If the form fields for "Date and Time" can't actually accept a time value, then please change the field naming. Times must be submitted separately.

Thank you Orit, is a new thing and will help us a lot.
It would be nice to have also the possibility to translate it so as to facilitate the work of the local user.

I submitted an event which was accepted and got the link to the spreadsheet but I can't get the segment information from the map editor because I'm only level 1. How do I get this ramp closure - Los Carneros on- and off-ramps from southbound US101 in Goleta CA - submitted? The off-ramp was definitely closed (coned off, signed) this morning but I am not sure if the on-ramp is completely closed yet. Today (19Feb) is the target closure date so it's probably closed as well.
The ramps will be closed for a year for bridge construction - http://www.project.goleta.com

Thanx,

This is my first semi-success with the new process. It's frustrating to say the least. First, I learn of the event, then remember to view it in the editor in Waze, then submit a form with a complete description of what is to be done, then I have to wait for an e-mail that gives me a spreadsheet into which I paste segment numbers from the editor, and I have to request access to that spreadsheet, THEN someone has to put the restrictions in a day before the actual event. I don't learn about these things until a week before, sometimes, and other times they're not completely specified.

Maybe there's a way we can allow users to enter restrictions for roads locked above their rank and then have some modest review process rather than all this crazy time-consuming process to allow me to specify something of modest traffic impact in the grand scheme of things.

Small note to the form. You don't need to provide Gmail Account to share Google Spreadsheet, it may be any e-mail added to the Google Account.

One problem I noticed is that. People may not know of an event until the day before so adding to waze might not get done in time. How long does it take to check and add these events?

Waze is pretty good with all closures. They check requests several times in a day and can close the roads right away (without needing tile update). Usually, we have enough info and time to enter/close mega events.

Can it alert you to events on your route before it auto re routes you. As you may be going near to the event and a re route may be unwanted
