’d like to see prices of that as well in the price list at fuel stations. I’d also add a menu for updating prices by seeing the info page of the station.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    All the best,

    Hanna

  19. Truck restrictions

    I know that in the past this option has been recommended and the staff has rejected it, but I want to approach this question of trucks from another perspective.
    Why not create a restriction for trucks in the permalinks as currently exists for taxis, motorcycles, electric cars etc ... and that in the application for users in the vehicle category, the option "truck" is also created. We as editors mark the permalinks with restrictions for these vehicles and the user who chooses this vehicle option in the application will have a more accurate navigation.

  20. Please integrate postal codes with actual addresses in Singapore

    I have a hard time syncing my new postal code with my address. The address shows the proper position on the map. But the postal code brings me to a different position. When I highlighted this issue, the Waze map editors said that they are not able to make the change, and that postal codes were out of their domain.

    Postal codes are the main way that people search for addresses. If the postal code points to the wrong area, the app is not accurate. If Waze is serious about using crowd sourced information to improve, why is linking up…
