8/5: Data Issue with Mid-year salaries

We have identified a data issue with midyear salary increases in Tidemark that we need to make you aware of. On the "Set Salary by Position" panel, there is a column that shows the Midyear Month, and a column that shows the Midyear Increase Amount. Currently, the Midyear Increase Amount column is showing midyear increases for 2020 as well as Midyear increases from 2019. Unfortunately, we are not able to quickly remove the 2019 data, so we wanted to let you know how to identify it and plan around it.

Here's an example of what you will see in Tidemark:

Midyear Salary Image

You can tell that Ima Right really does have an FY20 midyear increase scheduled, because she has the month shown (February) and a dollar amount ($2,000).
I.R. Wrong does not have an FY 20 midyear increase scheduled, because although he as a dollar amount ($1,500), he does not have a Midyear Month. The $1,500 was actually his midyear increase from FY 19.

If you use the seeding action:  "Seed Position with Proposed Salary + Midyear Increase" the system will correctly seed your budget, using only the midyear increases from 2020.



The Tidemark system's normal maintenance window is 10:30 pm - 6:45 am the next morning. This maintenance includes a daily “reboot” of all services and aims to improve system performance throughout the remainder of the day.

Additionally, manual processes are run in the system Monday evenings 7:30 - 10 pm, and all day Sunday. The system will still be up during these times, but you will experience additional slowness during these times, and may want to schedule accordingly.
