  1. Map Comments

    In Map Comments there is an expiration to remove the MC. I would really like to see a notification or email for a known date that would happen in the future, for instance a new business opening or visa versa, construction that is going to happen, etc. Many editors have just had to add to an external calendar event to get a reminder

  2. WME Road Types

    The current classification of roads on the WME follows the road types in the USA (Freeway, Major and Minor Highways and other road types).
    In Europe, but I think also in other parts of the world, the classification of roads is very different. This creates problems with editing roads, as it is difficult to adapt the WME type to the real situation.
    It is necessary to revise the road classification of the WME according to the real classification of each country so that each country can edit the map in a correct and more real way.

  3. Display Satellite Imagery Year

    Display the year of the satellite imagery currently displayed on-screen/ like you can do in Google Earth and what is already have available to editors in WME street view. This lets us know if imagery is out of date when diagnosing URs. Much like Google Earth, this could be restricted to only fairly close zoom levels, which is where we would need it most anyway.

  4. Directly edit water layer

    The water layer should be editable.

    The water layer import is outdated and frequently lakes and ponds are drawn where roads and houses now exist.

    We can add hacks to WME to suppress the display of these water features in the Waze app but this is not ideal.

  5. Allow choice in HN street name

    Hi

    Certain streets have a different name or city depending of side.
    It would be great to allow, when adding HNs, editors to specify what name we want to assigne to it when alternate bloc is filled.

    Thanks

  6. Manual input for zoom level

    With all the new zoom levels being planned, clicking the +/- to go up/down in zoom gets very tiring. This suggestion is to add a "Manual" number input field between the + and - to

    a) display the zoom level (instead of using a tooltip) - disadvantage of tooltip is you have to hover your cursor over the zoom control

    b) allow you to manually input the number you want the zoom to jump to. For example, you are at zoom level 20. You want to get to zoom level 12. Instead of clicking - 8 times, you type "12"…

  7. receive UR's notifications on mobile for new issues

    I mean we're not familiar what users report about unless we open WME to track reports.
    sometimes the problem could be solved by chatting then editors can start apply what needed.
    i don't need to set in front of computer to chat with users and maybe there r not going to respond that time so make it easy for us to receive first notification if users report on a new issue on our mobile, then usually as you know we can chat with them in our phones.

    Note: as a editor i want to know what is going on with…

  8. Ability to reorder or select primary picture

    Allow the editor to select the primary picture shown in the app that best represents the location for the driver. Another option is to allow drag and drop ordering of all the pictures available in order of precedence.

  9. Show Entry Point Name changes in POI history and PUR

    I noticed that Changes to the name of Entry Points of places won't show up in the POI history, it simply says "Updated Entry Points".

    This also affects PURs, since you don't know what the Wazer/Editor is suggesting until you accept it.
    I reckon those requests mostly get declined since there's no visible change.

    My suggestion is to add those name changes to the history and PURs.

  10. Disable lane guidance on some intersections

    It would be great to disable lane guidance on some intersections, so the user will not view the next lane guidance until he cross the intersection.

  11. Make shields bigger in WME side panel

    The little shields under the street name texts box are small and hard to see. Would be nice to have them bigger

  12. Vehicle stopped on right shoulder/left shoulder

    Waze currently tells you if there is a vehicle stopped on the shoulder, but does not have the option to select right shoulder or left shoulder. I've come across vehicles stopped on a narrow left shoulder twice in the last month after expecting to find them on the more common right shoulder. It would add greatly to safety if you knew on which side of the road a vehicle was stopped.

  13. Feet to Yards please!

    Please give us the option to select Yards (or metres) instead of Feet for distances in the UK. We have been brought up on using yards for distances under a mile (but we are able to use metres as they are similar). Feet as a measure is rarely used in the UK now.

  17. Fill place data with linked Google place data if those are blank in WME

    I often create a place and link Google place to it first to see/verify the address etc. Feels like very dumb double work when at least the name/city/address is in that linked Google place already, it would be very nice if WME could pull those from that entry when linking it and autofill those IF the corresponding fields are empty in place properties. And of course those must remain editable after that also.

  18. Differentiate between area map comments and point comments

    It would be great if it would be made possible to select to only see point map comments and/or area map comments.

    Area map comments are quite intrusive, leading to a lot of editors switching off the comment layer. As a result they sometimes miss useful information and make unnecessary edits.

    If you can choose to only see one type of comment, that would be very helpful.

  19. New WME Layer - Submitted Imagery

    Google-provided aerial imagery is very outdated in places, being at least 6 years old in the area I live. Even in more recent areas, there are new developments and intersections which have been built since. I suggest a way for experienced (lvl 3+?) editors to submit personal drone shots or publicly-available renderings of new developments to be added to a new layer on the map editor. This would make editing updated areas significantly more accurate, and provide a way to confirm the new developments before GPS traces are available. It would also make such imagery accessible to all map editors.

  20. Event with more than one other language

    At the moment it is only possible to enter an englisch and optional one other language name for an WME Event.
    Can this limit be increased for optional up to 4 or 5 names (including the englisch language)?

    That would be a gread addition for events that have official names for more than two languages, espiaclly in regions where boarders with more than one country or countrys which have multiple languages.

    As example for boarder regions:
    Belgium/Germany/Netherland
    Austria/Switzerland/Germany
    Austria/Hungary/Slovakia/Czech Republic

    As example for countrys with more than one local language:
    Luxemburg (2 languages + englisch)
    Switzerland (4 languages are spoken)…
