Fix: "The Site scoped feature being activated has a dependency on hidden Site Collection scoped feature" Error on Content Organizer

Problem: I need to enable 'content organizer' in site feature. However, when I tried activating the "Content Organizer" feature from SharePoint Online site features page, got an error message:

The Site scoped feature being activated has a dependency on hidden Site Collection scoped feature 'FeatureDefinition/15/0c8a9a47-22a9-4798-82f1-00e62a96006e' (ID: '0c8a9a47-22a9-4798-82f1-00e62a96006e'). Hidden features cannot be auto-activated across scopes. There may be one or more visible Site Collection scoped features that auto-activate the dependent hidden feature.
The Site scoped feature being activated has a dependency on hidden Site Collection scoped Feature

Solution:
The error message is kind of misleading! We don't need to force activate any hidden features. To enable "content organizer" site feature, Activate these two features at site collection level:
  1. SharePoint Server Standard Site Collection features
  2. SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features
Now, give a try to activate content organizer feature again, It should activate without issues.
