  1. Add an item under the Place menu for Residential Point Place

    Right now, to add an RPP one must select a place type (other than residential) and then click to convert to residential. The vast majority of PPs I add are RPPs and this adds an unnecessary step. This should be simple to add, with no downside.

  2. Allow direct editing of alt names and cities

    Currently alt names or cities can be changed only by deleting the existing name and re-creating a new alt name. Please allow direct editing of alt names. Also it would be great if primary and alt names were draggable so an alt name could be promoted to the primary name without deleting and recreating.

  3. More Specific Error Messages

    Specific error messages are very useful, and we can use more of them.

    Here are some recent cases I have run across where it would be helpful to have a more-specific error message

    RPP too far from identical HN (zoom out if necessary to highlight the HN location)
    RPP too far from recently-deleted HN; try again after HN update. (zoom out to highlight the former HN location)
    Improper restricted turn in JB (show and highlight the specific turn arrow which is the problem). Allow the turn and try again (https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=211&t=276336&p=1922955#p1922761)

    Hey!

    Hey!
    Thank you very much for this suggestion.

    Detailed Error messages are part of the planned idea of the WME dev team these days.

    We will keep you updated with any updates

    Best,

  4. 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!
    Thank you for this suggestion.

    We are currently working on a road shields feature for the WME, and we believe this suggestion will be addressed as part of this development.

    We will update accordingly.

  5. 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.

  6. [REQUEST] Feed Filters

    It would be very nice if we could filter the feed by notification types (more or less like URO+ does, but without having to reload the feed several times to find the ones you selected).

    Options suggested:

    Notifications (checkboxes):
    - PURs (and subtypes);
    - URs (and subtypes);
    - PMs.

    Areas:
    - State XX (particularly useful for SMs and CMs);
    - Areas driven [last XX days];
    - Country (useful for CMs);
    - All editable areas.

    Those above are what I miss the most. But, since we're at it, some extra suggestions would be:

    Listing reason:
    - Reported by you;
    - New…

  7. 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…
