~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The first outage, created on April 28th set to begin on May 1st and end on May 3rd, suffered from a bug present at the maintenance level installed on your node at the time (FX24932). The remaining outages created/deleted while the patch level was at the most recent level, FX25010, were created retroactively (i.e. the start time for the outage had already past), and therefore were not taken into consideration. Outages can only be scheduled for a future date/time, as we were able to reproduce in our environment.
Resolution:
In order to create an outage to affect all tasks, you may create a new general outage scheduled for one minute in the future.
As soon as the start time is passed, the Calculator engine will recalculate all active tasks.

Please note, however, that there is no way to back out of an outage in this version of Dollar Universe; if you set the outage to last until May 3rd 23:59, all tasks will be recalculated to begin after that time and will not be recalculated even if the outage is deleted.
