Review Future Tasks for Date Errors

GK

This is just a general question - across any platform. I must have had a bad day or two as I've discovered a couple of tasks that I erroneously moved to March of 2015 when they should be this current month (2014). Is there a way to view far future tasks, perhaps by month, just to review on occasion to ensure that tasks have not been essentially lost due to a date error like this? I know you can search '20 days', '60 days', etc., but I wouldn't want to review a whole year comprehensively, just a month or two in the distant future.

Hi,

Where did you add these tasks, as there is a small issue with such feature on iOS that we are looking into, so it may not have been you.

As for finding them, well you can always use "view all" and that will show all tasks. You can also type in the exact date and it will find those tasks. The only other option is as you said, 60 days, etc.

Of course, also looking directly at the project it was added too.

Regards,
Brendon.

I honestly don't know where it was added from - either my iPad or online using Chrome. I've just caught them as I remembered a task, wondered where it was/when it was coming up and then typed in a key word search. If I didn't know what I was looking for, it would have been highly challenging using the available search methods. I just thought that perhaps it's something I should verify every so often as this seemed to happen too easily without my having any idea - I'm still not sure how they jumped ahead a year unless I mistakenly chose a date in the past. Thanks.

Hello G,

We suspect it might have been caused by editing an overdue task via iOS. Unlike on the web, the iOS app will mistakenly omit the year in the auto-populated date field. So if the task is due "20 Mar 2014" and you edit it on iOS, it will have just "20 Mar" in the date field. If you then save the changes today on 24 Mar, it will move the task to the next available 20 Mar which is 20 Mar 2015.

This will be corrected in version 8.1.1 of our iOS app. For now, to quickly find these tasks, please go to the "view all" page and use your browser's own search option (Ctrl+F) to look for "2015" as these tasks will display the year.


Best regards,
David

I've had this issue, too. Although, for me it usually changes it just to the wrong month (ie: April 14 becomes July 14)

Great idea for the search workaround, David - thank you!!!
