Do it Today on a recurring task

PL

If you select "Do it Today" on a task which is recurring, it won't appear for today's tasks!

For example, It's the 3rd of June and I have an overdue task which recurs on the first of every month. If I click "Do it Today" on that task so it appears in my jobs to do today, it will simply disappear and be marked as "Done" until the next occurrence on 1st July.

This is a bit of a pain. Can it be fixed please?

Hi Peter,

Are you using the web version of Todoist only, or are you experiencing this from other plugins/apps?

Does this only happen on over-due tasks, or does this occur on tasks due in the future?

Thanks,
Brendon.

Hi Brendon,

Yes, this is through the web app. I think it's the same in other apps as well.

I've just tried it on a future task set to recur every Thursday. In this instance it doesn't do anything - the task just stays scheduled for Thursday and doesn't appear in "today's tasks"

Hi Peter,

This is actually a known issue which we hope to address in a future update. For now please do not use "Do It Today" on recurring tasks.

Thanks,
Brendon.

I will take your advice and not use "Do It Today" on recurring tasks - is there a votebox for it, so I can add my +1?

Hi Peter,

No there is not Votebox for it, it's a feature that isn't currently working, so we hope to fix it in the near future.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Hello Peter,

This issue is now fixed - you can use the "do it today" feature on a recurring task and it will not break the recurrence pattern.


Best regards,
David

This is an important fix, and probably worth an email to folks. I've been working around this for a while. Thanks.
