[[File:MEPRoute.jpg|thumbright|200px]][[File:MEPCard.jpg|thumbright|200px]]{{Mbox|type=important|text={{As of|May 2019}} multiple entry points can be added to area places. However, they are not used in the production app. Production users are routed only to the originally created entry point.}} Multiple entry points can be added to area places only. When navigating to a place with multiple entry points, the Waze app brings users to ''whichever entry point provides the optimal route'', which is often but not necessarily the closest entry point to the user. The entry point being used is shown in the app on a card as part of the route summary.
The end flag (black & white checkered pin at the end of a route) and the location flag (red pin displayed in the place information tab in the app) always display at the first entry point that was created, whether or not it has the Main box checked. It is also the location used in routing during situations for which multiple entry points are not yet enabled (see [[#Limitations|below]]). Checking the Main box on a different entry point moves it to the top of the list but has no known effect in the app.
===== Pedestrian entrances =====
[[File:PedEntry.png|thumb|Entry points mark the doors of a traditional shopping mall.]]As with point places and single entry points, if possible, multiple entry points should be positioned where a person would be dropped off when arriving at a place. This is useful for most single buildings with multiple entrances and for destinations that may not be contained within one building but occupy a single, exclusively pedestrian area. Some examples include traditional malls, open-air malls and markets, stadiums, arenas, smaller parks which can't be driven through. At a building, place the entry points at the doors of the building. At a mall, do not place entry points at anchor stores, unless there is no other easy way to get into the mall. At a stadium, place the entry points at the spectator gates. At a park, place the entry points where drivable roads meet footpaths into the destination.
===== Vehicular entrances =====
[[File:VehEntry.png|thumb|Entry points mark the roads into a large strip mall.]]If a place does not have discrete pedestrian entrances into itself as a whole but still has multiple, equally useful vehicular entrances, multiple entry points should be placed at these vehicular entrances or around the area of interest of the place. Some examples include [[Places/Parking lot|parking lots]], malls where people can drive to individual stores throughout (town centers, collections of large strip malls), or large parks that can be driven through. Entry points should not necessarily be placed where the roads enter the area polygon; place them around the area of interest of the place. For example, if a large park has parking lots, playgrounds and athletic fields all clustered at one end with access from roads in multiple directions, place the entry points around this area. If the whole area places place is equally interesting to drivers, place entry points on roads leading into the place, but ideally drivers should be able to see wherever they want to go within a the place from a given entry point.
