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.

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.

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.

When helping with the scheduled blocks for the Mexico City Marathon I had to provide groups of segment IDs and closure times for each group... I guess this could be used to set different times the correspond with the time in each side of the time line.

Waze uses local time based on the client. This is the same as it uses for ETA calculation. The server doesn't know or understand time zones. If the client tells the routing server it's 11:30, and the server knows the road is closed 11-4, the server will tell the client it's closed.

Presumably, since mobile phones set time and time zone automatically, the client's clock can be trusted. So there's no real need for the routing server to be time-zone-aware except perhaps for proper ETA calculations on routes that cross time zone lines.

During one of our managed events the local time zone, anything else wouldn't make sense. But i would mention the time zone to be sure.

Probably been mentioned, but scrambling here...what time zone is being used? Should I assume that in the form? I don't remember it specifying that so I just put the local time. So are the events posting in advance and will last through the event end anyways? Some questions I guess I am not sure of. Thanks!
