You can edit replies, just not actual original posts by the looks of things.  Would be very useful

@Neil Patterson I don’t have that option on replies?

I seem to only have them on discussions, not questions or ideas?!  Talk about inconsistent 😂

I believe you can only edit within like the first 60 minutes of posting - then the option goes away.

Hey @Jtischler@gstager is correct. You’re currently able to edit posts and comments up to 60 minutes after sharing them. Could you share a few examples of times that you might need to edit your posts or comments outside of that 60 minute window?

@Adam Ballhaussen when I catch an incomplete thought or error on original post comment after the fact.  I posted an idea about ablity to assign a specific certification retraining object, but didn’t realize I left off the object  verbiage so the ide title is misleading and incomplete

It’s not even that, seems it is no longer available - but maybe the inconsistent UI as Neil states -

hey site manager, can you post how edit options are supposed to work? A month or two ago, I found edit was available until another post/reply followed or it seemed that was the case but IDK which part of the Comm it was… “Don’t make me think” :)

Curious about this, Idea comments can never be edited though right? I often submit those and then go back to edit and go “D’oh its an idea”. The rest of the areas no issue if within the window.

IDK, “Don’t make me think” lol… seems to serve no purpose and confuse us such that we post about it or search for posts about it, if it annoys us enough, and until we forget again... 🙄

Keep in mind, it’s a third party platform so could be a limitation there…would need to get on their community and vote up an idea to make consistent :)

One of the books I quote the most - right up there with the Bible and Don Norman’s “Emotional Design”.

Was that his follow up to The Design of Everyday Things?
