Not refreshing in HTML5


I had open:
* The Thunderbird extension
* The GMail / Chrome extension
* A separate Chrome window at todoist.com

When I add tasks from one of these, it does not appear in the others ... not right away, not after waiting a while, not after clicking on "TD" to refresh.

Only by reloading each page can I see the updates from the others. (The Chrome extension updates each time you open it.)

Hello Colby,

this isn't a bug, you will indeed need to reload the page if you update your task list while having it already opened in a different window/browser.

I appreciate the quick reply. I would ask, however, that the team reconsider this design. Needing to manually refresh seems contrary to the idea behind HTML5. It makes using todoist as an app more work, not less.

Hi Colby

We will address this issue in later iterations (by using realtime updates across all the platforms). We have this technology implemented, but it's not rolled out currently.

Best regards,
