I found a bug selecting due dates

CF

I tried to use the example from yours to set my due date to 2 days/week, in my case, every mondays and fridays.
I used then your example: every mon, fri at 20:00
And it only marks the more recent date (friday) , "forgetting" the other day. (monday).
It simply doesn't work.

Hello Cesar,

unfortunately, I can't reproduce this issue. Please tell me:
- What due date do you want to set up?
- What exact due date are you using?


Best regards,
David

1 - I created a project called "Home"
2 - I created a task called "@studying French"
3 - I tried to put in the due date field the same as the example: "every mon, wed at 20:00"

Done that, it only mark MONDAY Jan 23 as a date with my task. WEDNESDAY Jan 25 remains empty.

I tried some variations too like "every thu, fri at 20:00" and it only marks today (Friday Jan 20) and not next thursday

and so on.

I am using Google Chrome navigator with Windows 7 64 S.O.

Thanks.

Cesar

Cesar,

if you're referring to the "7 days" display, then it's not a bug as recurring tasks do not show every occurrence in search results, but thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it and will consider changing this function in future development.

Hi.

I've the same problem:

1 - I create a new task as shown in the sample help on advanced dates? -> Date and time insert syntax -> Recurring dates (simple):
every mon, fri at 20:00

2 - The created task appears as Today at 20:00 (because today is Friday)

3 - I select 7 days in order to see a week from now on and task test don't show up on Monday.

4 - I select to see tasks on Monday and it doesn't show too.

It IS a bug.

Hello Marcio,

unfortunately, only this first occurrence of a recurring task is being displayed and the next one shows up once the task has been checked off.

Still, thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it and will consider changing this in future development.
