date picker going to 2014


In the current version of the Android app, it's forwarding tasks to tomorrow plus one year rather than tomorrow.

- Go to "today" view
- tap a task from yesterday
- tap the calendar icon to change the date
- tap the calendar icon to open the date selector
- see default date is for May 29 2014
expected: May 29 2013

Accidentally forwarded 3 tasks to 2014 before I noticed.

This is on a Nexus 4, stock Android.

Thank you for this report. I have reproduced this as well and have let the developers know.

Any progress on this?
I'm constantly chasing tasks from 2014 and putting them back to 2013. This is a real issue as tasks can be missed if I don't regularly check for tasks due in 2014 that should not be.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We are still looking into this. We hope to find something soon.

Hello. This bug still exists. I can understand that it's desired functionality if you type the day and month for "yesterday" that the app should assume I meant the future. But if I pick the date on a calendar picker, the year should also be filled in to the field. Please fix this problem

Hello Bruce,

Thank you for your feedback, we'll look into it. Please let us know in what situations would you like to add tasks to dates that have already passed so we can better understand the use case as we improve this :-)

Hi David Trey: One example of why I'd want to create a new item with a past date: I already have a group of items which appear together in my "Today" view because they're all on the same (past) date, and i want to add a new item that sorts together with those other items.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for the additional info! We can't promise that this will be changed but we'll certainly keep your suggestion in mind. :-)
