I can't enter a "Due Date" using Outlook calendar function.
If I click on Due Date in Add Task Menu the Calendar-Box opens, but then after clicking on a particular date the calendar is closing - but no date is set.
Just via "manual date input" (typing) it works properly.
I am using:
Windows 7, 64 bit

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this issue. Please tell me:
- What exact due date are you picking from the calendar?
- How are you adding the task - using the"Quick Add" feature or the "Add task" link within a project?
- What version of Internet Explorer do you have installed on your computer (the Outlook plugin always uses IE to connect)?
I can send you some screenshots, if you give me your email address. (you can send it to my google account)
Nevertheless here are the details:
- doesnt matter which date im picking, it never works
- if I am open the task and then click into the "Date field" a small calender box opens. (doesn't look for me like an IE feature, btw.)
then I am clicking in, but no date will be added to task...
- IE 9.0
Regarding your second answer - so you're opening an existing task and adding a date to it (while it didn't have a date originally) and not adding a new task nether through Quick Add or the "Add task" link?
You're welcome to send screenshots to firstname.lastname@example.org
I face the exact same problem as Markus. I also use IE9/Win 7, but Outlook 2010.
I know it worked once, but since a few weeks it doesn't anymore.
When you click on the date you wish in the little calendar, the date field is emptied, instead of filled. I wonder whether it's a laguange problem? In Switzerland we use the German language. So far I didn't try any other language settings in Windows.
When I enter a date manually, it would only accept following format: "23/1 2013" for 23rd of January 2013. Things like "23 Jan" don't work anymore (error message "ungültiges Datum" --> "invalide date").
Since I use the ToDoIst add-in every day (Premium), I would appreciate a solution very much.
Thanks so much,
Thank you very much for this information, I've been able to reproduce this issue now. It seems to occur only in the non-English versions.
Markus, could you please confirm if you're also using Todoist in a different language than English?
I have forwarded this issue to the developers and we'll try to fix this issue as soon as we can. Sorry for the inconvenience.
