Task time can't be set correctly
I'm suddenly having a lot of trouble getting my task times set correctly. I've done this very successfully many times before.
My time zone setting is correct -- UTC - 7 for the US/Pacific Zone, but I've also tried UTC-7 for America/LosAngeles (it is currently DST here).
For example, I'm creating a repeating task with a reminder, by putting this into the date field:
ev 14 days starting May 2 @ 2100
Because I want to do this task at 9pm every two weeks on Thursday night.
However, when I click save, the time part of the display is set to 23:59.
I've tried changing the time to "@ 9pm", "@ 21:30", and "@ 9 am", and even just "@ 9", but it always gets changed to 23:59.
Try your parameter as [ev 14 days at 21:00 starting may 2]; I believe that you need the TIME before the DATE.
Randolph is correct. If you enter "ev 14 days at 21:00 starting may 2" it will input the time correctly.
The other way is an issue, and I am able to reproduce this problem. I will pass this on to the developers.
Okay, thanks for the workaround. I'll change my parameter.
This used to work. I discovered the problem when I was modifying an existing task that had a time set for 21:00 and I wanted to change it to 20:00, and it didn't "take."
i think issue is using "@" versus "at".
Testing shows the use of "@" versus "at" makes no difference - if the time is after the date, it's set as 23:59; if before the date, it's set correctly :)
