With the arrival of many new RNAV approaches there are now new waypoints created just for these approaches. We have to plan the flight to these points in order to start the approach.
T‌here are some on the current charts. ‌
F‌or LFQQ for example: OLBUS, UPMIT, ASBAR, these are fine and very helpful if cleared for RNAV approach or when planning one.

C‌ould we have more:
‌EBKT for example, we need at least MIRZO and ALFAS (I added them as user waypoints since it is my homebase, but other pilots would benefit)‌
E‌BCI: VAMKA, GUGNO, OSVAM CI25F
These are all published in the AIP with coordinates.

We would like to support this, so we'll look into it. A recent overhaul of our waypoint code should make it relatively easy for us to include different classes of waypoint, including this kind which (in a broad sense) I suppose could be described as IFR waypoints associated with an airfield/approach.

Thanks, 
I tested another flight planning tool for 60 days, SD flies rings around it but the other tool had these nice additional waypoints as STAR or SID or Approach.

Yes that would be great!
