    How do I "navigate to challenge"?? Wouldn't it be easier if one of the "got an idea, click here" icons took you to the screen where you can fill in the details of your idea?

    I am having trouble trying to submit an idea.

    I have followed the instructions on the step by step and I still can't click on the "submit your idea" text?

    I have tried three times to submit my idea using the mobile version for Waitrose and the submit and save as draft options do not work.

    I am unable to comment or submit an idea. Can anyone tell me what is going wrong? I have tried 3 different browsers and still no luck.


    Update(1/3/17):  I have discovered that if you click on the 'Join Idea Space' button then it allows you to comment.  I hope this helps people!

    I am unable to submit an idea. The Waitrose 'add an idea' seems to work, but the John Lewis one doesn't? Is this because you can only add idea's to your side of the business? If so, then can this be changed please
