Updating Dunkin Donuts location?

Postby Freshmixture » Mon Nov 19, 2012 1:03 pm

Are there any plans to being able to move markers to their proper spot on a map?

Cheers!

I doubt it. I'm guessing it is up to the advertiser to provide correct locations.

Good question: does the advertiser mark the exact spot or do they just give an address and bing returns the location?

What is the recommended way to handle user created general errors regarding a "Dunkin Donuts in wrong place" report?

Just wondering if anybody has any updates on this. I noticed this morning, that the Dunkin Donuts location on the Waze Maps is incorrect.... Wondering if we can update.

Here is what I was told on how to handle these:
1) mark solved - take no action
2) mark Not ID'd - take no action
3) Go over to Bing maps and submit the correct location on the map, then marked solved

The reason behind each:
1 - you've done everything possible (Within the waze system) to resolve this complaint
2 - If you mark it solved the user get's an email and will expect to see their address corrected next map update. This way they won't be expecting
3 - goes "above and beyond" but you'll feel better.

If it's a business I have first hand knowledge of, I'll use option 3.

As to if/when to use option's 1 or 2, that's a judgement call I'll leave to all the AM's and higher.

Thanks for the help! I have gone over to Bing and submitted a "map correction feedback" submission.

I regularly post corrections to Bing. If I get an UR about wrong location I go search for it in Bing (assuming the UR actually gives me the address or name of the POI), almost without fail the error is obviously with bing so I submit a correction report. And I have seen a few get corrected, it's not quick, but it does happen.
