  1. 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 :)

  2. Limit number of reports that can be dropped in a small area

    This morning a Wazer dropped 17 reports in a parking lot. This is really uncalled for. The number of reports should be limited to X number of reports to X number of feet/km. It is OK if it is coming from multiple users, for instance an accident or closure on a highway. But one user should not be able to drop that many reports in one small area. This was limited to a small parking lot where this happened.

  3. Close the turns

    Now we can only close the segments, but it would be really useful to be able to close only the turns.
    In many cases, for example, when there are road works at an intersection or roundabout, you can turn in one direction but not in another.
    In these cases for the moment, we can not do anything, at most we can insert a restriction on the turns but obviously with all the limitations of the case.
    They are not in real time and are not visible on the map.
    The ability to close nodes recently arrived on the WME does…

  4. Time based speed limits

    Speed limits are not always a fixed ones. For example , roads around the schools have a speed limit of 30 kmph during the morning and evening hours. Whereas this limit is not valid for Sundays and during the rest of hours in a day.

  5. Improve RPP editing when it conflicts with HN layer

    When adding or editing RPP, if there is a conflict with the HN layer (i.e. too far), then the WME issues an error that prevents you from saving your edit. Thus, you cannot add or update this RPP.

    To resolve the issue you need to perform the following steps:
    1. Update/Remove the address in HN layer
    2. Wait for next (successful) map build
    3. Add the RPP

    This is an annoying procedure that should and can be avoided.

    The issue can be handled in one of the following ways:
    1. Verify the RPP against the most updated data either in…

  6. Add manual lock level to Junction Boxes

    Currently, Junction Boxes do not have a controllable lock level. From the look of it, the lock level displayed is the minimum level for the country that can edit a JB. For example, in the UK only L5+ editors can edit JBs, so all JBs show auto(5) in WME.

    With various changes that HQ are making into WME and the app, it seems to me that they expect a massive increase in JBs over time. U-turn prevention, junction modification for Falcon are just some of the things for which the answer often seems to be "use a JB".

    I'm not…

  7. 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).

    Hey!

    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.

    Best,
    Hezi

  8. External Providers Search Displays Too Little Information

    The + Add linked Google place functionality on venues is incredibly difficult to use. When you search, the Waze-prioritized white space leaves almost no room for the search results to actually contain usable data. As it is now, I often have to guess as to which place it might be and often have to repeat the process making editing places very inefficient. Please expand the information displayed here so that this functionality is actually useful to finding and linking Google places. The whole name of a place should appear along with a complete address.

  9. "Sharp" Turn Instruction

    Create a "sharp" turn instruction. Similar to "keep" instructions being an angle <44 degrees, a sharp turn instruction could be one greater than 135 degrees but less than 170 (which would be u-turn). Other apps already have this instruction and it would greatly complement lane guidance visuals that use the sharp left/right turn symbol. Alternatively, it could be provided only as a TIO for use only where the community finds appropriate.

  10. [Segment Attribute Request] Treat 2 Way as Divided

    I would like to have the ability to draw a single 2-way segment but be able to mark it as divided so it does not say you have arrived until on correct side of road. Sometimes you may have a segment that may not really need to be divided into 2 One-Way segments but if you want routing to offer the correct directions you would have to divide the segments. In my picture below, the red line shows what Waze currently does (it says you have arrived as you pass the house) The green line shows what it should be…

  11. Keep previous history for merged/split segments

    Hello!

    I think it would be very helpful if segment history included data from previous "iterations" of that segment, when a segment was created by merge or split.

    Right now, the history starts anew any time there is a new segment ID, but I would imagine it should be fairly trivial to develop a backend mechanism that, any time a segment is split or merged, merges the history of the previous segment ID into the new segment's history.

    This is useful not only diagnostically but also to catch cheaters on the map, who today can split and merge segments at…

  12. Show Entry Point Name changes in POI history and PUR

    I noticed that Changes to the name of Entry Points of places won't show up in the POI history, it simply says "Updated Entry Points".

    This also affects PURs, since you don't know what the Wazer/Editor is suggesting until you accept it.
    I reckon those requests mostly get declined since there's no visible change.

    My suggestion is to add those name changes to the history and PURs.

  13. 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

  14. Subscribe to segment

    It may be nice for us to be able to "subscribe" to a segment ID, not sure if it should be rank locked or not.

    Basically, add a check box on a segments panel to subscribe to changes of the segment.

    When subscribed to a segment, if a change is made to a segment the subscriber gets an email notification that their segment has had changes (and of course provide a PL)

    Among other possible uses, it could be used to get notification if someone makes a change to a segment that is part of the Toll Price feature.

  15. Sunrise/sunset vs absolute times for restrictions

    Some roads have driving restrictions based on the local sunrise/sunset times, which are difficult to map even somewhat accurately as a series of consecutive restrictions with absolute start/end times.

    Being able to set a single year-round restriction using a "sunrise" or "sunset" option to set the start/end times, and leaving it up to the routing server to determine what the actual start/end times are for each restriction based on the current date and coordinates of the restricted segments, could therefore be useful.

    Hey,

    We have looked at this suggestion, and in order to make some decisions about it, would like to kindly ask you to provide us with more data about it.

    Please share some examples for when and where this restrictions apply? (use cases)

    And any country you know relevant for it.

    Thanks!

  16. Editing fuel types for each Gaz station in WME

    It would be nice if the types of fuel at Gas stations could be created, selected and sorted for each specific Gas station when editing directly in the WME.
    The main thing is that for each Gas station it was possible to create its own set of fuel types.
    For example:
    for one - Gas, 92, 95, Diesel
    for the other - 92, 95, 98, Diesel
    etc.

    Because all Gas stations are Different!!!

  17. Addition of a road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road

    It is suggested to add one more road type: Dangerous or Unsafe road. This type will be used for example when it is a very steep or winding or bumpy road, or a road on the edge of an abyss.
    The time it takes to pass the road in such cases is not the only parameter that counts.
    It is suggested that the "penalty" for passing such a road will be proportional to its length. For example 1 minute for every 100m.

  18. 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.

  19. Automatic UR handling

    An update request (UR) without any text can be automatically handled:
    1. There will be an automatic system response to the UR that will invite the user to add more details to his request in the WME (include a link) or in the forum (include a link to the local community forum). The user will get an e-mail as fr any other manual response.

    1. Every such UR that has no more responses (other than the automatic one) will be closed as "not identified" after 7 days.

    That automatic handling will save a lot of time wasted by area managers. A…

  20. Allow closure creation in "Current live map/snapshot" mode

    At the moment, it is no longer possible to add a closure to a segment you have removed or split up, even though this segment is still being used live in the app. If it were possible to add closures in the snapshot mode (recently renamed to "Current live map"), even with a strict time limit, our life would become a lot easier during road works.

    At the moment, we need to apply segment restrictions, wait for the map update, remove the closure, make our changes, wait for the map update and then probably add new closures. If we can…
