Todoist temporarily loses tasks
I have around 8 active projects all with tasks in them. Several times in the last couple of weeks I've encountered a situation where all of the tasks suddenly disappear for one of my projects (usually the top one in the list I believe).
The left hand project summary area still shows the number of tasks in the project, but the main window says 'You have no tasks in this project'. Hitting refresh doesn't work, I usually have to close the browser and reopen it. I'm not anything silly with task filters or anything like that - this is a genuine problem and highly annoying!
I've encountered the problem in Chrome, Chrome Incognito mode, IE and also the todoist desktop application.

Please tell me - does this happen after a specific action? For example, after you complete a task, rename the project, move something? If you can trigger it multiple times, please let us know what steps you take to do so so we can reproduce it.

It's not easy to reproduce, it just happens occasionally (every 2/3 days). I believe the sequence of events is usually something like:
* Start from 'view all projects' screen
* Go to specific project view and add some tasks
* Return to all projects - No tasks for modified project, although left hand tab shows a number next to project
* Go back to specific project - Still no tasks. I have to restart my todoist session to get the tasks back
I hope that helps

I list my tasks after work in offline mode. And 2-3 days is all the same.
Please tell me, is this what you do when you encounter this problem?
Click on a project, sort by date (or anything), then click on another project, then click the previous project (where you sorted) it will say "Project has no tasks, add some now!" as if it is empty.
Or you do not sort, only add tasks?

I do not sort, I only add tasks.
If I am online I can't see my tasks added offline, but if I am offline I have my tasks back.

Sorry, I have problems with wifi.
Todoist situation is changing, because now I have also online my tasks... I'll see what would happen tomorrow morning.
