Helpful Hints and Fixes

  • NOTE THAT DURING THIS TIME OF UNUSUALLY HIGH BLACKBOARD AND LAT VOLUME you may receive an assignment not mapped error, a login timeout error, a browser cookie error (even though browser cookies are on), and several other weird errors. Please clear your browser cache, make sure you are using only Chrome or Firefox to access LAT. These errors should clear after a few attempts to login in. If not, please contact LAT Support at the email or number below. 
  • Access LAT only through your Blackboard course using only Chrome or Firefox browsers and turn off Pop-up Blocker.
    • Blackboard integration to LAT is not supported on Safari, IE, or Edge. 
    • Using an unsupported browser will result in a timeout or session expired message.
    • If you are not using Chrome or Firefox you may get an error stating: "Authentication is possible but has failed or not yet been provided."
  • If you receive an LTI 1 error, please contact Watermark LAT support (below). 
    • Due to past licensing processes, some students may have a duplicate account in the system that needs to be disabled.
    • This error may also appear if you have recently changed your name with the university system, but have the same email address. 
  • For any login errors not identified above, please call Watermark LAT support (below).
    • The Planning and Assessment Office and UCT Support are unable to assist with account login issues.

    • If there are no assignments in LAT for your course, you will see this message: 

      Currently there is  no Taskstream assignment available for this course. Please contact your course instructor if you know this to be incorrect.
