The use of special characters within the title of a incident results in an incident being unable to be worked by anyone. Additionally, the use of the ':', '<' or '>' special characters results in no task being associated with the incident ticket.
To resolve this issue you need to modify the SD.Feeder.GeneralIncidentSubmitForm and SD.Feeder.TechnicianForms workflow projects to filter out the offending special characters before the creation of the incident ticket. Please download the attached PDF and implement the steps outlined.
