Adding task due date on nonEnglish devices
Everyday | Today | Tomorrow => all work fine
The problem occurs with the last offered option on nonEN devices => The name of the day
is localized and therefore will not be recognized as valid.
My suggestion is to enforce EN day names, rather than using the localized ones.
Please tell me:
- What exact due date did you try to use?
- What language are you using?
- What version of Android are you using?
-any of the "named" due dates coses trouble: Mon-Sun, due to the fact that these are being suggested in different language...
I'm having the same issue with swedish days. All week: Måndag, tisdag, onsdag, torsdag, fredag, lördag, söndag.
Android version: 4.0.3
Model; HTC one V
Please note that we currently support the following languages: German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified).
In these languages, it should be possible to use regional dates, in any other language, you must type in an English date.
The language settings on your phone should not affect the suggested dates in our app. I can't reproduce this issue. When using a different language, tapping within the "due date" field shows: Everyday, today, tomorrow, Monday in English as suggestions. Typing in any other English date also correctly adds it to the task.
> in any other language, you must type in an English date.
Correct. Why do you suggest a due date that is not supported by your app? :D
> The language settings on your phone should not affect the suggested dates in our app.
Unfortunately they do on mine as well as on Peters. All week: pondělí, úterý, středa, čtvrtek, pátek, sobota, neděle.
> Typing in any other English date also correctly adds it to the task.
Indeed, when I make manual, not the suggested input it works fine.
Please clarify - what suggested input are you referring to? If you're referring to your phone's native suggestions that auto-complete any word you type in, then unfortunately, we don't have any influence on them as they're controlled by Android for every input field of every app.
Well I get the suggestions "from the app" when I tap the No due date field. | Everyday | Today | Tomorrow | måndag |
nope. I'm not referring to the word autocomplete. I'm referring to suggestions that are displayed when you move cursor to the "No due date" labeled field.
Try the following:
change the language from English to any other language => start the app => hit + sign in order to create new task => fill in Task name and project => move the cursor to the "No due date" labeled field
Now, what is the last suggestion? Monday in the language you have chosen right? Hit that and try to save the task. You should see an error saying: "We couldn't understand your due date". That is the issue.
Same here Peter | Everyday | Today | Tomorrow | pondělí |
Thank you for the clarification and sorry for the misunderstanding, I've been able to reproduce this issue now. I will pass it to the developers and we'll look into it.
Good! Thanks for your help David and good luck with persuading the DEV guys that this is really is a mistake not an intention. Sry just kidding :D
unfortunately this is reoccurring bug :(
Has been fixed in previous version, reoccurred in v1.0.5.
Thank you for your report, I have passed this issue to the developers. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I got this once again... Todoist version 2.0.9. Android version 4.0.3.
When I add tasks I get due date pre filled with "Idag". (Today in Swedish). Since Swedish isn't supported I have to erase that and add a new proper date. When I tap the field I get the suggestions in Swedish (Idag| Imorgon| Varje dag| mer...) which is useless. So I must use the calendar
Is there a way to force English settings? Any help would be appreciated
We're sorry for the inconvenience, the date settings are based on the language settings of your phone. We will add full Swedish support very soon and this will solve this problem.
other option we could take which I would prefer:
Create new parameter in the settings (as other apps do) "Enforce English GUI".
What are your thoughts David?
We'll keep this in mind for future updates. You're also welcome to add this as a request to our Votebox at http://todoist.com/Vote_Android/
