Function to Locate Self Paved Roads without Staff.

WME needs function to locate paved roads created by user. Sections may be so short that it's difficult to locate through past trips or even driving normally without navigation. Especially if user drives a lot and does not edit often.

This already exists. Staff can generate Map Problems (MP) to automatically detect various potential issues on the map. Every now and then or at the request of community Champs, they can run scans to flag those. Otherwise there are also various scripts able to do the same at any time.

OK, how do I access (MP) for myself and only the roads I pave without contacting staff or community Champs?

You simply can't, Map Problems are not a personal tool. As I said, you need to get in touch with your community Champs if you want to make a request for staff to run a scan, also the MPs will be visible to all editors.

Thanks for your reply but that is the purpose of this suggestion. To work with minimal interaction with staff when trying to locate the paved roads created. Sometimes I may have a weeks worth of Nav history and can't trace every trip to find the segment of paved road to add.

Please read the guidelines pinned at the top of this forum if you want to make a suggestion. Only posting here or editing your first post to change the original content is not the right process.

As I also said, there are scripts that can already do just that if you really don't want to work with the community. Take a look in the scripts forum here:
https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=819

I'd suggest "WME Wide-Angle Lens" with its Streets plugin personally.

Thanks again, I was not changing the contents of my post but only the subject to better express the point as the original reply appeared to not be what I was asking. I thought user in the subject would be understood as myself but was understood as a general term. Your last reply now matches the question I was asking and will research the forum for your suggestion. The scripts you are suggesting was not in the original reply and was lead to believe staff intervention was necessary.

kingbrown75,
I recommend every map editor keep a notebook in their vehicle. I often pull over and scribble notes to myself of Waze map items that need to be changed. Then when I'm front of a computer and have time, I update the map based upon my notes.
