Maps - Report a Problem Notifications?

We received a report that someone was getting offered to be notified if they report a problem on the Apple Maps app.

I haven't been able to verify. Can people tell me if their Apple Maps offers this when they report a problem? If so, please post a screenshot.

thanks

I just reported (again) an incorrect name of a local fuel station and I was not asked to be notified.

I wasn't asked to be notified after reporting a problem either.

I've been able to report five POI problems and have had the Notification option each time.

Here's hoping they're fixed quickly!

What kind of notification is it? An email? A push from the maps app?

It's a standard push notification that indicates that your problem/submission has or has not been fixed.

I should note that it will be shown as coming from the Maps app and in some of the screenshots I've seen, it shows the area that's fixed.

Woot! I received five push notifications today indicating my Maps problem submissions had been resolved. Each included a link to the resolution in the Maps app!

They were fixed in less than two days!

I got the same thing today!

However I'm no longer given the option of being notified when I submit more errors

It's the same for me, I don't have the notification option anymore either.

Soooo, then you can only do one notification per day?

I was able to do at least 10 today before it stopped showing. Maybe there's a limit or they do it during certain times of the day as a trial before a bigger launch


Edit: also it only worked with incorrect information, incorrect pin location, or missing location. I tried fixing the name of both a harbor and a street near me and it didn't offer notifications for that.

I was able to correct another 5 POI's today before the "Notify" option became unavailable.

I'm now up to 25 or so corrections today and still have the "Notify Me" option when submitting a Maps POI correction - I'm tired of submitting them for now.

I've been getting Maps correction notifications every day or two now! They seem to be on the ball, finally! 😋

I encourage others to get to submitting your corrections, pronto! 😋

What sort of map corrections are these that there are so many consistently? I can't really say that I've ran into anything odd in quite a long time with Apple Maps, and even when I did or do, it's rather rare.

They were a combination of misplaced POI's, Closed Businesses and New Businesses.

In the Chicago area, there are lots of misplaced POI's such as the POI is in the middle of the road or down the road/street from where it's actually located.

I'd be surprised if you don't have misplaced POI's in your area.

I submitted about 10 clearly egregious errors when this thread first popped up.

No notifications, and none of the errors have been fixed.

Did/do you have the "Notify Me" option when submitting? If not, it appears those people with that option are the only ones seeing their submissions addressed/fixed within a day or two.

Out of the first 20 or so that I've submitted in the last few weeks, I've had 16 confirmed fixed! I submitted a bunch more today and had the "Notify Me" option each time.

I'm trying to figure out how/why you got the option to "Notify Me", because it doesn't show up for my iPhone or iPad.

Do you have Frequent Locations on?

Yes but I don't believe that has anything to do with why I have it. See this - http://www.macrumors.com/2014/04/09/apple-testing-maps-notifications-to-inform-users-of-fixed-problems/.

I guess I'm just trying to narrow down why they picked you.
