Add Feedback to why a Lab Developer can't save a question in Activities

I was working through the latest lab developer workshop and trying to add questions for my lab. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't allowing me to save my question. The issue I had was I didn't select an answer but there was no notification that I did something wrong. The question just wouldn't save.

Choose the one role who will most appreciate this Idea Lab Developers or Lab Authors
What is the problem you are trying to solve?

Trying to alleviate frustration for lab developers / authors when creating scored labs. I got no feedback on why I could not save a question and recreated it multiple times before I saw that the example I was referencing had an option box selected.

    Thank you for your ideas. Form validation and proper messaging is something being reviewed to improve adding in Questions and Scripts to the Lab Profile instructions.

    This has been asked before. I will merge the ideas together. Stay linked with this idea and you will see the linked records.

    The same poor user behaviour also exists with Automated activities that at times you cannot save the activity but the platform dioes not tell you why. For example if there is no script. Which can be really frustrating if you just want to just create placeholder activity while building the instructions.
