Active/Recent System-Wide Hot Ticket Issues

We are experiencing an error where we are unable to save or update tickets' forms in TDX. It gives us an error message: "No valid choices have been selected for $Feedback: criteria identified." This occurs with newly created tickets, as well as when trying to edit the forms of existing tickets.

No valid choices have been selected for $External Provider." Trying to check the option boxes of "Planned Maintenance" and "External Provider" to work around.

This major incident primarily exists to attach children to in case a fix from Apple resolves them
