No, they are not required to ask questions. Sometimes they ask for reconfirmation of what was said in the report because the client has insisted on that. I have met many of their editors at conferences ad, believe me, like most editors, they do not want to do anything that is going to slow down the flow of reports across their desk unless it is required. They have a thankless job and work under great time pressure.
JGoodwin do you simply reiterate the information from the multiple choice questions? It seems redundant, but if that’s what they need that is how I will do it. One area of the questionnaire had so many questions with no that I’m not sure how I would even word it. I guess “We did not discuss installation, warranty, etc, etc, etc.”?
