We recommend that you don't edit a live survey because it could affect your results. Otherwise, you can edit the name, question type, settings, and conditions. You can update the channel settings for a survey by adding the same survey to a different channel. This allows you to distribute a single survey in a variety of ways to maximize the number of responses you receive.
