Date bug


When trying to add a task with a due date it automatically changes the date to the day after so all my tasks are delayed by a day. It only seems to happen for the end of October and beginning of November, with set dates and also recurring dates. I have tried to use different formats and also different browsers and platforms but I always get the same issue. Anyone else experiencing this?

Hello Laura,

Please make sure you have the same time zone set in Todoist as on all devices you're using it on.

Also, there's an issue which we're aware of that causes a date shift if the task is set to a date after the change from the Daylight Saving Time. We're looking into it now, sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards,

I have a similar problem to Laura. When I add a task using the android app for anytime on the 27th October or later it moves it forward a day however the web app shows the correct day and when into to edit it on the android app even though it appears as a day late in the schedule it says the correct date in the task edit page. All my timezones are set the same so its not that. It must be the DST bug. Hopefully you can get it sorted soon as it is really irritating having to use the mobile website instead of the app at the moment.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the report. If you have checked your Todoist settings, and all devices settings for timezone, then it's most likely the issue we are aware of, and we are looking into it.

Hello. I have the same problem on my android tablet and phone, timezone on both Europe/Madrid. When I schedule for the sunday 27, it appears on monday and so on. Hope you find a solution soon.

Hello Andreas,

We're sorry for the inconvenience. We're looking into it, but we're suspecting that it's caused by the upcoming time change (end of the Daylight Saving Time) and once that happens, these tasks will adjust to the right date/time automatically.

Best regards,

I'm also having the same issue, I have added a task for Tuesday 29th October, but it displays Wednesday both in project view and the 7 day view on my Android phone even though when editing the item it shows the correct date and also displays correctly both on the web and the Mac app. I have also ensured that the time zones are set correctly on my Mac and the Android device.

How do you set the Time Zone to stay after choosing it in the drop down? It always defaults to Chicago time zone.
