Scripts are extensions on top of the browser which are used to enhance or simplify the editing experience. While none are officially supported by Waze, the community of editors and developers maintain a collection of scripts to reduce the burden of some editing tasks. Scripts are managed via a userscript manager such as Tampermonkey, which is added to the browser, and then scripts added to Tampermonkey.

The global wiki keeps a database of commonly used scripts. Below is a list of scripts that have been developed for use in Australia.

Oz Street Name Check

A forked script that checks the suffixes of street names for compliance against the allowed Australian abbreviations. Streets that violate the policy are highlighted to draw the editor's attention to the road.

To use URC-E to insert comments on URs, change the default list to English - Australia. If you like to add an email address to your comments, please add it to the "Tag email" box in the "Per comment list settings".

To insert your sign off on a comment where it is not automatically included, make sure "Enable append" is ticked and then select one of the insert sign off options. Generally only the "Quick Replies" auto includes the sign off.

There is a bug where segment names cannot be used on auto generated replies, but they can still be inserted manually. Selecting two segments will insert the phrase "the intersection of <segment a> and <segment b>".
