can't remove time and reminder

MF

I have a task with a specific date and time in addition to a reminder. I want to change it to keep only date. I do this by either:
- choosing discard time from pick date option.
Or
- deleting the reminder first then choosing discard time from pick date option.

But either ways don't apply and the time & reminder is still shown

Please help

Hello Mohamed,

Please try to delete the reminder manually in the reminders menu and then, instead of using a date picker, simply remove the time within the due date filed just as if you would edit and remove a regular text.

If this won't help, please tell me what's the date and time of the task and the reminder?


Best regards,
David

Hi David,



Removing the time as text works well (but only after removing the reminder from menu).



I believe this is a bug that needs adjustment (mainly with discard time). Am I correct?

Mohamed,

I have tested it now on our latest beta release which you can of course also try if you like by signing-up for it through our Google+ Beta Community: https://plus.google.com/communities/108057919781399570441

So when I've tested it, I have:
1. Added a task due "today at 18:45"
2. The task got its default "30 minutes before" reminder
3. I then tap on the task, go to Edit -> tap on calendar -> pick date -> discard time -> OK -> Done
4. The time is correctly being removed from this task.
5. The reminder stays.

That said, it seems that the only issue is point 5 since the reminder shouldn't exist if the task has no time as it's a relative reminder. I'll pass this to the developers.


Best regards,
David

Mohamed,

This issue will be fixed in the next update. That is - discarding the time will not also remove the relative reminder.


Best regards,
David
