Create from template button not working

We created a meeting template in one of our space.

We added a button using "Create from template" macro that creates a page from our meeting template.

But everytime any user clicks on the button a dialogue shows up, but nothing happens.

Even from the left sidebar, when we select the template it does nothing, when we hit Create.


We are on the cloud version of Atlassian/Confluence.
