Why is the Questionnaire protected?

A Questionnaire in Bonfire is set up with two response columns, Response, and Response Comment:

The purpose of the Response column is to allow the Buyer to provide a drop-down menu from which you would select the best answer.

The Response Comment column is where you may be requested to provide more detail or an explanation; a text-based answer you would type in. In the below example for the first question, the Buyer has indicated that the Response Comment cell should be left blank. For the second question, the Buyer has indicated that a Response Comment is required, therefore you will have to input a Response Comment for that question in order to complete the Questionnaire template:


You may see some questions where there is a hyphen or dash in the Response column:


This indicates there is no response required in that column. You will need to provide a freeform response either in this cell or the Response Comment cell. A response in either column will satisfy the response requirement. 

Note the adjacent cell changes from pink to green to indicate a particular question has been completed.

If you try to type your answer over any of the formatted cells (question, #, Title cells) you'll see a popup similar to the screenshot below:


If you try to unprotect the cell, you'll be prompted to enter a password. This is to protect the correct formatting of the Questionnaire; in order to type your answer, simply move to the correct cell (Response Comment). 

It is important that you complete the Questionnaire as it's formatted, otherwise, you will not be able to upload it to the Bonfire Portal.
