Challenge issues

I have provided the default "Treehouse" value for the hello function, why do I still get error " '/' without a name gave a non-200 response "

Can anyone point out my mistakes! Thanks

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/<name>')
def hello(name="Treehouse"):
    return 'Hello {name}'.format(name=name)

You seem to be replacing the route @app.route('/'). The challenge asked you to add a route. Remember, views (or controllers, by preferred way of calling it) can have multiple routes.
