Bug in reminders

BD

This also happens on the Mac app. I will post screen shots in an email following this question... It's not a question anyway, it's a feature which I know should work, used many times in the recent past, and usually worked but today and yesterday for some weird reason does not work anymore on new tasks. Basically, I can't set recurring reminders for a task.

Ex:
- task: do XYZ - every sunday
- reminder: send email 2 days before

But the feature is grayed out. Instead I only get the fixed date option (ex: 28 Apr)...

Hello, here's screenshots I took where you will see the choice of reminder
dates "specific time / before due date" is grayed out. Why, if it isn't a
bug?

This combo box used to work and I used it often times with no problem. So
what's the deal? I had to used google calendar for now instead, which is a
sad workaround...

Oh and I tried logout and login again, just in case. Still the same. And I
checked my reminder settings (email address etc). All seems fine in there
too. So I really don't understand what's wrong.

Bernie,

Please try sending the screenshots etc to brendon@doist.io as attachments are not included in this support forum.

And to be clear, the task is created for "every sunday" and then in the reminders menu, you can't enter anything?

Regards,
Brendon.
