I received 4 email notification saying a fellow editor has marked the UR as not identified but there is no history of the conversation that has transpired.

I haven't looked to see if a UR outside of my editable area will let me start or add to a conversation, though. I think there's nothing wrong with being able to see a UR/MP outside of one's editable area, but I could see a possible issue if you can start or add to a conversation outside of your editable area, given the inability to actually close the UR as Solved or NI.

IF I'm logged in,
I can NOT see URs outside my editable area at all.
I can see, but not close, MPs outside my editable area.
If, however, I log out, and use Play Mode, I can see both URs and MPs anywhere.
I'm using Chrome v 30.0.1599.101 if it makes a difference.
These conditions are the case for me in both the production and beta editors. SuperDave, can you verify that you're actually able to view URs outside your area, and not just MPs?

This was a feature of the UROverview script, not part of the official editor.

Oh really? Huh. Didn't know it was related to URO...
Thanks...

I recently recognized, that the Livemap-URs don't have the additonal info "sent via Livemap" anymore. That's too bad, because it's difference if someone is just panning the map and seeing some inconsistencies, or if a UR is sent on site...

Although, is it possible to recieve an email-notification for a solved Livemap-UR? (as it was some time ago?)

Yes, something should be done. Some editors keep closing reports with questions as not identified before someone even answers. And those editors do not reply to private messages :(

And can recorded drives and routes lines in UR's be made double longer (not including start and final point of course). Currently they are often not long enough to determine whats was the problem.

When receiving notification about conversations - the link to editor is in old format:

See this issue in the Waze map editor https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat=xxxxx

Conversations feature works great. I have received answers in 5 minutes after posting question. And it is much better for users too, they write HUGE answers when not driving :D

But do turn restrictions actually work in routing?

Official feedback thread - v1.3 - Schedules & Conversation

Postby ohad-ron » Sun Nov 03, 2013 10:11 am

Hey guys,

A new version of the editor is upon us!

The two main features we are introducing today are Scheduled Restrictions and Conversations.

In general:

Scheduled restrictions - lets you define segments which are only available to some types of vehicles for some of the time. This is useful for HOV and public transport lanes, bridges, disallowed left turns in rush hour, etc.

Image

A few things to note about this feature:

  • Scheduled Restrictions are part of the map. That means that whenever tiles are updated the scheduled restrictions are updated. That makes this feature less appropriate for things like short-term construction works and and sports events. We are working hard on tools that will work for these use cases as well!
  • Currently all Waze clients are considered a 'private vehicle' so that's the only kind of restrictions that apply.
  • There's currently a bug in the system where restrictions with duration of more than approximately 50 days are not taken into account. We are taking care of this and it will be solved within the next few days. You will be updated.

Conversations - this feature lets you talk directly from the editor with people who have reported update requests. Client users are able to reply directly from the client, and you will get a notification to your client and an email when they respond.

Image

We encourage you to go and read the comprehensive wiki articles (Scheduled Restrictions / Conversations) so you can make the most out of these two features. These are very powerful features which can be destructive in untrained hands :D

I want to take the chance to thank our amazing community for helping us thoroughly test these features, suggest improvements, and write the wiki articles! You are the best!

Please let us know if you see any issues or have any feedback at all.

Happy editing,
Ohad
Ohad R.

I'm sorry for my ignorance, but I already read all the wiki post, and I can't understand one thing yet. If I want to block a road only to Sundays from 5 AM to 1 PM (due to closed area for jogging), I just need to mark "Sunday" and the time? I don't need to place anything else?
