Problem: I need to enable ‘content organizer’ in the site feature. However, when I tried activating the “Content Organizer” feature from the SharePoint Online site features page, I 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 error message is kind of misleading! We don’t need to force activating any hidden features. To enable the “content organizer” site feature, activate these two features at the site collection level:
- SharePoint Server Standard Site Collection features
- SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features
Now, try to activate the content organizer feature again, and it should be activated without issues.
