=== Location details {{Anchor|Point placement}}===
[[File:PP stop point front door 2018.png|thumb|Point place marker placed positioned at the front door of a business.]] The point place should go on or very near to the segment to which the driver should be navigated. By default, the Waze routing server will navigate the Wazer onto the segment which is closest to where the point is placedpositioned. Typically, if the place is inside a building, the marker should be located at or near the location's front door. Think: where would a car stop to drop someone off for this location. If the closest segment to the physical location of the place is not where a driver would drop someone off to go there, an [[#entry Entry point|entry point]] may be added, which will cause routing to stop at the segment closest to the entry point instead of the place point.
==== Placement Positioning examples {{Anchor|Point placement examples}} ====
'''Some examples'''
* A building with one point place:
** If there is only one door, place position it at that door.** If there are multiple doors on the same side, (like a supermarket,) place position it at the point equidistant from and collinear with the two front doors.** If there are multiple doors on different sides, (like some mall anchor stores,) if there's no "obvious" front door, place position it either at the door facing the largest parking lot or at the door facing the street on which the street address for that location is.
* A single building with multiple point places within:
** At a strip mall, put each store's point at the store's "front door".
=== Location details {{Anchor|Area placement}}===
By default, navigation Waze routes to an area place will stop on the segment closest to the as if there were an [[#Entry point|entry point]] located at its center of the area. If this This default behavior may or may not yield best routing results. To ensure optimal routing, it is not where drivers would stop when bringing people recommended to the place, add one or more [[#explicit entry points|may be to all area places except those typically used]]for display only, such as any place in the "Natural Feature" parent category.
=== Size {{Anchor|Area Place size}}===
==== Overlapping {{Anchor|Area Places overlap}}====
Sometimes a large area place has smaller area places within it. Examples include different medical buildings within a hospital campus or separate malls within a large shopping complex. Smaller area polygons are shown on top of larger polygons. However, if the the colors of the places are the same, Waze will show only the names of the smaller area places but not their boundaries within the larger area. It may be a better approach to use point places for the components of a larger area place unless it is essential that the subset place names be visible. Future versions of the Waze client may render overlapping area places more usefully.
== Residential point place {{Anchor|Residential place points}} ==
Residential point places (RPPs) are used for when an address (residential address or business address) is not navigable from the main road. Houses that are on a private road or pipestem, businesses that have a vanity address on a major road (but their entrance is on another named lesser road), or businesses that are on parking lot roads within a shopping center are some examples.
RPPs:
* Appear as triangles in the appWME
* Are searchable by address if city matches the search
* Any name on a place that becomes an RPP disappears after saving and is not searchable
* Cannot be converted to a public point place point or area place area (after saving)
* Appear in the app search usually within minutes
* Have a very high priority in an address search hierarchy
* Display in history who created the RPP and any edits after creation, if created in WME
See differences between [[House_Numbers_in_WME#House_numbers_vs_residential_point_places|house numbers and residential place pointspoint places]] for comparison to HNs. There are different advantages and disadvantages to each.
=== Creation ===
## Add the CITY (USPS mailing address city or city that the business uses if different)
## Click "Apply" button to prepare the ADDRESS information to save
## Click "Add point" button for [[#entry Entry point|ENTRY/EXIT POINTS]]
## Place the point where the user's navigation should end
## Lock to appropriate region standard, or your highest available level if you cannot lock to the regional standard
## Click the '''Save''' button in the upper right corner of the grey toolbar
# Make sure a nearby segment has the '''exact same''' street and city name combination either as a primary name or an alternate name.
# If an existing saved house number's (HN) anchor position is >50 m away from the proposed position of a new RPP triangle, then the RPP will not save. Delete the HN and wait until the HN database updates (generally at least two [[Map tiles#Updates|tile updates]]) to retry saving this as an RPP. The proposed RPP can either be saved in the correct location as a point place (with name added, should be converted to RPP after HN update) or as an RPP within 50 m of the HN anchor location (should be moved to correct location after the HN update) with an entry point moved to the correct location. A [[map comment]] should be added here to both remind editors to fix it and to easily find the area again.|steps to create an RPP|nt=yes}}
{{mbox|type=important|text= RPPs will not be found in address search if they do not have a house number, street name, and city name. Additionally the '''exact''' street/city name combination must be specified on a nearby segment (primary or alternate name). If located on driveways or access roads other than the road specified in their address, they may not route correctly without an entry point.}}
==== Applications ====
The proper application for multiple entry points is for places with '''multiple entrances, all of which are <u>equally useful for general entry</u> into that place.''' 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 place 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 placed at added to special-access entrances.
Position the first entry point where it would be placed 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.
===== Pedestrian entrances =====
== Moving ==
All types of places can be moved, but WME imposes a limit (see [[Places#Moved|Moved]] below) on the distance that a place can be moved, above which the change cannot be saved. If a place must be moved a large distance, multiple saves are required.
=== Point and RPP ===
Thus, when choosing categories for a place, do not ask "what category comes closest?" but rather "if a Wazer explicitly asks for this category, will this place be representative of what they seek?" It is absolutely correct to use the '''Other''' category if nothing else available satisfies this question.
 
====Description====
 
Users will see the contents of the Description field only when viewing details for a Place. Descriptions are limited to 300 characters maximum, and are not searchable.
 
Descriptions should focus on brief, easily verifiable facts that:
*help drivers locate, identify, or reach a destination;
*help them park for a destination if potentially confusing;
*help confirm that the destination being offered is what the user wanted;
*highlight possibly unexpected restrictions, such as a park that doesn't allow dogs;
*qualify the destination's details; or
*differentiate the hours or other details of any sub-destinations, such as a pharmacy within a larger store.
Descriptions are not for reviews, opinions, or redundant, obvious, or offhand comments, nor are they for educational discussions of history or significance. To offer detailed information to the user, set the Place's website field to the destination's official website.
 
If a description appears to have been added by a Waze-approved third party, you may leave it as is aside from any necessary corrections to facts or grammar. You may shorten or remove an existing description in order to include any of the essential information listed above, and you may edit descriptions that seem excessively opinionated in order to improve neutrality, but please respect the standing of advertisers who may have paid Waze to add the Place and its description. Consult local leadership if in doubt.

== Moved ==
If a point place is needs to be moved more than 1046.59 feet approximately 400m (319 meters1/4 mile), the change cannot be saved in WMEwill report an error and not allow saving. Therefore, if a business or other public place has moved a short distance, move the associated point place to the correct location, update the address and delete any photos that are no longer accurate. However, if a business has moved a long distanceyou have three options:# Move the place within the 400m (1/4 mile) boundary and save, remove then repeat until reaching the new location.# Convert the place to an area place, stretch a corner to the new location, delete the entry point, then save. Drag three of the geometry points of the area to the new location and delete the fourth, convert to a point place, and save again.# Mark the place as permanently closed in Google (if linked and Google place already exists at new location) and Waze according to the following section and , then create a new placeat the correct location and fill proper data and linkingFor the first two options, make sure the place is moved in Google as well
== Closed ==
*It may still be under construction but already well known, as is the case with some large destination stores and attractions.
Whatever the reason, Waze users should not be routed without warning to places that are not open for normal business. However, because Waze includes third-party searches can include results in searches for places, without a [[#External_providers|linked Waze place]], users may end up navigating to a third-party result with no way of knowing that from external providers which will not indicate if the place is not open or does not even existclosed. In the United States, the only external provider of Waze search results is Google Maps, and places that are either marked as {{Red|permanently closed}} in Google Maps do or linked to an existing Waze place will not appear in Waze search. Therefore, after confirming that a place is not open for business due to any of the above reasons, the following procedures procedure should be used:

=== Flagged {{Anchor|Flagging}} ===
[[File:FlagPUR.png|right|200px]]Waze users will frequently flag closed places for deletion, which generates a PUR with the options of ignoring the flag or deleting the place. If the place should be deleted immediately, delete it through the flag, which will send the user a message that the flag was reviewed and approved. If you need to wait to delete the place until third-party results are corrected, wait to handle the flag and then delete the place through the flag. If the place is still open or has just moved a short distance, hit "ignore" on the flag PUR.
=== Additional information ===
Closed [[#Advertisers|advertised places ]] may require the help of a [[State manager|state manager]] or [[Regional Coordinator|regional coordinator]] for removal from Waze.
