    If I'm not mistaken, it is currently not possible to edit our answers to Q&A questions beyond the initial five or so minute window when we first make them. Many times I later look over my answers and either catch a minor error or have something else to add. I suppose one solution would be to add the question again manually, enter the new answer, and delete the old question, but this seems unnecessarily complicated.

    I understand why editing comments has a limited window opportunity due to their back-and-forth nature, but Q&A's don't really have that potential pratfall.

      Yes, you can edit any question at any time. Just click on the filter to show 'answered'. Find the question. Edit it.

      And yes, they are assessed, but will appear on the hub straight away. You might not see them on your Q&A list for days.

    There is a way to do it but it is a pain.  Go to the filters and click show answered.  Copy the answer (unless you have it saved elsewhere). Click add question and retype the question then paste the answer and edit it before submitting.  It would be much easier if there was just an edit function and it would be useful if we want to change it or add to it at any point.  I assume the date on the question, which would change if it were updated will effect it's ranking as it does with our articles.

      Does the Q&A's go through a quality assessment review before it is posted?

      I have a button to edit both the questions and the answers. Are you saying that you are not have this edit button?
      If you are not, I suggest you contact HP and ask that this be cleared up so that you can edit questions and answers.
