Re: New Editor Version! Scheduled Restrictions and Conversat

Great improvement!
Will it be a app update soon? I noticed there are some taxis using Waze here, and as there are some restrictions to private vehicles that doesn't apply to them it would be great if we can set the kind of vehicle we're diving in the app.

Thanks!

They've worked in beta testing, according to multiple reports. Very useful in our area -- so far!

They do, but unless they have fixed a routing bug, restrictions which are dated and have a span of more than 50 days will not work. They were supposed to fix this as part of the public release.

They seem to be working for me.

Agreed. "All weeks" or no-date-ranged restrictions, both turn and segment types, are working as designed, from my POV.

I did extensive testing on the notifications and determined that push does work, but it does fail often. I used a test account to post the URs from the app so I could see what users would get exactly, and when. It seemed to send more reliably if I had clicked Permalink on the map recently. But even with that, some push notifications were just completely lost or never sent. Either way, some where never received. (Hard to know where the problem lies.)

There were times when the push didn't appear, but the message was in inbox. But there were more times that neither the push nor the inbox message was received.

At this time, you are not 100% guaranteed that the Reporter will get the push. More likely is that they will get an inbox message without notification. These is disappointing because for those users who register with a fake email address or only use facebook to connect, they will never get an email, so the push/inbox is the only way we can get messages to them.

It is going to be included in the restrictions this vehicles?

I do not see it listed as a suggestion. I searched the thread Waze posted a while back.

I like checking the map, sometimes several times a day, to clear the place of those little !'s. This whole waiting 7 days for a person to reply thing is killing me. Is there any way that we can mark something as solved or not identified, then if the user who reported it wants to they can reply and reopen it?

I understand it can be a pain, but we editors need to think of this from the community and user-POV. Not all of them use Waze daily, and so 7 days is a reasonable amount of time to wait. Yes, that means our maps will have a few more commented-on orange pins hanging around, but in order to give users a reasonable amount of time to respond, we need the patience.

There is the possibility to have closed URs visible on the map for a time. That may become a feature of the editor in the future. If they can be re-opened or are just for visibility/reference, remains to be determined.

Maybe for users in the US and Canada, not true for the rest of the world.

This switch in the URL is not currently working.

I think it's overkill as I don't want to spend this much time managing UR communication. But there's certainly no harm in doing it this way if you wish.
