"!chain" not working anymore

It seems that !chain, which shows you a Jerry Seinfel chain, doesn't work anymore.

Hello Guillaume,

could you please clarify what feature are you referring to and what issue are you experiencing with it?

Best regards,

When you added the string "!chain" to the text of a recurring task, you could see, next to your task, a serie of white squares.
One square would become green each time you accomplished the recurring task.

This feature seemsto have disapeared.

Cordially ours,

unfortunately, this feature has been indeed deprecated and is no longer supported. One of the reasons why we've removed is was an issue with supporting it on mobile devices.

That's a real pity. Why can't it be continued, only with limited or no functionality on mobile platforms?

It's one of the features I use the most.

Is there a chance you will integrate the seinfeld chain again?

I am a user of habitbull and this feature would be save me a great deal of duplication if available in todoist
