  1. Update Forum Sharing Options type of request

    Originally suggested by LostInMyMaps on my old suggestion.

    When an editor uses the forum sharing options to request an unlock, the type of request is very misleading and confusing.

    Instead of "Request an unlock", it should say something like "Unlock this so I can make the change myself"

    Instead of "Request a map update", it should say something like "Someone else make this change for me"

  2. Change forum request format when using share link in WME

    Even though my previous post says this was implemented, not a single thing has been. https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-map-editor-suggestions/suggestions/43000929-change-formatting-of-forum-sharing-options

    When an editor uses the forum sharing options, which is great, because of the order of the data on the request, valuable information is being overlooked.

    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.

    Reason:
    Unlock to level:

    Thank you in advance,

    The "reason" and "unlock to level" kind of blend in.

  3. Improve PopUp in closures

    Hi, im thinking in the posibility to include popup with Pic or Image when we creates a closure or Wazer (N3+) add image to existent closure, i mind, if i Drive with Waze app and that shows pics or photograpy about reason of closures, that helps to Wazers to know the reason and to us (like editors) to keep actualized and clear ending closures.

    Thanks for all!

    Happy Xmass, and a Happy New Year

  4. Mark segments as "slip lanes" that delay voice instructions

    At the moment, ramp segments generally delay voice instructions until you have merged or turned onto the segments at the end of the ramp, such as a freeway or highway.

    Australia and some other countries utilise "slip lanes" at some intersections, which is basically a left turn (for countries that drive on the left) that does not use the main intersection.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slip_lane

    When a slip lane is mapped on Waze, we usually implement the turn instruction where the driver enters the slip lane, as that is where they need to be told to turn. However, this can mean that Waze…

  6. ability to amend speed limits

    I'd be interested to find out how I can advise of a change in speed limit please. Our village (Newington, Sittingbourne, Kent) has recently introduced a 20mph limit across the village, but it's still showing on the app as 30mph.

  7. It would be a great idea if the buttons to show the types of existing roads had the colors of the different types of roads in the WME.

  9. Close User reports automatic after seven days with no response

    We suffer from the spread of reports on the map, and unfortunately we have to wait for seven days until they are closed. During this, weak reports may come that were previously, then it becomes difficult to close them. If the feature of closing after 7 days is included (in the event that there is no response from reporters) will be useful new for cleaning up the map from useless reports

  10. Filtering Waze Map editor Feed

    Hi.
    fi we had a chance to filter all the feeds that we receive in the main page of editor.
    This way they looks untidy and unwieldy, the filters may bring it back to life

  12. Speed cam edits should initiate tile update

    Currently, speed limit edits depend on nearby map edits to be included in the tile update process. This seems to be an old limitation.

    It should be possible to add or edit speed cams without requiring additional edits.

  13. Allow a specific path in a junction box to be Private/access only

    If we have one-way access-only restrictions, it's impossible to map this if other routes are available.

    Looking at the situation in the following graphic:
    https://imgur.com/cJEtlk2

    There's no way to get to some of the streets without using the one road that's open to all traffic.

    Having the ability to set a Private Road type to a particular route in a junction box will help resolve this situation.

  14. Control point / guard house on road

    I would like to recommend Waze add a map editing / issue feature for a road control checkpoint. A checkpoint is a common element of various roads around the world and would be important for Waze to add the ability to indicate it.

  15. Project Zone for Large/Difficult Projects

    Sometimes when working on large projects, it is difficult to get the timing with tile updates to make a major project (or even smaller projects) go live at the correct time. Often this is done with adding segment restrictions to new segments, waiting for a TU, then applying an RTC and removing the restriction, so that when it goes live, just the RTC has to be removed. However, this usually only works when what is added is totally new and doesn't require reuse or reconfiguring of previous segments. It is also very difficult during reconfigurations when the project all of…

  16. Close places temporary just as you can with roads

    As roads can be closed between certain dates it will be great that we can also get this for places. For example when a place is going to close for temporary construction.

  17. Add closed map suggestions count to profile page

    It'd be great if you could track how many map suggestions you have closed. You can already see your closed UR, PUR, and MP counts on your profile page so it would be great if closed map suggestions could also be added.

    Here is a simple mockup I made of what that could look like: https://i.imgur.com/XajOINK.png

  18. Highlight Lane Guidance Icons on hover

    Currently in Lane Guidance there are the icons up the top showing the composition. It would be great if when hovering over an item it would fade out the icons that wouldn't be shown and highlight the ones that would. You're already highlighting the path on hover so it could be associated in that! I think this would be especially helpful for FL2

  19. Add Driveway Road Type

    I'm Suggesting the Addition of a "Driveway" road type that can be added for long driveways for 1 house. Something can be shown for routing to the address using RPPs but not shown on the map as another road.

  20. Show lanes configuration even if not in editable area

    The lanes tab contains the number of lanes and the lanes associated to each turn, including far turns. This is necessairy for adding lanes but also for ckecking them them.

    If an editor has no permission to edit lanes on a segment, he only sees the total number of lanes and the lane configuration as a whole.
    This also happens when the segment is not inside one's editable area.

    The problem is, this way it's not possible for editors to discuss or check a certain lane configuration together if this is outside of the editable area.

    So please show the…
