Why does the app often (not always) open to "Today" when I have set it to a project?

M

I never use "Today" though I do have 2 daily tasks that are always there. In addition to setting my start page to a different project, I also turned off reminders hoping that would solve the problem. No such luck. Thanks.

Hi There,

Reminders are not related to what you see when you start the app, that would be solely on the Start Page you have selected at Todoist.com.

The start page is only when you first start up Todoist, say after you first turn on your device, and then open Todoist. If you have had Todoist open, and it's been 5 minutes, or such, then it will open back to the last place you were, I am going to assume you might have been on your Today view. If you were to close Todoist (swipe it to the right, recent apps) and re-open it, it would go to your chosen Start Page again.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Thanks for the quick response. The only time Today is ever seen on my device is because it is opened automatically by the app. I don't use it as part of my workflow and would never see it otherwise (the two daily tasks are in my principal project but are automatically included in the Today view because they have recur daily. Oddly, the app does not open consistently to the Today view. I would say it is a 50-50 breakdown between that and the project I have set.

Hi,

Have you seen this happen when opening up the web version as well, or is this only on Android?

It is possible that those two tasks are causing some type of glitch even though it would be rare. If you are willing, a good way to test this would be to delete/remove those two tasks, and re-create them (on the web version). First, if possible for you, remove them and test it for a day, see if it happens, if it doesn't, re-create them and see if it starts again.

I have so far not seen any instances where the Today view would pop-up randomly without someone causing it themselves, so this is quite interesting.

If that is too much testing, please try clearing the data for the android app, and then logging back in.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Just the Android app - the web app always opens to the project I have set. I'll delete them and see what happens.

I wonder if the glitch could be a result of me completely ignoring two daily tasks for something like a month. In any event, will see if deleting them helps.
