  2. Loosing costumers

    Hi !
    "This idea was created based on the response received by contacting customer service. Therefore, the idea directly addresses what is said in the conversation. The topic deals with users of the country of Azerbaijan. And since there are approximately 5 editors for the country in question, it is obvious that this issue will not attract much attention. Because I haven't seen any of them make any suggestions or post on any topic here yet."

    • ... And yes, I have one more issue to talk to you about. So, is there another way for me to become a moderator…

  3. Déviations pour les créateurs local

    pouvez-vous rajouter une fonctionnalité pour les créateurs locaux, un signalement avec le fléchage de la déviation.
    Faire la déviation obligatoire lors de travaux.
    Cela me permettra de mettre en place la déviation qui ne fera pas perdre de temps aux utilisateurs qui s'engouffre dans les travaux et qu'ils sont bloqués.
    Merci par avance.

  4. Change Forum Sharing Option autofill

    When an editor uses the forum sharing options, new editors are consistently adding the wrong lock level to their request.

    For example, the current Unlock Request automatically fills in the following information:
    Hi Editors,

    I would like to be able to edit the following segment(s).
    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Permalink: https://waze.com/en-US/editor?env=usa&lat=29.63406&lon=-104.27920&zoom=5&segments=516527406
    Reason:
    Unlock to level:

    Thank you in advance,
    The "reason" and "unlock to level" kind of blend in.

    My suggestions would be to automatically fill in the current lock level of the selected objects and the rank of the editor making the request for the "unlock to…

  5. Speed Limit Pinned on Segments

    I'm wondering if speed limit pins can be placed on the segment exactly where it shows on the map using street view as a guide. This will make it easier to find speed limits when responding to speed limit UR. I'm thinking of this as more of a visual aid for editing. I would also like a toggle on and off option that can be added on the right map layer panel.

  6. Adjust Categories to cover Sports Clubs

    Some of the categories don't quite cover what editors might be looking for. For example, Game Club should be a Sports Club, and a Club should be like a nightclub or function room type place. Currently, there is no category that covers a local sports club/function room. they're often a vital community asset and are used for plenty of social functions by non-club members which often leads to "non-locals" having to try locate them

  8. Lines on sections of roads with roundabouts!

    We urgently need to implement the ability to add lanes on sections of roads with roundabouts!
    There are many sections of roads with roundabouts that use multi-lane and different traffic lanes.
    This functionality is severely lacking.

  10. 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!

  11. Numero de portas sem a necessidade de nome na rua.

  12. Last Edit

    Track last edit for self as editor in WME and have a link to go there.

    Sometimes WME gets stuck. Requires hard refresh. But if last edit was important and was not complete, where was it. I was too busy to capture a link.

    Would have to be a 2-phase commit. Capture the location for the editor. then attempt the edit save. Otherwise, If it crashes, the last edit would not get recorded.

    Please have a link to go back to last edit on WME load.

  13. Add More Culture / Entertainment Subcategories

    It would be nice to have more subcategories for Culter/Entertainment venues. A couple of examples would be Bowling Alley and Arcade. When I look at bowling alleys in Waze they are flagged as the the main category, but I feel having a subcategory for them would help with users locating them.

    I don't think this is too much to ask when we have subcategories for Race Track and Theme Park which is significantly fewer in number.

    A list of culture/entertainment subcategories that come to mind that would be helpful:

    • Bowling Alley
    • Arcade
    • Mini Golf (Putt-Putt)
    • Escape Room

  14. Reduce the number of URs handled by editors

    I was wondering if we should limit editors from answering new URs to 100 or 200. Every time I tried to look for any unanswered URs when I logged back into WME after overnight sleep, I always missed it by a few minutes or hours (in my area I usually keep an eye on) by another editor. It's also like one editor isn't giving other active editors a chance to do their own question to the new UR (that pops up), making them rage quit.

  15. Impossible for Level 1 to advance

    As a level 1 editor, you need to gain experience to learn how to properly apply edits to the map for the betterment of the community. But as a Level 1 editor, you essentially can't edit anything. I understand not allowing a novice editor to make changes and potentially break the map. I understand there could be malicious actors who could sabotage this platform. But as it stands now, this voluntary map editing feature will die.

    The amount of edits needed to move up levels is high. I'm fine with that IF edits are allowed. Sooner or later, the senior…

  16. Easier closure/construction reporting

    Add option under selection to report a closure on a segment as closed.

    After u-turns and some other turns the arrow doesn't show where the closure is to be able to report it. In order to drive the route to reach the closure is not always feasible as well.

    Right now under the map editor closing a road takes level 3 permissions, but would be helpful if as a level 1 editor that we could atleast select the segment and put notes in on where the closure is and the duration that is expected to then be applied by a…

  17. voice controll over waze

    Voice controll when waze is on and the voice controll is on as well.
    Just say "Waze danger", it will ask what kind of danger, you say on road it confirm you say after that car stop, or wheather, fog... etc...
    It recognise the item and ask to confirm, you say yes and you made a sign without to watch and manual input the danger.

  18. AED

    My suggestion would be to include the locations for AEDs (lay defibrillators). Because it is very helpful in an emergency.

  19. Segment restriction type that prompts user to confirm access (gates)

    Currently we create gates using PR segments. However, this rarely has the intended effect. Those with access (say a gated community) don't get a route through a gate this is most convenient or worse, if all entrances are gated, then restriction is meaningless other than to ensure it's not a through-way.

    I'm suggesting a segment restriction type that would generate a pop-up at start-state of a route asking if the user has access to a segment (gate) if that's the shortest route. Ideally, Waze would remember that for that user in the future. This could potentially be used for restricted…

  20. Use RTC history to create new RTC on the same segments

    It would be very convenient to be able to re-create a RTC based on the RTC history for one or more segments. This would also require being able to choose to select all segments that were included in the original RTC, as well as optionally proposing start / end times.

    Two use case examples:

    1) Recurring RTCs where the schedule is not known far in advance

    For example, there is nightly road construction on a given highway, but this may not repeat every night for various reasons. The actual closure is only published a few hours before, and so requires…
