Task not being marked as done...

I have a task that has the following recurring schedule - every other week starting 6/11/2011.

When I try to complete the currently displayed instance of the task, it just gets stuck and has the wheel going round and round and round...

What gives?

All responses

Hello Dapo,

thank you for pointing this out, although "every other WEEK" isn't on the list of supported date formats, I will forward this issue to the developers and we'll consider adding it in future development.

Sorry for any inconvenience it may have caused you.

Best regards,

Thanks for the prompt response. Just wanted to add that when I entered "every other week", I did not get an error message as I have gotten when I entered other unacceptable dates. If it's not acceptable it should have popped up an error message. Just saying.

I have the same issue with every 2nd Friday in a month stating 17 Jun. Which the help implies is supported as there are 2 examples under recurring dates using both clauses.

I have changed to every 14 days starting 17 Jun and this works.

Perhaps the help examples need to be clearer ?

I would certainly use the syntax "Every other Friday", rather than "Every 2nd Friday" as in the video example. To me "Every 2nd Friday" feels as though it should actually mean "The 2nd Friday in every month", rather than "Every 14 days, starting on Friday".

Maybe it's a consequence of the fact that natural UK English is different from natural American English ;-).
