When taping “Add place” then the map is currently directly opened with a search box.
So if wanting to add a new travelmode place, then one need to first add a place and then edit it and set it to travelmode.
Wouldn’t it be nice and logical to have the “Add place” button opening the “Edit place” dialog box, but for a new place, where one then can choose to search for a place or to use travelmode, and set the time range and edit the name before saving the new place?
Ok, fair enough. It’s not clear this is a common practice. If you are the only one doing this and I add the extra “Edit Place” step everyone else will have to endure it for the convenience of a small number of people. In other words, should 79,000 users have to see the screen for the convenience of 1000 users
Here is the reason why:
Mostly I want the graphs to display the time from - 1 days to +3 days.
But sometimes I want to see more hindcast, from -3 days, and sometimes I want to see a more long term forecast, upp to +16 days.
I don’t want to have -3 days to +16 days as my default time span, since it mostly is overkill makes it harder to quickly digest the information for the normally most interesting days.
It takes 5-7 taps (and focused concentration) to open edit and change the time via “edit place”.
By having a second place in travelmode with more hindcast, and a third place with more forecast, it’s possible to verry quickly change the time span with only 2 taps.
If also the zoomlevel is saved per place than I would use this also to have more than one place in travelmode with the purpose of having it as a shortcut to get to a a couple different preset zoomlevels.
