Hi @daniel.boon ! I noticed today what might be a bug or a potential gap in this update.

 

When you originally create an article, and then switch it back to a question or conversation, the update doesn’t take effect in the back end views. If you’re in Control and you go to Content and then under Content Types, click on Articles, it should be showing you a list of all topics which are articles. However, any post that was originally an article and is now a question/conversation is still showing up in this view.

 

The expected behavior would be for the topic to be considered a question/conversation in the front end and back end, so when you use these views or filter by content type, these posts are accurately accounted for.
