Adding New Tasks Doesn't Work Properly

JH

I've tried in latest versions of Chrome and FF on Win7.

When I ctrl+Q or click into the top right corner I can type in the task and set the date, but when I hit enter the box doesn't doesn't disappear and take me to the day the task was added like it used to. If I hit enter again it adds the task twice (or as many times as I hit enter). I have to close the box manually and I'm then redirected to the Priority Tasks page (which is blank).

I love the product, but this is a bit frustrating. Thanks.

Hello Jason,

we're very sorry for the inconvenience, we're working on this issue right now. It seems to affect only the "Quick Add" feature and occurs only if you're using the MM/DD date format.

For now, as a workaround, please try to add tasks from within projects. If you enter the project and then use the "Add task" link at the bottom, this issue will not occur.


Best regards,
David

Thanks David - it actually happens no matter what format I use for date - "Today" or "Tomorrow" does the same thing.

Actually just checked and it does it even if I use the drop-down calendar. Will use the workaround, but would love to see this fixed as this is the primary way I add tasks.

Again, love todoist - it has literally been an organizational life saver for me. Keep it up!

Hello Jason,

I was referring to the date format settings on your account. If you go to Todoist Preferences (gear icon in the top-right corner), you can choose to use a DD-MM-YYYY or a MM-DD-YYYY date format. If you select DD-MM-YYYY, this issue won't occur even if you use dates such as "tomorrow" or pick a day from the mini-calendar.

Again, we're working on solving this issue and apologize for any inconvenience it has caused you.


Best regards,
David

Hello,

this issue has been fixed. Using the "Quick Add" feature will now no longer redirect to the incorrect page and will properly close the input box.


Best regards,
