Broken link because of URL redirect

PM

Last week I added a bookmark to Todoist but now it's broken. I think it's down to the version number in your URL redirect.
My bookmark goes to https://todoist.com/app?v=76#start which just sits with the busy animated gif, whereas today todoist.com redirects to https://todoist.com/app?v=77#start which works.

Hello Paul,

Please always use https://todoist.com as the URL in your bookmark to avoid such issues and make sure that you will always use the latest version of our service as you always get redirected to the appropriate URL.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Sure. I'd worked that out. I was really giving you a heads up that most people will bookmark a page as they see it and that will result in a lot of broken bookmarks.

Better not to have a URL that can become broken than having to train users to behave in a non-intuitive way?

Cheers,
Paul.

Paul,

We're aware of the risk of using updated URLs, but this is the only way that enables us to make sure that everyone has the same latest version of Todoist. Of course we will try to improve this system in the future.


Best regards,
David
