Moreover when i try to add or edit a task on a date that has passed places it in 2013 whatever i do.
please tell me - what's the exact due date format you're using?
Also, if you want to set up a task for the past, please include the year. For example:
20 Jun 2012
every day starting 20. Jun 2012
The same thing is happening to me now. If you use the calendar to select a date (e.g. 29 July 2012, it removes the year and displays 29 Jul. Hitting save will save it as 29 July 2013.
you can set a task to a past date by including the full year within the due date. If you type 29 Jul 2012 manually, it will set the task to the exact date.
Yes, that is correct, but picking the date from the calendar should achieve the same thing but it wasn't doing that. I selected 29 July 2012 from the calendar but when saving it the date was set to 2013.
thank you for reporting this issue, it's indeed not possible to pick a past date from the calendar. We will address it in the future.
For now, please use only manual date input for past dates.
