Automatically turn on UR layer
When an editor sends a request for information to a reporter, the email that the reporter gets says
You can reply using the Waze mobile app, or https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... 42&env=usa (β) in the Waze map editor.
When the reporter clicks the link and gets directed to WME, they can't always figure out how to respond because the layer may not be turned on so the UR does not show on the screen for them to see. The UR layer should automatically get turned on when the link is clicked since most of the reporters don't know anything about the layer menu.
On a side note, I think the wording should be changed for slightly easier understanding for responding via the app.

Thanks for this great suggestion, this is now available in the WME. Visiting a permalink that includes a selected object should turn on the relevant layer.

Not just this, but any permalink that highlights an element, should force that element's layer to be on. So Places should force the Places layer on, etc.
