Please help with this!! I have a group but no one can find it including me when I type either the entire name or portions of the name into the search engine.

I can't find any groups at all. Except the two that I'm already assigned to.

I am new user and had this same problem using the app on my iPhone. I had no problem finding the group using the website on my PC.

I noticed that if I used a generic search term, such as "avoid", the app would return groups that were within some x mile radius of me. Could it be that the mobile app only searches groups that are nearby, perhaps for performance reasons??

I created a group "BFBS" for the staff of my company who work around the world. It has 2 members.

Problem .. loads have tried to search for it ("BFBS") but Waze always returns the message "no groups containing BFBS" .. or something similar. BFBS appears in the group description too.

Why can't it be found ?
Regards ..

Have you tried using Safari browser? I found that if I used Chrome or Firefox, I cannot also find the groups I created but with Safari browser I can view them.

I can't find any groups for the Milwaukee area online in my dashboard by searching?

I'm using FF and not IE.

About 20 nearby groups show up (for Chicago, 90 miles away from me) but NONE for Milwaukee show up, even though my friend's iphone version of the app finds them just fine?

I heard there is a problem on the web interface for searches. Can you search for it and see it in the client?

As for vicinity, 10-20 miles should be acceptable. Note that they can likely only search for it from their client app though.

Are the other users near you physically that cannot see your group? I understand the groups are only designed to be visible to others in the vicinity and not across states or countries.
