[[File:PP stop point front door 2018.png|thumb|Point Place marker placed 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. The Waze routing server will navigate the Wazer onto the segment which is physically closest to where the point is placed. <u>The Point Marker is the stop point</u>. 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.
When moving a stop point, the editor will show a dashed black line boundary. The stop point must be placed within this boundary box as shown below.[[File:Area_Place_Stop_Point_Lim_2018.png|800px|left|thumb|Stop Point Distance Limit]]
==== Moving a Point Place ====
To move a point Place, first click on the Place icon, which will turn into the icon below. Now you can click and drag the Place to the correct location.
<br />
<b>Note:</b> You should also be sure to move the stop point for the place, if one has been added.<br />
The [[File:WME_Stop_Point_2018.png]] icon is the adjustable stop point for Area Places.
Here is an example of an Area (a large park in this case) which has an entry road on the east side. The second image is zoomed in on the target to show how this type of Area should have its navigation stop point set. {{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}}

Waze allows you to connect places and POI from external providers. One of the providers is '''Google Maps'''. When a place is linked, drivers can select any destination from search results in the app, whether the result is from Waze or Google, it will always lead you to the navigation stop point from Waze. This can also be linked to a street address point for the business if the address point exists in Google Maps.
# Create or select a place.
# Click on the link: Link this Waze place to a Add linked Google place.# Gradually as you type the name of the place in the drop-down list, recommended external POI names begin to appear.(Note: if the name is shorter than three characters (e.g. BP), you will need to type a space after it.)
# Select the correct name.
# Save your changes.
If the place has already been linked, you will see a box with the name and address of the external POI, and below this field is a unique identifier.
If you find that a site is linked to an improper external POI:
=== More Info tab ===
In the More Info tab is additional helpful information for the Place. Here you will add phone number, website, additional services, and hours of operation:
