  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Update gas prices where Waze venue is linked to GM place via external provider

    Idea by reivaxX162.

    Around the globe, Google Maps has already rolled out gas station prices. Many gas stations mapped in Waze are linked to GM via the external provider setting. Waze could automatically update the Waze gas prices where it is linked via the external provider. This would allow automatic price updates globally with little ease, and leverage the work GM has already done.

  7. Enable merging residential places

    Today we cannot directly merge two residential places (or merge a residential place into a public one). There is a workaround: convert residential places to public ones, save them, merge, then convert back to residential if needed. Why not allow merging the direct way?

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. copy/paste for turn closures / RTC on turns

    new turn closures feature in WME:
    We need a copy/paste feature for turn closures

    If you have to setup more than one turn closure, you have to enter description, start/stop date, start/stop time and MTE every single time.
    On a closed segment next to a T junction you have to set 4 turn closures, on a + junction 6 times.

    Why is it better to close e.g. 4 turns than the segment?
    If the segment is closed Waze will route you the node that is closer to your destination. Maybe this is the closed junction you don't wanna go through.…

  12. New Permanent hazard: Check-point

    In many countries, fixed check-points are installed on the road. It could be done by Police, Customs, Tax services, Weight check... and even borders.

    It would be great to have those marqued on the map as permanent Hazard " Check point". It has basically the same effect of a toll booth: You often need to stop there, or a least drive through at a very reduced speed.

    This would be a great safety enhancement for both drivers and those manning those check points.

  13. Refer to turn closure from adjoining segment's closure list

    RTC on turns are only visible in the "edit turn" infobox and with a small icon on the node. It would be great if the closure list of adjoining segments would contain a referral to the existence of this turn closure (possibly with a shortcut to edit this turn / turn closure). Could be as simple as "1 turn closure active" or something like that.

  14. 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.

  15. 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".

  16. 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.

  17. 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;

  18. 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…

  19. Login: username error x design flaws

    A novice user approached me saying they tried to log into WME, but their password wasn't working.
    They said they reset the password several times, but nothing worked...

    They sent me a screenshot. See if you guys can figure out the problem.

    https://i.imgur.com/JwfFoRz.jpeg

    Reasons to blame the user:

    1) As soon as the user accesses the page, the phrase "Enter your username and password" appears.

    2) As soon as the user accesses the page, the placeholder "Username" appears in the text entry field.

    However, the user entered their email in place of the username. It's the user's fault!

    Reasons to…

  20. Add a new UR Issue filter "Last comment by" - "Not Me"

    Please add a new UR filter in the "Last comment by" drop-down - called "Not me".

    In conjunction with the "Comment by me" filter, this will then allow me to see all URs that I have commented on in the past, but I wasn't the last person to reply. This will include the reporter and other editors.

    Currently, if I select Reporter, I cannot see URs that other editors have last commented on. If I select All, I will see them, but also all of my reports that I was the last commenter on.
