Hi, Why is it that we can not edit the quizzes while they are waiting for several days in queue. I often do not see errors when I first post a quiz, but while they are in queue I often go back and find errors. Also, often other editors see one of the quizzes in front of it,then when I check the quizzes that are still in waiting I see the same errors in the upcoming quizzes. I whave wondered why is it, that we can not edit while in waiting. WE can edit once launched or once an editor sends them back, the only time we can not edit is when they are waiting, the one time we might be able to fix issues and save the editors time.

So any thoughts.

I've often wondered this myself!

We can edit the title, description, category and image - but not the important part, the questions/answers! And like you I've often noticed an error in a launched-but-not-released quiz and wanted to correct it before the editor sees it, but I can't!

Interested to see any comments? Is there a reason for this that has escaped us?

If you see an error, add a note to the description for the editor.

This, from Player Support:

I have launched a quiz and am unable to make changes to it...

"All quizzes are basically "locked" while the editors confer on its content and whether to approve it for launch or return it for further modification. Once your quiz is launched and LIVE on Sploofus, you can edit the questions and answers in the event that you discover an error in the quiz."

Ah - that's an idea, adding a note for the editor to the description. Good one.

And it's nice to know there *is* a reason we can't edit the questions/answers while the quiz is between launching and releasing, although I would have thought that would have applied to the whole quiz, not just the q/a part.

I suppose it's only become an issue because the lead time is so much longer these days - when it was only hours it probably didn't come up, but now it's days we have time to think more!
