Answer Writer role and tooling

The work of defining a dialog tree is technical, however the the work in writing, editing and reviewing individual answers is better performed by a Writer/Author/Subject Matter Expert.

This idea is for the Watson Tooling to add a new screen that lists all the text answers and allows users with limited technical ability to edit each answer and mark them as reviewed / approved and show the date & time last modified and last reviewed, so that Answer Writers can filter to make sure that the written answers are up to date.

    This makes complete sense.  Not in the short term, but something we're looking at in 2019.

    Was just at a chatbot summit in Sydney, where most organisations said that content management in terms of authoring answers, reviewing answers, approving answers and version control was a pressing issue.
