I'm stuck with same problem since 3 months. I have the report in the unfiled public folder and everything is right.
Today I tried to delete the Summary report and redo it. When I created and tried to save the new summary report with the same name as before,
it says: " Report with same name already exists. " I checked several times, the report with this name does not exist.
I guess there is a bug in building this app. Or is there any other fix?
@ Donna Lowe2 : Is your problem fixed?

I'm stuck and not able to finish this project and get the badge.

Any help greatly appreciated.
Thank You!

I keep getting this error:

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
The 'Suggestions: By Status' report is not a Suggestion report type

However, when selecting report type - I quick find suggestion and theres only one there to choose from?

Anyone know what the issue may be here.. 

Thanks

I have the same error "The 'Suggestions: By Status' report is not a Suggestion report type" and I am unable to complete module.  When I went to create report, there was no Suggestions report.  I had to create new custom report type.  User-added image

I had the same issue where there was no report type of Suggestions.  I create a customer report type = suggestions.  However, the challenge then failed me because there was nothign with report type = suggestion.  

Change your report type to Suggestion (no "s").  

That should then work. The instructions in the module don't match what the challenge is looking for.

I just discovered that I had missed a step earlier in the trail. I had not clicked Allow Reports.  Here's where it says to do that earlier in the trail:

On the Custom Object Definition Page, create the object as follows:
Label : Suggestion
Plural Label : Suggestions
Record Name : Suggestion Name
Data Type : Text
Check the Allow Reports checkbox
Check the Launch New Custom Tab Wizard after saving this custom object checkbox.
Leave the defaults for everything else and click Save.
Select the desired Tab style and click on Next, leave the defaults for the remaining fields, click Next and finally Save.
