  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Testing routes in waze map editor

    I would like to test a route, from A to B, in the map editor to check if the optimal route is chosen and find the reason why not. It could be easier to find that waze leads astray which happened to me this summer. Waze tried to lead me against a one way street.

  5. 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

  6. Allow road closing for low rank editors

    Allow lower rank editors (like me) to close roads from within WME. Since Waze doesn't want to allow low ranked editors to close roads (for good reasons), the solution would be to only show the closed roads for the editor and group. If others value my contribution, they can subscribe to my group and get additional road closure updates.

    It might also be possible to close a road and have it marked unapproved, awaiting for a higher rank editor. But that unapproved closure would be active for the user and group within the App.

    If the closed road gains enough…

  7. School zone

    Ability to replace school zones, and online through the map editor to establish the school zone times. Allowing the mapping software to reroute out of a school zone . The ability to skip out of school zones like we do with toll roads.

  8. Enable closure duplication on expired closures

    It would be very convenient if you could duplicate an expired closure as you currently can with an active or planned one.

    Any user reports should not be deleted, especially when they are closed as "not identified"

  10. 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…

  11. Multiple sets of hours

    Add the capability for editors to add multiple sets of hours for an establishment. This feature would be especially beneficial for banks and pharmacies. At banks, ATMs are often open 24/7, while human tellers, consultants, notaries, and other banking personnel are not at banks 24/7. At pharmacies, the convenience store and the pharmacy itself mostly have different hours. Finally, there are some establishments with delivery hours and/or drive-thru hours that differ from the establishment's standard operating hours.

  12. 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".…

  13. More options for the business hours for shops or places (WME)

    In the WME, I guess we can modify the option available to define the business hours.
    In France and I guess in other countries, some shops or places are closed for lunch. We should be able to define the duration of the break between morning and afternoon.
    in the same way, some shops or places don't have the same business hours for each day, so we should be able to define the business hours hours day by day.
    Last point is that depending on the seasonality shops or places ( for exemple on the west coast in france) don't have…

  17. Better WME ranking system

    It is very hard for newcomers in WME to be able to contribute as much as they wanted due to the ranking system that doesn't allow to do much at first. It is very hard to get to at least level 3 which allows to alter some segments in the driving area and it is almost impossible without hunting for missing POIs or stuff like that. There aren't always many editors with higher ranks and sometimes they can get overwhelmed by the editing tasks and opened map problems.
    There should be a better system in place that would allow newcomers…

  19. First-Time WME Login Tour / Tutorial

    Create a tour/tutorial screen that pops up when a user logs in to the editor for the first time. The screen would be greyed out except for highlighted areas, where a chat bubble would explain what that button/area in the editor is for. It would also provide the means to have the editor engage the community through the forum or Wazeopedia.

    For example:
    - "This is the layers button. You can turn on extra layers to see roads, places, comments from other editors, etc."
    - "This area contains a feed of map content, your recent drives and editable area, and…
