  1. 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

  2. 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…

  3. UR User Preference Panel - Combine passes/permits into expendable list

    Since User Preferences have been introduced into User Reports, solving URs has become much easier. One drawback is that the list can be extremely long if a user has many passes or permits, forcing the input field well off the bottom of the screen. One example found recently has 722 passes, as shown in this video:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/15iVQMdq9muJoGqItdFZ26Ctx031hu2sY/view?usp=drive_link

    Our suggestion is that passes are combined into one initial entry - "added passes", and there is an option to select it, which opens up the list.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Invert PUR Filter by type

    With the latest release of WME, we can now filter place update requests (PURs) by type. There should be an option to invert the filter. By doing this, I can select one type of PUR and show everything except that type.

  7. Issue Tracker Option ~ Add ability to have Map Area and Managed Area at same time

    We need the ability to have the "Map area" option selected along with either the "Managed area" or "Specific location" option selected.

    Why you may ask?

    This just happened to me.

    I keep my settings as "Managed area" or "Specific location" so that I can work URs, PURs, etc anywhere any my managed area or State without being at a specific map area

    Someone contacts me by chat for assistance in a location that is not in my managed area or specific location (whichever I have set) and I help them out. Reporter is a happy camper.

    Since I don't…

  8. Show only active closures

    In the layers menu, under closures, there should be an "Only active" option. When this is enabled, only active closures will be shown in the WME. This would make the WME look "cleaner" and uncluttered.

  9. Enable closure duplication on expired closures

    It would be very convenient if you could duplicate an expired closure as you currently can with an active or planned one.

  10. Improve/change the error message

    Improve/change the error message when low level editors tries to delete the house number on streets with higher locks. Now we got "Error saving, try later" message. It gives, to editor, no idea of what the problem is, and the user may thinks that's a WME bug. By changing this message, it will give to editor and mentor/higher levels editor's more information to understand where the problem lies.

  11. Add map comments to the "All issues" section

    It would be great to have all map comments in one place, and the all issues sections seems perfect for this. Include some filters like comment type (point, area), comment expiration date, comment creator (me, other), etc.

  12. Keep me logged into the WME

    Would it be possible to keep me logged into the WME once i logged in, via cookies and cache. Currently i'm getting logged out of my session as soon as i close the tab. Even worse when i get a discord notification on my phone about a closure and i wanna close a road i need to login again there too each time and the UI and workflow is very cumbersome.

    In short would it be possible that once i'm logged into the WME on a browser to stay logged in until i log out, or do a cache clear…

  13. Show name of editor on expired closures

    The new status of real time closures in WME is good. It would even be better if we can see who the editor was who set the closure when the closure is expired; now this is not possible. That way you can liaise with the editor if a UR comes in relating to that closure.

  14. Automatically clear the street city field when its value is "None"

    Currently, when opening the street name editing panel, the input fields get populated with the string "None" (localized), which requires editor to delete the text manually before setting a new name.

    When the street has a "none" street or city name, these fields should be empty (or, at most, with a "none" placeholder that disappears when clicked).

    If the user does not change them, consider them as being "none".

  15. Accept and reject individual suggestions in PUR

    Problem summary:

    The workflow for place update requests (PUR) is clunky and confusing. We can reject or approve only - yet two or three of the five suggestions might be useful while the others not. After clicking on a PUR for the first time, it is also unclear what is new, changed or deleted.

    User story:

    I clicked on a PUR pending changes for an existing venue and this is what was displayed:

    https://i.imgur.com/CWTE6Jl.png

    • It is not apparent what the proposed changes are. I do not know if everything listed is new, changed (e.g. typo fixed) or a proposed deletion.

  16. Do not allow user selection on buttons

    Buttons in WME (UR, PUR, etc.) should not allow the user to select the text. There is no functional use for editors to be able to select this text and attempting to click can result in the text being selected instead of registering a click on the button

    CSS:
    user-select: none;

  17. Add a keyboard shortcut to toggle the Issues Layer

    The new issues layer is not linked with a keyboard shortcut to toggle it on/off, at it is the case for other layers like roads, place, closure,....

    This would really help, especially for koifish suggestion, so we can quickly toggle on/off the suggestion and see what's under it on the image, or even if there is not a already existing segment hidden by suggestion.

  18. Move RRC and Camera layers to hang under Permanent Hazards

    With the introduction of Permanent Hazards Railroad crossings and Cameras have been moved into the Permanent Hazard menu. It would now make (a lot of) sense to also apply this to the chart layers, to prevent people from wondering why railroad crossings or cameras are greyed out in the menu while they do have the permanent hazard layers checked on. It should be similar to how the Places layer has been restructured.

    Unless it will be merged into the hazards layer of course, then this is redundant.

  20. Editor visibility default state should be Visible (not invisible)

    Problem Description:
    I frequently see my status as invisible when logging into WME, even after I have previously explicitly set it to visible. The visibility appears to reset back to invisible after some time has elapsed, maybe a day or more, or perhaps it resets after session expiry. I am not certain exactly what criteria causes the visibility to reset back to invisible. I would much prefer to remain visible in WME without having to repeatedly check and manually set myself back to visible each time I authenticate or access WME.

    Requested Solution:
    Please adjust the default value or default…
