editstab_screenshot.jpgWe have launched a new tab under "Your contributions" on Google Maps for Android that lets you keep track of all the places you have edited or added on Google Maps or Search. You can see the status of each suggestion - "Approved", "Pending" or "Not applied". All of this information is available under the "Edits" tab and is visible only to you.

 

Note that currently you will only see suggestions made after May 2016.

Is it locked to only show 3 edits?

Hi @CorrieD. I received an invite to maps testing program and it's been over 32hrs without the testing version. Could it be because i'm using Bluestacks? Thanks

 I think this is a great idea @CorrieD!

Dear @CorrieD Can't wait to use it on my IOS tablet.

Thanks for your info about it ;-)

Level 7

I got the maps beta on my android days ago or am i missing something?

Level 7

very useful 

but my phone is ios....

Level 8

This is an excellent addition. Was hoping for something like this. Possibility to add a sort or filter options? Currently sorted by most recent. Sorting by type could be useful. As would photos by most viewed

 

Level 7

Same question as @RogerN...I only see 3 edits for some reason. Any ideas on why that is?

Level 8

@CorrieD

 

Same as @SampsonF, I also hope the rejected reasons can be shown.

Level 10

I just checked on my phone, the features is not yet available. Still wait for the update...

Excelente noticia @CorrieD, ya estoy esperando que esté disponible la versión para iOS, que bueno que se estén generando cambio los cambios con mayor rapidez en estas aplicaciones que nosotros los Local Guide utilizamos mucho.

Dear CorrieD

 

This feature is great ! :)

 

But unfortunately I cant find it from my android phone or tab. Why ?

Is it not working in Hungarian language ?

A lot of my added places havent appered on the map after 2 weeks time.

Maybe because I couldnt mark the appropriate category ? Or did it just go to the wastebin ? :(

Unfortunately there is no category for a Beach in hungarian. (By the way I am willing to help you to translate into Hungarian)

I'm guessing not available in every country just yet? (not available in Thailand)

(edited to stop emails, don't need to see replies to the group message such as: "this is great" when they have nothing to do with my problem)

Hi Everyone 

the new edit tab hasn't been made for IOS. as of late.Anyone know when this may happen. Cheers. 

Rusty. 

Level 5

It will be helpfull if we will be able to filter the edits with pending, approved and rejected.

Level 7

I like this new tab, and for 'pending' ones it would be cool to know what would be hepful for Google to make a decision, e.g. maybe we could provide a photo of that missing place or a photo of the opening hours.

Level 7

i like this :D 

Level 5

Much needed feature.

And you can even review other people sugestions!

Nice!

:)

Level 3

Looking forward to using that. Not available on my phone yet. But yeah. Top idea!

Level 3

This is what I was waiting for! So I don't edit the same place multiple times. Which I definitely did, because I forgot about it. :D

It was amazing. I loved the novelty.

Congratulations to the team.

I noticed this function for a while. It is cool and helpful.

Meanwhile, it is also noticed several modifications I submitted keeping in pending status for quite a long time, but some were updated very quickly. The submissions I indictae are in same city, Shanghai (CHN). 

I understand Google suffers a lot of limitation in mainland China. But as there is still update for some submission, I amd curious the review and approval system behind. Who and how long it taks to review and approval/reject the submission.

Level 3

Finally! I've been waiting for this!

Level 5

It gives a better picture of what is going on with our submitted places, but it needs extra functionality:

  • sort by pending, rejected, approved
  • link to mapmaker to see why it was rejected and resubmit
  • make it work in desktop version too

Here is a sample of what it looks like from the desktop version. First noticed it today. Very impressive improvement.

There are bugs and the Edits report is not always accurate. These bugs are common in all versions of Google Maps (mobile and desktop).

For example, one of my modifications shows as Approved, but it is nowhere on the maps.

 

Also, there are modifications which still show as PENDING, but they were actually approved some time ago.

 

One last issue: it happens rarely but sometimes edits are approved, but notifications by email are not sent.

 

I think the people of Google should take a look at these issues.
