  1. Include Lane Guidance with URs in purple provided route

    Currently when we get a UR, we can see what primary instructions were given to users at junctions. Now that we have lanes, it would be helpful in diagnosing problematic lane configurations if we could see what lane guidance information was presented to the user as well.

  2. Notify if place is closed when starting a route

    Google Maps will notify you when you begin a route if the place you are going to is closed. Can this function be added to Waze?

  3. Permit Alphanumeric Prefix in RPP HN

    App users can create RPPs with alphanumeric prefixes but WME allows neither the creation, nor editing of RPPs containing them.

    Suggest at least allowing N, S, E, W prefixes on HN portion of an RPP to pass checks on save.

    In Wisconsin, a large part of the state's addresses use alphanumeric HNs.

  4. Add a button to refresh page where you are

    Hi

    With latest Beta, we're missing the old permalink button (on button right) that allowed us to refresh the entire page staying at our location.

    If you F5 you refresh the page but move to the url location.

    Only actual possiblity is to copy paste the actual permalink.

    Thanks

  5. Ability to edit PUR photos to blur items

    Very often we have to reject a PUR photo when it contains either identifiable people or licence plates. If we had a simple tool in WME that would allow us to blur those details then those pictures could be used. Current situation is quite unbearable since we have to reject way over 50% of PUR photos because of aformentioned reasons. It also affects negatively on user's eagerness to take photos if the ones they've taken before do not end up to use and we currently cannot even tell why those have been rejected.

  6. Push questions to communicate with drivers

    A suggestion to enable Push questions (PQ’s) to communicate with drivers in order to solve map problems
    I thought it would be really great if Area managers would be able to send PQ’s to drivers in order to get their help in resolving map problems.
    For example:
    • If I get a UR (in an area with low traffic) suggesting that a right turn isn’t enabled anymore and I want to verify this I might need to wait a long time until someone else will send an additional UR.
    • Or if a road is suspected to be closed and…

  7. Improvement for lanes

    I am attaching a suggestion here to allow adding lanes in node that refer to a "far turn". Implementing this suggestion will solve all the problems of setting lanes (including extreme complicated junctions, H and # junctions) without the need for any heuristics! It will work at any junctions even if it is extremely complex with many auxiliary segments.

    In the WME:
    When defining lanes to a segment, turns are automatically displayed for the end of the segment with the segment names to which they refer.
    My suggestion is to add an option for adding to lanes a "far turns".…

  8. Restricted areas: L5 users can restrict Rank 6 segments

    With restricted areas, a level 5 (or Level X user depending on what the final level will be when released in production/country setting) could currently add a restriction to a level 6 segment.

    Steps: find a rank 6 segment, draw an area on it => The segment is restricted.

    This may be a WAD (similar to closures for people who have closure permissions), but it's still risky and lowers the protection of the rank system. If the user deletes the area restriction right after the map update, the problem cannot be identified without staff intervention.

  9. Implement reCAPTCHA v3

    With the recent release of version 3 of reCAPTCHA (the thing you may get to see when you log in and the system suspects you may be a bot instead of a user), it would be a great idea to upgrade to the latest version. We've had several users who have had to fill in the CAPTCHA protection every time for some weird reason (I suspect someone in their neighbourhood is to blame), which could be alleviated with the new system. The system now gives you a score between 0 and 1 to gauge how trustworthy the request is. That…
