can't clear due data in web app

AM

chrome - I have cleared the due dates on several tasks. And then they reappear. I can clear the dates, then refresh the page and they are all back. I can clear the dates, sleep, come back the next day and they are all back.

Strangely, the dates don't show up on my android phone, just the web app.

All responses

Hello Alice,

Please post an example of a due date that you've removed and confirm if the way you're removing it is by left-clicking on the task to open the input field, navigating to the "due date" field, deleting any text there, making sure nothing's left, not even a space and hitting "Enter" to save the changes.

If that's correct, do you see the sync icon in the top-left corner and is that the moment the date comes back or do you have to refresh the page? Also, does logging out and back in or clearing the cache help?


Best regards,
David

I click on the task to go into edit mode.
I select and delete the date text.
I see the sync bars at the top right of the page.
The date is still gone.
I refresh the page.
The date is back.

This whole time, these tasks never show a due date on my android phone.

I logged out, cleared by cache, and the due dates are not reappearing.

I added a due date to a task.
made sure it showed up on the today list
deleted the due date as before
saw the sync bars
date did not reappear
refreshed the page
date does not reappear

I can't reproduce it anymore. :/
