Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to Customer's instance
  2. Navigate to Recruiting
  3. Create a Job and add questions from the questions library


Read Only - Readonly questions are not editable questions i.e users can't edit the description nor the question response.But it has nothing to do with the way questions are added in the Job Requisition. User doesn’t have an option to update the answer range and the description or renaming the question.

Hidden - The reason for this is that hidden status doesn't have anything to do in question library. The framework of the questions library is (more or less) a direct copy from the Competency Library technology, which has had more features than we need for RCM; Such as the ability to enable/disable .This is an expected behavior.
