There was some confusion around the expected behavior/how to update a form template being used in an assignment. This following describes the expected and current behavior related to this scenario.
Use Case 1 – User Overwrites Existing Form Template
User Context: Assignments are in progress that use a Form Template that has an issue (e.g. miss-spelled company name in title) and the modeler in charge of the assignments wants to change the form template as it is being used to correct the issue. All the assignments were generated from the same assignment definition.
User Goal: To update the form template and have end users be notified that a corrected template is available.
Contributor in Affected Assignment
Note: If the contributor had not opened the assignment prior to the template being updated this would not have effected them.
Use Case 2 – User Creates New Form Template and Refreshes Existing Assignments to Use It
NOTE ABOUT INCLUDED WORKBOOKS
If a contributor has included a workbook with their submission they will not be able to use the updated template until they use the “Discard” action to clear their included workbook.
