Date Format Shows as Invalid for Reminders

PM

I have a task that is recurring on the 1st day every month. I use this format;

"every first day month"

Which works, however, when I enter this format into the field to set a reminder ToDoist reports the date as invalid. I am trying to set the following;

"every first day month @7pm"

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hello Peter,

only date formats listed here: https://todoist.com/Help/timeInsert are fully supported by Todoist.

"Every first day month" is not a supported format. Please use "every 1" or "ev 1" instead.


Best regards,
David

OK - "every 1 day" works for the reminder, thanks.

FYI "every first day" works the same for the actual task though.

Peter,

although "every 1 day" may be accepted by the system, it's not guaranteed to work properly as it's not a supported date format.

Please use "every 1" (without the "day" at the end) instead.


Best regards,
David
