Error rendering macro 'ideation-summary' Edited


As a process improvement operation owner, I want my team to be able to add new ideas to our ideation page, so that we can evaluate and vote on them for further processing.

Best regards,


If clearing the cache as described in our article doesn't fix the problem you should probably contact the vendor of your app. :)

Thanks, Sven. The bug was actually fixed after our vendor made a global update to 6.13.10. There was no need to flush persistence cache memory from the server. Many thanks for your assistance!
