Google Calendar Date Shifting
I have never had an issue syncing with Google Calendar before, but starting this morning, all my Todoist items are shifted one day forward (what I have scheduled Sunday is showing on Monday, and so on). Todoist still shows the correct dates though. Is there a solution? Or should I contact Google support (and cross my fingers that I'll get some kind of response)?

Yesterday we've migrated our database to a better structure and for a short while some users unfortunately, might have experienced and issue with due dates/timezones, but it's been fixed shortly thereafter. Theoretically it's possible that Google might have synchronized your calendar in this short time when this happened.
Please try to re-add the iCal feed or see if the issue persists tomorrow or, if you have such option, try importing the feed to a different calendar software (Outlook, iCalendar etc.) to see if this problem also occurs there.
Hm, I just observed a similar behavior when syncing the osx client. The tasks I have added during today's afternoon have been shifted one day in the web client and on Android, but not on my osx client. Manual syncing didn't help. I had to change the dates in the web client which. The next sync put everything back to order. I hope that doesn't happen again - if I hadn't checked the projects manually I would've forgotten some really important things tomorrow^^. I suppose that also had something to do with the database migration although it should've been finished by that time - hope there is not another problem lingering around now...

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately none of your suggestions fixed the issue. I first waited until today to see if it would resync and correct, but the problem persisted. Then I tried deleting and re-adding the feed but it came back with the dates still all shifted a day ahead.
I tested to see if it was Google by importing the calendar into Outlook and found the same problem there as well.
