New WME Version v1.35-7

Post by MapSir
Hi Guys!

We've just released a new WME version to production.

What's inside:
* Translations uploaded
* Closed MP's and UR's don't pop-up - FIXED
* Clicking a PUR doesn't open it - FIXED
* Entry points for Venues! - Now you can set an entry point for place points, and residential places.
* HOSPITAL_MEDICAL_CARE place category removed
* New confirmation message when creating a new city through place editing

Thanks to the Beta Pirates community for attacking these bugs and issues!

You're absolutely right!

Previously, creating an RPP or PP, would trigger the search engine to look around for a matching address, street name, or closest segment.
Now you can modify the entry point to places, and thus force the search and routing engines to always navigate to that point for the specific venue.

This is very helpful in cases where a store might be located on a main street, but the actual entrance is out back.
Or if a house has a certain address, but the best stop point to get there is actually on a different street.

Is this more clear? let me know!

Correct, Devs call in Entry point :)

Trivia211 - The race flag in the app will always represent the end point of the route, not the location of your venue/Address.
The option to set an entry/stop point without moving the actual place has many advantages.
* New editors would sometimes move the place to the "right" location, and mess up the navigation.
* Client users who send PUR's can be matched better with the relevant venue in place. avoiding images being attached to the wrong venue.
* In the future, we'll introduce multiple entry points.

It's also for the Ads campaigns. Because we match Ad pin to place location.
If the place will be off there is a chance the system won't match the Pin correctly.

So when we have a house number ánd a residential place, what is used?

2nd, can you please put the residential place navigation point at the same place as the corresponding house number? And the triangle at the place where the house number is?

Because you would want the finish flag on the building, but the navigation point on the road.

There is also a new place merge feature. A new PP created next to an existing PP (the new PP must have the same name and category) will create a PUR to merge into the existing PP.
