Limited to 15 tasks per Priority?

Are we limited to 15 items per priority level? I tried to change my @NEXT tag to p2 but once I changed 15 tasks, Todoist stopped allowing me to change my items, reverting them back to their previous priority, p3.

Oh... I also now can't remove the p2 from the 15 tasks I set with it. Chrome, Windows app, or iOS. None will let me remove that p2.

Hello Devon,

There is no limitation to how many tasks can have a certain priority or label. Please let me know how exactly (step-by-step) did you make these changes? For example, did you go to the 7 days view and right-clicked on each task to select the priority? Did you go to the project view and edited these tasks by adding !p1 into their names?

Best regards,

I think it might be a connection issue... I'm struggling to get priorities I apply to stick. I was able to remove the p2's eventually, but now if I try to add them again, they disappear once I refresh. Here's an example of it: http://gyazo.com/04b107e45e1548dead76c6696b887863

As soon as the app refreshes, it removes the edits I've made. So far I only see this when modifying the priority on the task - all other edits seem to stick right away.

I've now tried it via the ... menu, typing !p2 in, and clicking the task to edit, and then selecting the flag. All three undo themselves as soon as the application refreshes.

Do you see the sync icon go off (bottom right)? Do you see an triangle instead? As if it's not accepting the change, then it's not syncing the information.

If you try this on another browser, same issue?

I tried it on Chrome, Firefox, Windows app, and iOS app (on wifi) while at work today, and all had the same issue. The triangle never appeared, but I would get maybe 1 in 10 changes to stick. Since arriving at home I've not had a single issue, however.

Seems it's not a Todoist problem, but a connection issue. Thanks for the assistance, though!
