Cross-day scheduling/dependency Tidal question

I currently have the following cross-day scheduling scenario:
Jobs A, B, & C runs at 4:30 p.m and completes about 5:00 p.m. 
   then the schedule compiles at 5:30 p.m and the day's new schedule begins 6:00 p.m. 
        Job D then runs in the current schedule; but Job D needs Jobs A, B, & C as dependencies.

Is there a way to setup jobs in the current schedule to be dependent upon jobs from the previous day?
The jobs are currently running in Tidal 5.3; we will upgrade to Tidal 6.2 in a few days.

Hi francestrotter,

Hi francestrotter,

There is an option in your job dependency definition

Select Occurrence as Last Occurrence

UNCHECK the box for Relative to group (otherwise, for day)

and set Date Offset = 1 (looks back 1 day, increment value to look back even further)

But see note from context help,

Date OffsetThe number of days in the past to find the job dependency. For example, if Job A runs daily and you want the job to depend on the instance finishing three days ago, specify 3. This value should not exceed the retention history for the job. If it does, the job dependency is never met.
