Tidemark Known Issues

Main content start

Global Calc Frequency & Refresh

Due to recent Tidemark performance issues, the frequency of the Global Calc (which calculates fringe benefits, ISC, IDC, and sponsored revenue) has changed.  It is now being run at 7 am, noon and at 5 pm, instead of every two hours.  Users can still manually run the calculations at will from several entry panels, as needed.  The System will also be refreshed every day during the lunch hour, to avoid the loss of performance in the second half of the day.  Please plan for Tidemark to be unavailable between 12-12:30 each day.

RESOLVED 7/25/22 - Funding the Budget Matrix - Bug in Remaining Balance

The Funding the Budget Matrix has a column that calculates the Remaining Funding Balance after transfers are made but it was not calculating properly.  This has been resolved as of 7/25/2022.

RA/TA Fringe Rates & Action:

  • We now show the RA/TA fringe rate as two rates due to the recent decision to fully subsidize Cardinal Care health insurance for most graduate students. Additional steps have been appended onto the Global Calculations that run on demand or every two hours to account for these changes.
  • If running the Global Calc manually in the Booked Budget process, please note that you should refresh your entry panel only after the final (5 of 5) calculation has completed to see accurate RA/TA numbers (see second image below).
