FactSet Fundamental Data update

I am using FactSet Fundamental Data to evaluate Brazilian companies. When a I try to get data after June 2018, call this error - Data is available up to 2018-06-10, but was requested up to 2018-07-02. Reading the https://www.quantopian.com/docs/data-reference/factset_fundamentals#methodology "Point-in-Time" I really didn't understand when the data is updated. For example, fundamental data from September 2018 quarterly reports should already been published, but there are not available, so when should be available? And when should be available the 2018 anual report? I would really appreciate some help with this point

Thanks

For some of the FactSet data, there is a 1 year holdout. Much of the data is available up to the present day, but some datasets have the last 1-2 years of data hidden. See this https://www.quantopian.com/docs/data-reference/overview#holdout-periods.

The up to date data is used in the contest (so contest entries can use any of the FactSet data) but there is a 1 year holdout when testing and research in the IDE and Notebook environments.

Thanks Dan,

so, to have access to more recent data we should use Quantopian Enterprise, right?

Thanks again
