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've got the same problem. One of groups I have created show up without any problems, but another one is impossible to find.

So, is there really no solution to this? Or does it just take a few days for group database to update so that it becomes visible to others? I'm having the same problem with a group I created yesterday.

Can you provide more details? When did you create it? Can you see it but no one else? What is the group name? What phone do you have?

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.

It was created yesterday. Group name is BITOG. The only place I can see it is on my own phone (inside the the Waze app), which is Moto Razr M running Android 4.1.2. However, nobody else can see it and it does not show up when you search for it on https://www.waze.com/dashboard/groups/ either. I'm using Firefox browser on the PC, but I tried IE and Safari, and it doesn't show up there either.
