Someone sitting near a time zone line may be willing to try this out: two similar TBTRs valid since e.g. 10:00 at two sides of the line, a route through them at 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 and note, which one is when taken.

Staff informed us that TBTRs are not time zone aware, I believe.

My extrapolation is based not only on personal experience and conjecture but also on that statement from staff.

This is a screenshot of some of the data that I was asked for when preparing for the Mexico City Marathon so I still maintain that for events it would be easy to use as a way to manage different time zones.

Hi, I'm trying to fill road closures regarding FIFA's World Cup event in Curitiba, Brazil, and apparently I have read-only access to that spreadsheet. What am I missing? Thank you.

Hi guys. I need help with a major event in Barcelona that will close two of the major streets in the city. I've sent a request in this site (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1R0XIsG ... o/viewform) and today waze sent me an e-mail that accept the event. Now I don't know what is the next step to do correctly this event.

Please help, and sorry for my english..

Waze usually share a document with you to fill in. In that, you can put in permalinks, closure times (dates, hours etc.) Did you get that one yet? If not this form should work just as fine. Just follow each page and continue to add all the segments that are closed.

At my request in Major Events roads were closed in time. However, Waze routed through the intersections of closed segments. As it was necessary to specify the closing that there was no such intersections?

You should close the connecting roads as well.
The event only closes the segments, not the nodes.

BTW – unless it's been updated, the "how to input event closures" presentation says that cross-streets are closed automatically. But I believe that you are correct, Peter, that they are not, and that they need to be added.

What happened to not posting in old threads..

All the information in this thread is from 2013-2014 and mostly outdated.

There are new features and resources now regarding events, it's no longer only managed through online forms and spreadsheets.

Waze staff would get any submissions in here and if they need to notify Champs about something I'm sure they would do it through the Staff CM of each community like it happened before.

So, when a user send a new event from this link https://www.waze.com/events as we do to be notified?
