Version 1.2.5 duplicating the Start Page filter

RM

When opening Todoist (v1.2.5) on my Samsung Galaxy S3 this morning, I saw three instances of my Start Page filter , each with the same Tasks.

Having noticed a problem over the past week with many of the apps, I logged out of the mobile app and logged back in. It took four tries to sync, but sync finally worked. After the sync, the number of instances of my Start Page filter was reduced to two.

Just thought you'd like to know.


Best regards,
Randy Miller

Hello Randolph,

Thank you for your report, we'll look into it. For now, as a workaround, you can delete the multiplied instances by going int the "Manage filters" mode.

David,

Thanks for your quick response (as usual!).

After I saw that the tasks were the same between the duplicated filters, I deleted the 'extra' Start Page filter.

Thanks for looking into the issue.


Best regards,
Randy Miller

Randolph,

To fix this issue permanently, please delete both these filters. According to the developers, it's caused by a change in handling of it - before, if your start page query was different from the default, the app would create and store your custom start page. This was not an optimal solution, we've changed it so that the app adds this filter dynamically, without storing it only if necessary - that is if your start page is non-default.

Therefore, when you see it twice, one is the permanently stored filter added by an earlier version of the app and the other the dynamically created filter. Deleting both will fix it as you'll delete the stored unnecessary one in the process (the dynamic one will return after you reload the app). Sorry for the inconvenience.


Best regards,
David

David,

Worked as described - thank you!

No inconvenience at all! An inconvenience would be to have to constantly delete multiple instances and have them ALL return! :-)


Thanks again,
Randy
