You can edit answers both while the report is running and over, and your answers have already been sent. 

To do this, use the standard Slack function - "message actions"

1. Hover over the message you'd like to edit. 

2. Click the "Show message actions" button on the menu that appears when you hover over the message. 

3. Select "Edit message."

If you don't see the Edit message option, this can mean 2 things:

  1. You try to edit the system message:

    According to Slack terms, users are only allowed to edit messages that they created themselves. If the Standuply app sent the message, only the Standuply app bot would edit their message.

2. You don't have permission to edit messages, and you should contact your Slack workspace admin or Slack support:

To check this:

  1. Try to edit any other messages you have in Slack. If you don't see an edit option, most probably, your Slack role or Permissions doesn't allow you to do that.

  2. a. In Slack, open your Direct Messages with Slackbot.
    b. Send Slackbot the following message:/verify
    c. Slackbot will respond with a code and your role in the workspace
