|This article has current ongoing forum threads in regards to Point vs Area, as well as naming. Please follow local or regional guidance on these until a consensus is made and this page is updated. Naming Forum Thread|
- Post Office
- Only if the place is listed by the USPS as "Post Office", "Village Post Office", or "Contract Postal Unit". If it is not in the list, please consult regional or USA Places guidance for the correct category.
- Waze Mobile App searches for "post office" will find Waze places only if they have the Post Office category or have a Google link to a Post Office. Thus, it is important we limit the amount of places we add the Post Office category to.
