  2. Update the "Map editors" colour scheme to the new colours of the Waze Map Editor.

    The roads colours on the Waze Map Editor have changed. So the colour scheme named "Maps editors" should be updated accordingly.

  4. Move segment IDs to bottom of WME

    With the latest update to WME, when you select a segment, the segment IDs are now at the top of the side panel.
    This is fine when you only select one segment, but when you select several segments, it makes the left panel virtually unusable.

    We are constantly selecting multiple segments for various reasons like closing a stretch of road, adding speed limits to several segments, etc.

    Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please consider moving the segment IDs back to…

  5. Separate layer for natural features

    To make it lighter to load the map in WME, it would be great to have all natural features in a separate layer under places to be turned on/off. Notably:
    - Canal
    - Island
    - Sea / Lake / Pool
    - Dam
    - Dessert
    - Forest / Grove
    - Rivers / Stream
    - Natural features
    - Swamp / Marsh

    These rarely get URs in any case. It will make it easier and faster to navigate the map, looking for URs.

  6. Allow assigning road shields to alternatives names, too

    Currently, the WME only allows assigning 1 road shield to the primary name.
    This has a lot of limitations:

    • The PN must be unique inside its state
    • If a road has a local name, a Road Shield can only be assigned to the entire road (or the segments must be renamed).

    It would be good to be able to assign 1 Road Shields for each alternative name, too (which is even already supported by the data model).

    The Client, could then:
    - randomly pick one road shield to show for that segment (for streets with multiple RS)
    - must also…

  7. Holiday based turn/traffic restrictions

    Many streets, due to noise restrictions, or public leisure policies (weekend bike paths, leisure streets, etc), have their traffic/turns restricted not only on sundays, but also during holidays.

    I suggest that the restrictions screen on WME have added the "Holiday" flag. This flag would be checked against countryID, stateID and/or cityID (for national, state and city holidays) in a worksheet updated by champs, so that on these days the restrictions would take place.

  8. Revert requiring street/city name to be case-sensitive to auto-populate in results

    In previous WME production releases, you could begin typing a street/city name in any case and the results would auto-populate. The current WME production release requires both to be case-sensitive for the results to auto-populate. This slows down the workflow for editing segments and places. Here is a screen capture of the behavior: https://www.dropbox.com/s/10p1ocs243mitiq/streetnamecasesensitive.gif?dl=0

  9. Display name labels on places

    Display name labels over every place, so they're easier to spot when looking at an area at lower zoom levels.

  10. Remove the inert speed field from Red Light Cameras in WME

    As I was informed by staff today that the speed field in RLCs have no effect on the app behavior at all anymore. Furthermore any effects they did have were a bug. "We recently fixed a bug that was triggering the red light cameras' TTS based on the speed field added there. This behavior shouldn't be based on speed, so I highly suggest you create a suggestion on UserVoice for removing this field."
    Therefore i recommend removing the speed field from red light cameras entirely in WME. There is already a separate discussion and work being done on the possibility…

  11. Two arrival points for places created as Area

    Currently when creating a place area as there is only one arrival point to be adjusted.

    Tip: In certain types of places, especially Mall, there should be the option of adding another point of arrival because usually the Mall have more than one entry and Waze could trace the route to the nearest point of arrival at that location.

    Another problem is users who create places like area and do not set the finishing point, often cause routing problems for the nearest street may be another, then my suggestion is that when created places like area WME let alone save…

  12. WME ruler

    Having in mind new functionalities like Falcon and Road Width, it would be very helpful to have a simple tool on WME to help to quickly check the linear distance between two points.

    This would help to determine, in case of Falcon, the need to make a split of a segment or, in case of Road Width, to evaluate its width.

  13. Display why sometimes it is not possible to remove the streetname

    There are different cases when it is not possible to remove the primary name/city from a segment (the "none" checkbox gets grayed out).

    Unfortunately, there is no way to know why that happens, for normal editors.

    When hovering on the checkbox, you should display one of these 2 reasons:
    - This street has house numbers
    - This street has a Turn Guidance set
    - if there are other reasons which I still didn't find, add them too :)

  14. Add "apartment" as a category for a Place Point... Lodging doesn't cut it.

    Why don't you guys add "apartment" to the category list for WME? Lodging is NOT even close...

  15. Road details

    As we all know, WME is changing its appearance and because of that, many of us complained about the unneeded "empty space" that is everywhere on WME.

    I know that some extra work is being done by staff, in order to please us all the best way possible :) , but something more can be done.

    One suggestion is to use symbols, instead of text, for what I call "road details": Unpaved; Tunnel; Headlights; Next to BUS lane; Beacons.

    This would allow saving some more space and the icons are more or less self-explanatory, being possible to add a text/explanation…

  16. Gravel Road Checkbox in Map Editor

    An option similar to the Toll Road checkbox that would allow a street segment that's a Gravel Road to be checked off as such and would allow for more precise client preferences to avoid both dirt and gravel or just dirt roads. Many roads gravel roads are well maintained and perfectly suitable for travel, but shouldn't be marked as a Dirt Road/4x4 Trail.

  17. Setting to have vertical menu item selected when opening

    I often times use scripts or change settings before making my first edit. It would be useful to have the option to have WME open with a specific element of the vertical menu selected. That may be any of the options available, but Feed/Issue Tracker and Scripts would be my most likely to use first.

  18. 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.

  19. Include setting details in user reports

    Part of the challenge in handling reports is getting details from the reporting user. The following information should be available to editors to better handle reports with less need to request information from the Wazer:
    Avoid toll roads
    Avoid difficult intersections
    Avoid freeways
    Unpaved roads setting
    Passes added
    Vehicle type

    Basically anything that affects the route suggested by Waze.
    HOV route selected

  20. Keep start/end times when duplicating a closure

    When duplicating a closure and changing the date, the duplicated end time changes to match the start time. I suggest that when duplicating the times do not change unless the editor clicks those fields.
