Could you keep "@time" when changing the date, please?

Hi,

e.g. I have the following due date (German):
8/1 2013 um 09:00

When I want to change the date to (postpone to) "9/1 2013 um 09:00" the time is not taken. The result is "9/1 2013".

I think it would be better to keep the time than to release my mouse for typing the same time again.

GTD also means for me being effective when using tools, mouse and keyboard (or a touch interface).

What do you think?

Regards,
Meinhard

Hello Meinhard,

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this issue. I've tried to use the exact same date, then I right-clicked on the task and have chosen "Hinausschieben" to postpone the task and it has been moved to the next day maintaining the time.

Then, I've tried to drag & drop the task in the 7 days view from one day to another and it also got postponed correctly maintaining the time.

Please clarify - is this how you've tried to postpone the task or did you use a different method? Did you multi-select the task?


Best regards,
David

Hello David,

I`m sorry, I did not describe carefully how I did it.

I did not use the postpone function in the submenu.
I left-click a task. I left-click the date field and choose another date in the calendar. I was of the opinion that the time remained after that.

But now I´m not sure anymore if I am right... *confused*

Best regards,
Meinhard

Meinhard,

Thank you for clarifying. Choosing a new date from the calendar will indeed remove the time because this option should only be used if you want to completely reschedule a task in which case keeping the time would force anyone who want to change it to manually delete the time when selecting the date.

If you want to postpone a task, please use one of the methods described above - either the "Hinausschieben" option or, in the 7 days view, drag & drop the task to postpone it.


Best regards,
David
