Bug: Todoist mobile gets times wrong and does not update


A task set for 3 pm shows as 6pm (or some random time) on todoist.com/m version.

Also, checking off a task on the standard site does not update for hours on the mobile site (task still shows up as unfinished).

Hello Karthik,

unfortunately, I can't reproduce neither of these issues :(

Please try to clear your phone's browser cache and cookies. Also, refresh the page after each use of Todoist on the website.

As for the wrong time settings, please tell me:
- Is the correct time being displayed after refreshing the page?
- Does the incorrect time also appear on the standard site?
- What's the exact due date/time you're using?

Best regards,

How to replicate:

I just added a task called "This task is a test" tom @ 1600

on Google chrome on my mac to a project called Fun. See screenshot:


Then I went to my iphone 4 and loaded up todoist.com/m and hit refresh.

See the exact same task:


The first error persists even after clearing cache and cookies.

although I still can't reproduce the issue reg. delayed display of completed tasks, I've been able to reproduce the problem regarding different times displayed in the /m page and I've forwarded this issue to the developers.

Thank you for pointing it out and sorry for any inconvenience it might have caused you.

For now, there is a workaround. If you try to edit a task with the wrong time on the iPhone, you'll see that it is really set to the correct time (although it displays the wrong time) and if you save the task again through the /m page, the proper time will be displayed.

As for the delayed completion - please post the exact due date of a task that that has been completed on the standard site, but not via the /m site.

Best regards,
