I use the edge panel a lot to open apps and it doesn't work most of the time for some reason, started happening only recently maybe a month back or less and fix is to reboot the phone and I keep getting sick of doing that. To describe the issue more specifically the apps do show on the panel it's just that when I click nothing happens.

Thank you.

Same here. I can add some contacts, but others won't add. Frustrating

If you delete and reinstall the people edge panel abs add your contacts, it should work. I had a similar issue with some panel malfunctions since OneUI 6.0.

I found the issue!
After the One UI 6 OS update, I got a lot of duplicate device contacts created. Find the conctact that cannot be added, edit it and see if you see duplicate entries. Delete all the extra device entries created and your contact will now show up again in the People's panel.

This worked. The contact I was unable to add was stored on 2 accounts. All I had to do was unlink one location and bingo the contact was added

Edge panels are constantly breaking and needing to be reset. This is a fundamental navigational feature of the phone and is currently so broken that it's effectively useless. 

This bug utterly destroys the entire core of the UX of the phone as a whole. The lack of response to this problem is also incredibly concerning, and has made me seriously question ever spending money on a Samsung phone again.

Abhorrent lack of QA and the longer Samsung does nothing to fix or address this, the more people will just give up and move away from their brand as they cannot use basic functions of their phone.

Mine too.
It's so much clicking and swiping to get to styff. The keyboard is too sensitive, text is hard to read, emojis look like the has DSyndrome. And they refuse to roll it back. The system looks ugly and finctionality is reduced. My caps lock randomly turns on. Being better than an iPhone isn't saying much.

I had the same problem with the edge panel functions. The fix is to go to that app in the Galaxy store, Uninstall it, and then reinstall it. That did the trick for mine

I've got two Edge panels that want me to unlock my phone even though the phone IS unlocked. My other Edge panels are okay.
So far what I found in lieu of clearing a cache, turning them off and back on in the settings resets them. But it is quite annoying.
