 Manager can change item state without meeting requirements

Pages/Feature:

Manage | Project Bank | Examine Questions page

Description:

Project Managers can now override mandatory item configurations when changing the state of the item, or saving the item that creates a new revision.

The project manager can override the following mandatory configurations:

  • Require Writer to classify questions to level = yes
  • Questions must have references = yes
  • Require reviewers to classify unclassified questions to level = yes
  • Mandatory question Metadata = true

This change allows project managers to change the state of an item from the Manage | Project Bank | Examine Questions page even if the item has not met all the mandatory requirements. Previously project managers had to change the mandatory item configurations before they could change the state of the item, and then had to reset the mandatory item configurations.

Icon

Content related validations (e.g., no correct answer is set), item specific validations (e.g., point & click validations) are still required when an item produces a new revision.
