Outlook plugin constantly resetting view to today view
I really like the outlook plugin, but it constantly changes the view from the current project I have selected to the today view which I don't really use.
It looks like this occurs every time it refreshes the task list. Is there a way to prevent this?

We will soon release an updated version of our Outlook plugin which will feature many bug fixes. We have a pre-release build which you can download and install from: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/18dd6b9fb4508bfdd09fc8fb17464c91/as/OutlookTodoist.RC.zip
Please let us know if it solves this issue and if not, please clarify - what are the exact steps to reproduce this issue? Do you click on "Show project", choose a project and in this moment you get redirected back to the "today" list?
Yes, we've made a new version and you can install it from here: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/6d48d3aaeb65b9bca3dc3068008d08ec/as/OutlookTodoist.RC.exe we'll soon release another update and announce it officially, but for now, please try to use this version and let us know if the issue persist.
Thanks. I downloaded the latest and it seems like it may have fixed the jumping around when clicking on the tasks, but not when expanding/collapsing . See the video I uploaded here http://youtu.be/DTBUuBYYiT0
Also, I was doing some more testing and checking off tasks is also jumping around so I'm consistently closing out the wrong ones.
Thank you very much for the video, we've been able to partially reproduce this issue and we'll try to fix it in the next update. Unfortunately, we're unsure why your tasks have disappeared at some point, but we'll also look into this (note - none of the tasks was lost, it must have been a visual glitch). If you experience the issue (vanishing tasks) again, please try to use the reload button at the bottom and let us know if it helps.
Was there by change any updates since last month? For now I have had to revert to breaking up my task lists into more groups because I am still having lots of issues clicking on things when there is a scroll bar. I would be glad to continue testing out the latest beta/release candidate.
Please install this version: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/1edb5e32790186f1ded825549e63bfb3/as/OutlookTodoist.Adx.RC.exe which is the latest RC and should address all reported issues. Let us know if this problem persists.
Thanks. I just installed it. One thing I noticed right away is that I'm having issues dragging tasks around. The tasks are create yellow boxes like it's going to go in that location but they never go away. See this screenshot:
One other thing I noticed after playing around with this version for a bit is now I'm getting a lot of blank tasks which didn't happen before.
-click add task
-type task name and press enter so another new task entry box will be active
-click on another task
-an empty task will be saved
You can get the latest release candidate from this location: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/23ba6af99340be5655be8317812129dd/as/OutlookTodoist.Adx.RC.exe
They sure do. It's not quite as bad though compared to outlook because the yellow boxes don't cause the dragged item to constantly jump around.
Here is a screenshot after trying to move a few tasks:
