Date is wrong - email to ToDoist

A

I sent an email with subject "@DFA Newsletter <date Mar 11> <remind Mar 04 at 11am> ".

The task was assigned a deadline of March 12. Everything else was correct.

Does ToDoist hate Mondays?

I've had no other email-to-task issues EXCEPT for trying to assign a deadline on a Monday. Very strange...

FYI: Settings > Week is set to start on Sundays.

Also, I just tried to apply a deadline on Sunday from email and it changed the deadline to Monday.

Example:
@DFA Newsletter <date Jul 28> <remind Jul 22 at 11am>
...but the deadline was applied to July 29. The 28th is a Sunday; 29th is a Monday.

Further update:
It's not just Sundays and Mondays. It's everything I send through email is changed to a day later.

Bummer :(

Hello Ann,

Unfortunately, we can't reproduce this issue. The task I've send with the exact same content was scheduled for the correct date.

Please tell me - do you have the correct time zone selected in Todoist Settings and on your computer?

Also, please try to:
1. Send a task via email with a <date Mar 11 @ 2pm> and let me know what date and what time it will show on Todoist.
2. Add a task to Todoist directly with the same date and time and let me know if it gets saved with the correct date/time.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Thanks for trying to help!

The time zone on my computer, Todoist, and my Google account (which I sometimes use to log-in) are all set to Eastern (UTC -5).

I used the subject line "@Test Test <date Mar 11 @ 2pm>"

1. Wrong. A test task was scheduled for March 11 at 3pm.
https://todoist.com/app?v=91#agenda/

2. Yes, it is correct. Any time I've done something in the browser, it's spot on :)

Let me know if you need my log-in credentials to figure out why my account is such an anomaly re: email to task. I'm not sure what setting I've screwed up so please let me know if there's something else I should try.

Thanks!

Ann,

Unfortunately, we can't reproduce this issue, but we'll check if there are any incorrect time settings on our end related to your account.

Also, please tell me - do you have MM-DD-YYYY selected in your Todoist's settings as well as the 12-hour am/pm time format?


Best regards,
David

Hello Ann,

This issue should be fixed now. Please try to send a couple of test tasks via email and let me know if you're still experiencing it.


Best regards,
David
