Due date created when new version released (web app)

RM

I've *finally* been able to confirm what I suspected for a couple of weeks - two tasks that I created yesterday afternoon WITHOUT Due Dates have become overdue once I refreshed my web app Todoist (using the F5 function key) this morning and seeing the version was updated to version 131. Both tasks are shown as having been due yesterday, their day of creation.

Any questions, please ask!


Best regards,
Randy Miller

Hi Randolph,

Which browser are you using?

You created a task that had no due date yesterday, so creation date June 27th. Today that task is shown as overdue, due yesterday.

You believe this happens when there is an update pushed out? We will try to test this ourselves.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Randolph,

Thank you, have you always been using the beta channel of Chrome since this problem started? There is a possibility that this version could be causing issues, as with the other user in the related thread is also using a less used version for Ubuntu.

I will create a task for today without a due date, and see if anything happens in the next couple days, or when an update is pushed, since I am on the stable channel.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Brendon,

As far as I can remember, I've been using the Chrome beta test channel since I started using Todoist. If thats a problem, I'll forgo the beta test channel in favor of a stable Todoist (every time!).

Hello Randolph,

Yes, using a beta version of any browser can always lead to weird behavior or any app. We've had multiple reports in the past about various different issues from users with beta versions of Chrome and so far every time this version of the browser has been released as a stable build, all these issues no longer occurred without us making any changes.

Nonetheless, we're aware of a certain issue that add the creation date of a task note as its due date, therefore, please tell me - have you added a note to this task?


Best regards,
David

David,

Sorry to have 'cross-posted' (I didn't see this 'new thread' open this morning, which is why I added comments to http://todoist.com/Support/showQuestion/4741/; I'll confine further comments to THIS thread.)

Yes; in fact, both Tasks added yesterday that acquired Overdue status this morning had Notes!


Best regards,
Randy Miller

Randy,

In that case - that's most likely the cause of this issue, we're sorry for the inconvenience, we'll fix it very soon.


Best regards,
David

David,

No worries, glad that it's a known issue (and not a figment of my imagination!). Sucks to lose the Karma points, though. :) (again, no worries, I always get them back!)


Best regards,
