Connect an Advertising Pin to its Place on the WME
Very often it happens that advertising pins are not placed in the correct place on the map, which leads to routing errors. It would be very useful to be able to link these Pins to the corresponding Place entered by the editors in the correct place in the WME, so that the routing to these destinations works correctly. (as we already do for the link to Places on Google Maps).
Thank you for this great suggestion.
We currently have an internal process in place to address this issue, and therefore won’t be developed as a feature in the WME.
If you encounter any issue with advertised location. Please let your coordinators know about it, and they will inform the SCM, so we will be able to check this.
In Brazil, for example, there is a network of fuel stations that often have pins out of place. I already reported it using a specific form, they were momentarily corrected, but they appeared out of place again. So I gave up on correcting it. I believe they have a table with the coordinates of the locations, and with each new load, it will end up in the wrong place.
Yes, this would save loads on time. Even having ad pins appear in WME would be a great start (similar way to the Google Maps link.)
Then, when hovering over the link, just like the Place Interface Enhancements offers, see when an ad pin is too far away from the actual Place.
Actually editing the ad pin should be something for R5 and up probably.
