simplified guidance for single and multiple entrance points from now until they are enabled in the production app
== Entry point {{Anchor|Setting the stop point for a Place}}==
An entry point (formerly known as a stop point) causes can be used to control where navigation to a that place ends, rather than relying on Waze default behavior for places. Default behavior for public places is to end navigate to the closest point on the drivable closest segment closest nearest to the entry point, rather than the point place marker position or the center of the area placecentroid position. In addition, entry points on RPPs allow navigation Default behavior for a residential point place is to navigate to end on the closest segment to the entry point regardless of its name, whereas routing to most RPPs without entry points ends only on the closest segment with which matches the shared (street and , city ) name as in the RPPaddress and is closest to the point place position.
If an An entry point is needed, it can be added by selecting the place and clicking "Add point" under ENTRY/EXIT POINTS. This will cause a An [[File:WME_Stop_Point_2018.png]] icon will to appear on top of the point or at the center centroid of the area place, which and can then be moved into position.[[File:Stop_point_dashed_line_2019.JPG|thumb|Entry point distance limit]]. A dashed black line boundary box will show the limit for where the entry point can be placed. === Guidance ===* Use only one entry point - the application currently routes only to the earliest-created entry point* Entry point names may be named or left unnamed - the application does not show the name* An entry point is necessary only when:** The point place marker or area place centroid position is not in the correct place - nearest to the closest segment where a car would stop to bring someone to the place.** A residential place (RPP) has a different (street, city) combination in its address than the street it should stop on. Without an entry point, the navigation stop point will be on the closest segment which matches the (street, city) combination. Examples: A building with an address on a main road, but entrance is from a named or unnamed side road or parking lot road; a place with city name different from the city name used on the segment with the same street name.f a single entry point is created, all traffic ** The entry point should be positioned very close to the closest segment where a car would stop to bring someone to the place.<!--Example:A large park with an entry road on the east side, with a close-up view of entry point position.{{clear}} [[File:WME AreaPlace w Stop Point 2018.png|thumb|left|300px|WME AreaPlace w Stop Point 2018.png]] [[File:WME AreaPlace Zoomed w Stop Point 2018.png|thumb|right|300px|WME AreaPlace Zoomed w Stop Point 2018.png]] {{clear}}-->
When moving an entry point, the editor will show a dashed black line boundary. The entry point must be placed within this boundary box as shown below.=== Single ===One entry point can be added to all types of places, whether area or point. Position the entry point on or next to the closest segment where a car would stop to bring someone to the place.<!Testing Guidance--Here is an example of an Area (a large park in this case) which has an multiple entry road on the east side.

The This is why current guidance recommends only one entry point being per place.

==== Applications ====
The Once multiple entry points are fully enabled in the app, the proper application for multiple entry points is will be for places with '''multiple entrances, all of which are <u>equally useful for general entry</u> into that place.''' Add entry points only at the entrances that are equally useful for general entry into the place for most drivers navigating to the place. For example, at a public place like a mall, do not add multiple entry points at doors for employees only. At a school or stadium, even though some doors may require special access (student ID, event ticket), if most drivers would have such access, multiple entry points can be added to special-access entrances.
Position the first entry point where it would be if it were the [[#Single|only entry point]] for the place, because of the [[#Limitations|limitations]] below. Generally this would be at the main entrance, or if no such entrance exists, somewhere at the center of the place that provides the most useful drop-off location.
