Bio-ARROW - Troubleshooting - Can't Edit Protocol
You can only edit your protocol when it is in the Pre-Submission state or the Changes Requested state. You can view the status of your protocol by going to the protocol workspace, checking the yellow status bar and the workflow diagram:
In other states you are unable to edit because the protocol is under review by the Office of Biological Safety (OBS) or the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC).
If your protocol is Registered (Approved) you may only edit the protocol by initiating an Amendment/Renewal or Grant/Protocol change.
To edit a protocol that has been Withdrawn, Inactivated, Expired, Rejected, or Archived, open the protocol, select "Copy Protocol" in the left side menu, then make edits to the protocol copy and submit as you would a new protocol. To locate a protocol, you can use this guidance https://kb.wisc.edu/arrow/ibc/page.php?id=43343
