Changing project name is not shared

PP

Hi,

On shared projects I made a few mistakes in the names and I would like to change the name of the projects. It does work on my computer, but my colleagues still see the old projectname, wich is very confusing. Is it possible that this can be updated to every body in the project?

Hi Peter,

If they log out, and back in again. That is, log out on iOS, clear the data for Android. Or clear the cache of the browser they are using, and log back in. Does it still show the incorrect project name?

Regards,
Brendon.

We all work in the browser chrome, and tried it with clearing the cache, but it still stays wrong.

Peter,

Were these originally projects created a few weeks ago, or are they all new ones? As we had to change some things recently, and re-creating the projects may resolve the issue.

Regards,
Brendon.

Most of the projects were created 1 week ago, but its also with a project we created 1 hour ago.
I created a project calling it 'A'. I invited a colleague, he accepts and sees A.
I then change the name to 'B', the colleague doesn't see the change.
I tried to re-invite the colleague to the project, but it says 'waiting' and he doesn't get an invite.

Thanks for looking into this

Hi,

Did you have the time to look into this?

Hello Peter,

According to our developers, that's actually by design. Not all properties are being synced so the change of a project's name or color will not sync across the collaborators so that they can choose their own colors or modify the project names as they want.

We will consider changing this, though and you're welcome to request it in our Votebox: https://todoist.com/Vote/


Best regards,
David

How is the status about changing project name automatically when shared? (I feel this being more of a bug than a feature...) Any input would be valuable, thanks.

Hi Lars,

Once shared, the project name can be change to something else without affecting other users project name. This allows for each user to customize the list they want to. :-)

Please keep it this way, otherwise I will have a number of "Work" projects without any info of which co-worker they belong to. :-)

OK, thanks for the reply - we then know.

We need to re-think on how we have all projects, which most likely will lead to that a project ID cannot be in the project name as we have it today - we need to move it to a separate task or similar. There are situations when we need to change the ID and if it's not changed in the project name field, the change will not end up at any user.
