  1. Time based speed limits

    Speed limits are not always a fixed ones. For example , roads around the schools have a speed limit of 30 kmph during the morning and evening hours. Whereas this limit is not valid for Sundays and during the rest of hours in a day.

  2. Internal editor Notes on User Reports

    Give editors the ability to enter Notes onto User Reports without these going to the reporters themselves.

    This will allow us to leave messages for other map editors without the reporter being notified, for example, Please leave open - due to a Waze developer investigation, Please leave open for a pending site survey, etc.

    It may also give us the ability to for to use for an internal conversation about the report that the reporter doesn't need to know about.

    Yes, I know we have Map Comments, but having the ability to do this directly on the report would make…

  3. BUS/Motorcycle Lane

    Add the option to mark a lane as a BUS lane.

    If we have 3 lanes -> Turn left | Front | BUS

    We cannot give exact information to the user, because we can only show 2 lanes, because we cannot display the BUS to not mislead the driver.

    In Portugal, motorcycles can ride on the BUS lane, so it also helped motorbike drivers a lot

  4. A true support for bilingual countries

    I noticed that Waze doesn't approach bilingual countries just like GMM does.
    For example, in GMM, we can write multiple names for the same road in 2 different languages and based on the user's current phone language chosen, the map changes accordingly.
    Unfortunately that doesn't happen in Waze, we are stuck in 1 language only, even if we add "Alternative" name.

    Here in Kuwait, we use both Arabic and English (Even street signs are written in both Arabic and English) , in Google Maps we are having no problems since most of the roads in the map are written in…

  5. Road Closures History

    For a segment, it can be useful to have the history of closures, with start and ending, especially the most recent ones.

    This could help in the management of some UR (a closed segment the previous days helps to think that the segment is still closed).

  6. Place Hours: Sunrise to Sunset

    When adding Places, especially outdoor places (such as parks, playgrounds, beaches, etc), there are often posted hours saying the Place is open only sunrise to sunset, or conversely that the Place is closed sunset to sunrise. Unfortunately, the existing Place hours interface doesn't allow for these kinds of hours, only HH:mm times. As sunrise and sunset times change constantly, and in some places drastically due to orbital motion of the earth and time changes due to daylight savings times, it is impractical to estimate open/closing times using HH:mm formats.

    It would be beneficial to both app users and map editors…

  7. Manage closures in the Issue Tracker menu

    Live closures are one of the most important contributions that editors can make to the Waze map
    The functionality of viewing past closures on the map has recently been added, which adds complexity to the view.
    This suggestion involves managing closures from the Issue Tracker, allowing you to filter those that have been completed, those that are about to expire, or those within a period of time; or by zones in the same way as the UR, PUR or MP
    I guess this sug includes this one: https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-map-editor-suggestions/suggestions/47514620-show-only-active-closures and this one https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-map-editor-suggestions/suggestions/45584869-move-closures-history-to-the-closures-tab

  8. Ability to edit PUR photos to blur items

    Very often we have to reject a PUR photo when it contains either identifiable people or licence plates. If we had a simple tool in WME that would allow us to blur those details then those pictures could be used. Current situation is quite unbearable since we have to reject way over 50% of PUR photos because of aformentioned reasons. It also affects negatively on user's eagerness to take photos if the ones they've taken before do not end up to use and we currently cannot even tell why those have been rejected.

  9. Put the House number field before the Street field

    In some countries, House number needs to be before Street. Maybe this can be customisable by country? If not, I believe it's more logical to have House number first (smaller to larger).

  10. Improve RPP editing when it conflicts with HN layer

    When adding or editing RPP, if there is a conflict with the HN layer (i.e. too far), then the WME issues an error that prevents you from saving your edit. Thus, you cannot add or update this RPP.

    To resolve the issue you need to perform the following steps:
    1. Update/Remove the address in HN layer
    2. Wait for next (successful) map build
    3. Add the RPP

    This is an annoying procedure that should and can be avoided.

    The issue can be handled in one of the following ways:
    1. Verify the RPP against the most updated data either in…

  11. Connect an Advertising Pin to its Place on the WME

    Very often it happens that advertising pins are not placed in the correct place on the map, which leads to routing errors. It would be very useful to be able to link these Pins to the corresponding Place entered by the editors in the correct place in the WME, so that the routing to these destinations works correctly. (as we already do for the link to Places on Google Maps).

    Hey!

    Thank you for this great suggestion.

    We currently have an internal process in place to address this issue, and therefore won’t be developed as a feature in the WME.

    If you encounter any issue with advertised location. Please let your coordinators know about it, and they will inform the SCM, so we will be able to check this.

    Best,
    Hezi

  12. Add general destination information to URs

    URs have been improved by adding more information in WME 2.206, and it would be nice to continue to add information that doesn't jeopardize the privacy of the reporter.

    My idea would be to add information on how the stop point of a user's route was obtained - whether it be a house number, house number interpolation, RPP, Google address, Waze place, Google place, etc. Specifics on the geographic location wouldn't be needed, it would just be very beneficial to know how the stop point was chosen. We get a lot of URs complaining about navigation ending at the wrong…

  13. Make the UR Issues Tracker a Tracker and not a Filter

    Currently the Issues Tracker is not a tracker, but rather a filter because it hides other URs (issues) on the map.

    Ad an option not to hide URs on the map and display the default view (default setting in tracker)... so yes, we need to have some default options (that each user can change)... and when this option not to hide URs on the map to display the default view (including URs).

    For example:
    I always leave everything to see on my map - my default.
    When searching for new URs or looking for URs with answers from reporters, I…

  14. External Providers Search Displays Too Little Information

    The + Add linked Google place functionality on venues is incredibly difficult to use. When you search, the Waze-prioritized white space leaves almost no room for the search results to actually contain usable data. As it is now, I often have to guess as to which place it might be and often have to repeat the process making editing places very inefficient. Please expand the information displayed here so that this functionality is actually useful to finding and linking Google places. The whole name of a place should appear along with a complete address.

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion!


    At the moment, when you hover over a place, it shows its complete address. Is this something that solves the original issue you mentioned?


    If not, we would love to hear from you on how it can be improved.


    Thank you!

  15. Allow forcing a closure to expire (instead of deleting the closure)

    The WME shows now the status of all recently finished and all active closures. A deleted closure will not be visible anymore.
    For that reason, we prefer to "finish" closures instead of deleting them.
    It would be nice to have an option in the context menu of closures, to make the closure expire, by setting its end moment to now.

  16. Allow 3 choices for PURs that report closed places. 1) Ignore; 2) edit place 3) delete place

    Currently we can only ignore a PUR that reports a place closed or delete the closed place. We have no other choices available. Often, we need to make changes in operating hours or make other changes but NOT delete the place. If we ignore the PUR, it counts against the reporter. We need a third choice that gives the reporter credit for the report but allows us to keep the place and make appropriate changes to it.

  17. Addition of a road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road

    It is suggested to add one more road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road. This type will be used for example when it is a very steep or winding or bumpy road, or a road on the edge of an abyss.
    The time it takes to pass the road in such cases is not the only parameter that counts.
    It is suggested that the "penalty" for passing such a road will be proportional to its length. For example 1 minute for every 100m.

  18. Close a place for a fixed period

    Sometimes I receive UR for places closed for works (construction site, temporary closure).
    It would be nice for editor to be able to close a place for a fixed period, as you can close a road.

    I had the case on 2 gas stations under construction closed for several months. A "temporarily closed" button or closing dates with automatic reopening would be great!

  19. Prompt user to save Lane changes if deselecting segment

    After editing Lanes, it's far too easy to lose the changes by accidentally deselecting the selected segment you are editing if you don't apply the changes beforehand.

    This suggestion is to recognise that changes have been made in Lanes (or road width), and prompt the user to apply or cancel the changes if they deselect the segment they are editing.

  20. Move Previous Build Button

    The small bar with tile build information moves and sometimes covers elements as different parts of WME are accessed. With the exception of my phone in landscape orientation, there seems to be an excessive amount of extra space on the tile bar. My suggestion is to move it to the tile bar on the left, near the settings button.
