Published surveys not really published?

Survey123 (v3.17) is not showing completed publish command. 

Publish a survey & "Published successfully!" message appears, but the red dot still visible on the Publish tab.

Go to Collaborate to share survey and this error message is at top of page: "The survey has changes that have not been published yet. Users can see these changes only after you publish the survey in Design page." 

See screenshots below:

Hello @LoriDelacruzLewis

I would suggest reaching out to Esri Technical Support to take a closer look, you may be running into BUG-000154545 or BUG-000154641. 

Thank you,

I have the exact same issue.  I know it's saved and published, and it's working fine...but that message keeps showing up.

Same here. The survey (v 3.17) publishes successfully but the next time I log into Survey123 I get "The survey has changes that have not been published yet..." warning. It happens even if I clear my web browser's cache. Is there a way we can look up the bugs @ZacharySutherby lists above?
