You need editor access to create a question in Quest. If you do not see the link to the editor in the top right corner of the main course page, or under shortcuts, simply send us an email to request authorization.

If you already have been granted editor access and still don't see this icon in your upper right hand view, please clear your internet browser's cache, fully close out of all browsers, and try again.

We're here to help!

If at any point you need assistance with using the editor. Please reach out to questhelp@austin.utexas.edu

The Editor page can be navigated to by clicking on Shortcuts and then the Editor link, as shown below. Alternatively, click here


Within the editor, the left side bar (expanded by clicking the three horizontal lines to the left of the home icon) has a useful links section on the left hand side.
