My repeating tasks for Monday the 4th are moving themselves

Task are moving themselves to tuesday at 12:59am when they are set for Monday the 4th recurring. Could this be a bug related to the daylight savings time?

Hi Gary,

Please make sure all devices using Todoist, and the actual settings for Todoist (on the website) are set to the same timezone.

Though, yes we are experiencing some issues related to DST and these should be resolved by Monday.

I have the same issue with tasks that are set for Sunday, November 3rd.

It appears that setting anything without explicit time in iOS app (i.e. tomorrow, Mon) will result in a T+1 day switch with a timestamp of 12:59am shown.

The issue is specific to iOS: both the web site and Windows desktop app display the correct due dates.

And yes, the timezone is correct in all cases....

Problem solved: my time zone was set to America/New York, which I would consider is reasonable for somebody living and working in eh... New York metropolitan area.

Apparently after the last update that time zone has disappeared. The list no longer has America/New York but does have Etc/GMT-5.

Setting your time zone to that fixes the issue.

Hello Gary,

Please confirm - were you asked by Todoist to adjust your time zone, you've agreed, have all devices you use Todoist on set to the same correct time and the issue persists?

Best regards,
