How can I resolve this?
Resolution You need to make sure that the publisher action that you're trying to invoke using your Macro is available in the layout.

In this example, the Email action is not available in the layout so the Macro cannot execute.

Editing the feed-based layout and making the Standard Email Action available will resolve this issue.
