HSIP System Release (August 19, 2014) - Known Issues:

An HSIP system release was moved to the production environment on Tuesday, August 19, 2014. Several unintended issues arose as a result of the migration, and we are working with ITS to fix them as soon as possible.

As of August 25, 2014, the known issues are:

  • Individuals listed as Alternate Approvers are not able to access an HSIP request on which they are an Alternate Approver.
    • Status - A fix has been validated in the test environment, and should be moved to the production environment soon.
  • "Files Attached" checkbox is active (i.e., checked) even when no attachments are present in the request form.
    • Status - ITS investigating.
  • Individuals listed as Alternate Custodians are not able to access an HSIP request on which they are listed as an Alternate Custodian. This functionality allows alternate custodians to attach documents to the HSIP request form.
    • Status - ITS investigating.
  • Delivery information (address, city, state, etc.) fields disappear when requesting a Check payment sent to the Researcher.
    • Status - Incident submitted to ITS.
  • Total Coupon Amount error (25712,89). The error is meant to alert the requestor that the Total Incentive Amount in the HSIP request is less than the number of coupons requested times the maximum amount to be paid per subject. The system should allow the request to be submitted after generating the alert, but is not.
    • Status - Incident submitted to ITS.
  • HSIP requests listed more than once in the HSIP Home Page.
    • Status - Resolved.

If you experience additional issues when working in the HSIP system, or if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
