Postpone on Recurring Task not working.


If I have a task setup to recur "every 1" for the first of the month. If I postpone the current one, the next month it will schedule it for the postponed date instead of the first.

For example this month I have several that were "every 1" scheduled for the 1st of this month. I postponed them and they got the date of Feb 4. When I completed them the next date shows March 4 instead of March 1.

Hello Johnathon,

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this issue. Postponing or completing tasks with the "every 1" formula always seems to push the date to the first day of the next month(s).

Please tell me:
- What version number of Todoist do you see in the URL (the current one is v=90)?
- Does clearing the cache and Todoist's offline data solve this issue?
- Can you reproduce it in at least one different browser (which browsers did you use)?

If none of this helps, please tell me - how exactly are you postponing this task, by dragging and dropping it on the 7 days view, by right-clicking on it, by multi-selecting other tasks?

Best regards,

Ok I see what I did.

I had overdue events that were "every 1" for February 1. I right clicked and choose "do today". When I complete the task it is now scheduled for March 5. However when you edit it, it shows "every 1" in the date field.
