2.Select the segment(s) you want unlocking in the Editor, then create a Permalink to include in your post

3.Provide a short explanation of why you are requesting the unlock. Please note that a higher level editor may choose to fix the problem themselves so higher value segments will remain protected at their level

4.Indicate if you are an Area Manager for your requested segment(s), and your editing level status

IMO should keep the original Lock level by default. And add an check box to lock in L5.
However, as Dave said Waze have a gazillion things to fix first :mrgreen:

Ditto.
Or at least it left it locked at the original level.

Ideally, for partial lock of a selection it should show as grey (or something similar) ... but I'm sure Waze have a gazillion things to fix first.


Not 100% clear on what you mean here - if I select one or more locked segments, regardless of whether I also have any unlocked segments in the selection, I get the "You cannot edit these segments..." message in the General tab, so although all the segment highlights are shown in blue, WME does still provide indication that the selection can't be edited.

If you'd like to see the actual highlights change colour to indicate a lock somewhere within that selection, it shouldn't be difficult to script something to achieve this...

Ok, that explains it a bit better - so for CMs it'd be useful to highlight any segments high are already locked at a lower level, so they can avoid inadvertently raising the lock level when they edit those segments, right? Should also be possible to script that instead...

Could always set up a Lock Request forum where CMs can post requests for L3s to lock segments for them :D
