Tasks update/autoupdate does not work on adroid


Hi, I have galaxy note 2, n7100 android app, premium account and desktop + browser.

Whenever I complete or add new task it does not update on Android, widget does not even have 'refresh button'.

I just switched from RTM where all that was automatic.

Shouldn't that be automatic? I have tasks that I need to complete without computer - but they dont sync fast enough.

All responses

Hi Robert,

Please clarify, does the Widget not update, or does the App & Widget not update? Also, to confirm, you are connected to the internet when using your device? Yes, these should auto update with new information.

I would suggest trying to log out, and back in again. If that does not help, clearing the data for the app (Android Settings, Applications, find Todoist).

Ok I add task 2 tasks with today as due day in project in chrome browser on desktop computer, I "complete one" - it does not update on
a) todoist app on android (till I press refresh)
b) widget on android showing today tasks

I did clear app settings in android, re-added widget - didn't help.

Those tasks do not refresh till I click manually. And hence widget does not have refresh button - no way to even see progress on connected device.

If I have to manually refresh sadly I'll have to resign from using todoist.

To clarify, the Android app does not auto update completely, it updates when something happens. If you make a change, it will grab the latest content, if you stay with a view and not touch anything, it will do nothing.

The widget on the other hand should be updated automatically. I would suggest, uninstalling the app, rebooting the phone, and reinstalling the latest version. Unfortunately, I am unable to reproduce this issue.

Thanks, sorry for the issues,
