Live items should have an icon to indicate that they are already live
Questions that are set to live should have an icon next them. This way a user can quickly tell if a question was set to live and set it appropriately if needed. Would make it easier to ensure a test is appropriately created and prevent having to hunt down the offending item that prevents a test from being valid.
Please see the wireframe provided by our team. This idea is now put to vote.
Currently in Item Authoring you are able to filter by Live items, however the idea of using an icon to visually achieve this is something we will address with the design team.
