    I was able to reproduce the issue on my end. I think this only happens with you form. I tried to clone your form but still can't edit the report but when I tried to use a different form I was able to edit. I have forwarded this to our developer team to further investigate. 

    In the mean time while we are waiting can you try to clone your form and see you can edit a visual report I haven't tried cloning your form in your account. I just did test it on my end but not yet in your account.

    Thank you for the response. I have tried cloning my report but the Visual Report still will not allow me to edit. It appears to be the only report that doesn't work. Can you provide me an update once this has been resolved?

    It turns out that the issue is because of the matrix fields which is currently NOT Labeled with a single word. Can you please add at least one word question to the matrix fields? After that, try to re-create the Visual Report. See if that fixes the issue and will confirm my findings.

    You form contains two matrix fields.

    I added a label to each matrix and it worked. Thank you so much!
