Adding task due date on nonEnglish devices
Everyday | Today | Tomorrow => all work fine
The problem occurs with the last offered option on nonEN devices => The name of the day
is localized and therefore will not be recognized as valid.
My suggestion is to enforce EN day names, rather than using the localized ones.

Please note that we currently support the following languages: German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified).
In these languages, it should be possible to use regional dates, in any other language, you must type in an English date.
The language settings on your phone should not affect the suggested dates in our app. I can't reproduce this issue. When using a different language, tapping within the "due date" field shows: Everyday, today, tomorrow, Monday in English as suggestions. Typing in any other English date also correctly adds it to the task.
> in any other language, you must type in an English date.
Correct. Why do you suggest a due date that is not supported by your app? :D
> The language settings on your phone should not affect the suggested dates in our app.
Unfortunately they do on mine as well as on Peters. All week: pondělí, úterý, středa, čtvrtek, pátek, sobota, neděle.
> Typing in any other English date also correctly adds it to the task.
Indeed, when I make manual, not the suggested input it works fine.
Please clarify - what suggested input are you referring to? If you're referring to your phone's native suggestions that auto-complete any word you type in, then unfortunately, we don't have any influence on them as they're controlled by Android for every input field of every app.
nope. I'm not referring to the word autocomplete. I'm referring to suggestions that are displayed when you move cursor to the "No due date" labeled field.
Try the following:
change the language from English to any other language => start the app => hit + sign in order to create new task => fill in Task name and project => move the cursor to the "No due date" labeled field
Now, what is the last suggestion? Monday in the language you have chosen right? Hit that and try to save the task. You should see an error saying: "We couldn't understand your due date". That is the issue.
I got this once again... Todoist version 2.0.9. Android version 4.0.3.
When I add tasks I get due date pre filled with "Idag". (Today in Swedish). Since Swedish isn't supported I have to erase that and add a new proper date. When I tap the field I get the suggestions in Swedish (Idag| Imorgon| Varje dag| mer...) which is useless. So I must use the calendar
Is there a way to force English settings? Any help would be appreciated
