When opening a page via the navigation bar and choose the option to add this page to the homepage, a tile will appear on the homepage directing the user to that page.
When users already navigated to the page via the navigation in the same login session, he/she will be able to open the page via the tile as well without any issue.
However, when the user logs out, and logs in afterward, and goes directly to the tile, he/she can’t access the page and gets a “first operand is null” error.
Only after the user first navigates again to the page via the navigation bar, and afterward clicks on the tile again, the user will be able to access the page via the tile.
