Excited about these new features and have already used both of them a few times in the last day or so. Thanks so much for continuing to listen to the community and develop these great new editing tools.

How do I add Turn Restrictions when both ends of two highlighted segments are labeled the "B" end, as in here?

You might want to verify that "Push Notifications" is enabled / allowed in Settings>Notifications menu.
Works fine for me on Android, not sure what platform you are on.
I did see some mention of some 'trick' that needed to be done on some iOS devices when a reinstall was done to re-allow notifications, and it was basically to hold off the reinstall for about 24Hrs if I'm not mistaken. It was apparently fixed in 3.7.2 already, but here is the thread anyway.

Just a smal question for who knows.
Will be deleted a restriction active for a specific range of days?
For example, I setup a restriction starting from today to tomorrow. After tomorrow, when the restriction is not active anymore, why I still see the rectriction on the road?
Is existing a periodic "script" that remove all the death restrictions from the server?

I know they remain... this the reason for my question :P

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

But didn't yet.

[*]There's currently a bug in the system where restrictions with duration of more than approximately 50 days are not taken into account. We are taking care of this and it will be solved within the next few days. You will be updated.[/list]

At least I haven't seen a update yet.


Assume this means restrictions where there is a date range selected. What about permanent restrictions? If "every week" is selected, those restrictions work, right?

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 suggest that 'solved' locks the report from reopening (user will need to submit another if they still feel the issue needs looking into) whereas 'not identified' can be reopened if the user provides more information (preserving the entire conversation history)?


Don't know about "reopening" what's been deleted -- that might be hard with a big database like this to keep deleted stuff on backup. But you might consider sending one last message through the conversations dialog a little while before you close it, including another point of contact for you. I use a junk email addy I don't care about publicizing. Or if you have a state forum, you might direct them there if they have further comments.

Anyway, the future contact point will appear in the email they get and in the app inbox (I'm going to think positively and assume the push delivery to the app will improve). I got one follow-up that way so far.

Anyone having a problem with conversation text disappearing from the dialog box? Just happened this morning.

Just to add: So many URs have to do with external search engines delivering a bad location. A new editor can fix those as well as a ranking one by submitting the correction to the third-party site (still think the wiki could include a fuller tutorial on that aspect).
