  1. Speed limit update requests to Production in ROW

    Given that the appearance of SLURs has now calmed down I would like to make a proposal to move SLURs from beta to production editor.

    There are, however, two questions to everyone in ROW:
    1) can you reports SLs from app? New SLURs pop up from time to time, but I haven't been able to make one myself;
    2) would you like to bring all previous SLURs to prod or have a reset and make a fresh start? My vote goes to "bring everything to prod", because the current amount and appearance of new ones is manageable.

    Thank you for this suggestion.

    As it was announced in the forum we are currently working on improving the SLUR workflow and user experience.

  2. Do not move my map somewhere else after an edit

    Hi,
    when editing from the feed (closing MP, UR), after saving WME moves to a random place where it thinks there are other UR I can solve. It is extremely annoying. When editing I save often because of various save bugs, and as soon as I saved it moves somewhere else and I cannot find where I was editing to finish the job.
    Same problem when saving, if Waze thinks there is a problem it moves my map to where it thinks the problem is, and if it is a long road, it happens often that the road is offscreen.…

    Hey!

    Thank you very much for this great suggestion.
    As we believe this will be solved with a release of related features, we added to our backlog to track and make sure it was solved.

  3. Add closures to new segments

    It would be really great if we could add closures to segments just after creating them. Currently that's not possible. In this case, once the segments are built into the map, the closures would be added to them automatically

    Why?

    Sometimes city administrations make few changes in the traffic by creating new roads. The problem is that most of the times (at least where I live) we don't know exactly when those roads will be released. In addition, map build may delay.

    So, as soon as we know a new road will be built, we can create it on WME…

  4. New Place Address

    I'm not sure if it's a minor-bug or intended, but I ask you to take a look:

    Issue regarding Map Editor Beta and Production.

    :arrow: When you find a new place waiting for approval, if you click on the red arrow everything runs smooth, but if you feel the need to click on the yellow arrow to check what's that place is about before approving it (sometimes you can't tell just by the name title), notice it isn't possible to change the address... well maybe it's ok at this point before approving it.

  7. Subscribe to segment

    It may be nice for us to be able to "subscribe" to a segment ID, not sure if it should be rank locked or not.

    Basically, add a check box on a segments panel to subscribe to changes of the segment.

    When subscribed to a segment, if a change is made to a segment the subscriber gets an email notification that their segment has had changes (and of course provide a PL)

    Among other possible uses, it could be used to get notification if someone makes a change to a segment that is part of the Toll Price feature.

  8. Junction Box Modal dialog does not appear in practice mode

    In practice mode, the modal dialog used to choose the routes through the Junction Box does not appear.

    It does appear when logged in.

    This is inconsistent. All the features of Junction Box should be visible in practice mode so editors can learn about junction box without risk of accidentally making changes.

  9. Allow users to keep hands on the keyboard until done typing

    As a general principal of design, please allow the user to keep both hands on the keyboard until done typing information

    Examples of desired behavior:
    Places - After entering address, use the return/ enter key to activate the "apply" button. Or else automatically apply address changes when tab is used to advance to another field. (Currently, we have to move hand to mouse, click apply, find correct place on keyboard, and then use tab to advance to name field and resume typing)

    Closures - After entering description, use the tab key to advance to "direction" (Currently, this does not work).…

  10. Enable Undo after Save

    It happened to me a couple of times. I deleted and element, clicked Save, and then understood it wasn't the element I meant to delete.

    It would be great to enable undo changes that have been just saved.

  11. Replace ':' and '>' by a direction field

    Hi guys,

    The idea would be to replace the ':' or '>' instructions present on segments by a direction field that
    would not display on the segment name but would allow to construct the guidance instructions.

    This would allow to properly manage the direction signs in the city without having this kind a street : "Street Chip: Dale area" and easily managed the directions in roundabouts, etc.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Hey!

  12. SLUR behavior (speed limit update request)

    Hi,
    a few month ago Irad told to make suggestions about SLUR, I took my time but here it is :

    In the beginning, we had a SLUR for every request, and there were way too much of them because sometimes there is a lag in showing the new speed limit so people were reporting speed limit that were already good, and also because speed limit were not visible in the client until you exceeds the limit.

    The idea of grouping them making cluster was implemented (against our will), and according to Merav last time I spoke with her about…

  13. Address localization

    lease allow localization of address field just as it is done in search results, so it would be possible to have "%{street} %{housenumber}" instead of "%{housenumber} %{street}" for some languages.

  14. Recommend change link for Parking Lot Operator Fixes

    The "Add an operator to the list" link under parking lot operator selection makes it sound like you can only add new operator names.

    Once you go to the link you see that the form is actually for more than additions; "Use this form to add, delete or replace parking lot operators that will be shown in the Client."

    Recommend changing "Add an operator to the list" to the following "Operator list change suggestion". If you want a second line "(Add, Delete, Merge, or Spelling Correction)". This is more descriptive of what the form can actually do.

  15. Suppress Live Map Overlay

    Recently a change to Live Map introduced an overlay and call to action footer with information on how to download the Waze app when the URL contains a permalink to a location.

    (Image attached)

    While this is great for users that have not yet been introduced to Waze, map editors do not need to see it every time they open Live Map from within WME. Fortunately, if the following query string parameters are appended to the URL, both the overlay and call to action are suppressed:
    While this is great for users that have not yet been introduced to Waze,…

    Hey!

    Thank you for this suggestion.
    This suggestion is related to Live Map and not WME.

    In addition, We don’t have the overlay anymore, and therefor we won’t move forward with the suggestion.

    Thanks!

  16. Link points POI to an Area POI

    Hi guys,

    The idea is to link points POI to a Area POI.
    For example, linking stores in a Mall or linking a company office in a building.
    It's also to avoid this kind of editions : https://www.waze.com/editor?env=row&lon ... 157&zoom=6.
    I think this will help editors to determinate which stores or companies are present in a Mall/building and help user to use the right entry to go to shopping or working.
    It will be a plus if you can also link, a point POI entry on an Area POI entry.

  17. Selecting a search result shouldn't reset the zoom level

    When using the WME search box to find a road, it would be really nice if WME could leave the current zoom level well alone rather than always resetting it to level 3.

    Even if it just defaulted back to level 4 that'd be an improvement, but jumping back out to 3 means we then always have to zoom back in at least one step if we want to be able to select a street segment. And even at L4, anyone looking to do some work on point places would then need to zoom in one step more before they…

  18. Parking Lots: Show Payment Types only when needed

    Please consider showing the 11 payment types checkboxes only when the "Cost" dropdown has "Low", "Moderate" or "Expensive" selected.

    This will help you to have consistent information too: For example, what does it mean that a free parking log accepts Credit Cards as a payment type?

  19. Show "Hidden" external providers like Yext

    Show that this data exists, so that editors will be more likely to merge than to delete.

    When new place points are added as part of a large upload from Yext or some other advertising aggregator, many editors will be likely to reject the new-place PURs because an already perfect place already exists.

    If they were aware that there was some other important information in the PUR, then they would be much more likely to accept the PUR.

    The back end data script reveals the existence of this data in places. But I don't think it makes sense to depend…

  20. Prefill city when using a street name suggestion

    When we currently enter the name of a street, we get autocompletion suggestions based on existing roads in the neighbourhood. It would help quite a bit if the associated city field would also be filled in whenever we use one of these suggested road names. I know that every street has a city set (or none, on purpose) in the underlying data model, so this shouldn't be a big effort to add.

    (see Mock up 1 + 2 attached )

    I'm still contemplating whether I'll write a userscript for this or not. It's not so easy to hook into those…
