The Edit area is where you will name your Item, add Questions and Features, and apply columns.
The Item Reference will appear on the top left of the Item. This will only be visible to authors.

These numbers are editable and must only contain ASCII printable characters, except double quotes, single quotes with no more than 150 characters.
