Slack© is our most used communication platform, maintained by the community. It is a good starting point for finding more information. You can meet other editors, read the latest information, learn from discussions, or ask a question. Slack can be used via browser, browser app or mobile app. You can join several teams and switch easily between them. Please feel welcome to join Belux Slack.


To join the community on Slack register one time. We appreciate your display name being the same as your Waze username. Your editing level goes into your Slack status as L1 or L3. This will ease the interaction. You can change your profile directly in settings.


In Slack there are several Channels, Private groups, and you can send Direct Messages (DM) as well. The general channel is an announcement channel, only administrators can post a message there. You can however add emoticons.

The channels are divided by subject. Public channels can be viewed and joined by clicking on the + behind "Channels" in the menu left. In the mobile app, to reach the menu, click on the logo top left.

Closure channels

If you need a road to be closed, you can request it in one of the following channels:

With a script (WME-send-to-slack) you can send a request directly from WME into one of these channels. The channels are also fed by the Closures Bot providing information about closures set by users.

How to use it

Slack is rather intuitive, but to make the most of it, we have some tips 'n trics especially for the Wazer. You can ask Slackbot for help using triggers like -permalink, and Slackbot will reply with information on how to make a Permalink. See an overview of all triggers typing "-help".
