Why tasks date change after the sync?


I have the following issue:

I use andorid app to enter my tasks, but when I open web site, all of them are sync with wrong date - a day later.

Example: I enter 10th June, but it is appear as 11th June in web version :(

Please tell me if this problem is only in my phone and how can I fix it?

Thank you in advance,
Nicky Yorgov

Hello Nicky,

Please make sure that your phone, your computer and Todoist itself are all set to the exact same time zone. Note - your computer may have the correct time, but a different time zone, please make sure the zone is correct.

Also, please try to add some tasks with due times such as "10 Jun at 13:30" and let me know if and by how log will the time of the task be off and if the issue works both ways so when you add a task through the web, it has a different date/time on Android.

Best regards,

Dear David,

I checked my time zone on my phone and computer and they are the same - Sofia, Bulgaria.

Also, I follow your advice and tried to enter taks "today @ 13:30" and the good news is that when it is sign on my computer is appear the same taks in Today, but with different hour - 14:30 :)

Any idia why? :)

Thank you,

There is only one way for this to happen - incorrect time zone settings. Please also check the Settings in Todoist to make sure that you have the correct time zone set there as well. Also, if you're in a Daylight Savings Time zone, make sure that it is handled by your computers DST settings. The time should not be changed manually, but through the DST setting.

Best regards,
