The question bank is a centralized location for review cycle questions. Once you create a question the question can be edited until the question is used in an active review cycle.  Once the question has been used in an active review cycle then certain components of the questions will lock from being edited. These components include the question's optionality, response type, and the content or wording of the response type. You are unable to edit these components of a Reviews question after it has been used because it interferes with the data of the previous responses to that question in past review cycles. 

How Can I Edit These Components of a Question?

Luckily, there is a workaround to edit these components after they have been used in a review cycle! Here are the steps that you will want to follow to edit a Reviews question that lives in a template that has been used, but is not currently in use (not in an active review cycle): 

Note: Templates that are in use will not have a lock icon next to their name

Step 1: Navigate to your "Admin" panel 

Step 2: Click into "Templates" within the "Reviews" dropdown menu

Step 3: Click on the ellipsis to the right of the template that contains the question that you are looking to edit and click "Edit"

Step 4: When you find the question that you want to edit, click on the page button in the bottom right hand corner of that question

Step 5: Once you have duplicated that question, you can make any edits that you want to make

Step 6: Save the question 

Step 7: Click on the trash can in the bottom right hand corner of the question that you did not makes the edits to. This will delete the original question from your template. 

Step 8: Click on "Update Template" to save your template

This edited and duplicated question will now live in your question bank, along with the original question. If you have no use for the original question, you may want to archive it from the question bank to avoid any confusion in the future.
