Alarm times are an hour off (presumably after the daylight savings time switch)

I use military (24-hour) time when setting alarm times on tasks. I have several that are daily tasks with times like 15:00 and 17:00. Until recently, they worked fine but sometime after the daylight savings time switch they are now showing 16:00 and 18:00. When I click to edit them, they still show things like "every day @ 17:00 starting tod" while displaying the wrong time next to the task in the task list.

If I use 3p instead of 15:00, it works fine, however.

Hello Jamie,

Please tell me - what timezone are you in? Did you always have the correct time zone selected on your computer and in Todoist's Settings? When you add a task right now and set it to "tod at 16:00" - will you see the correct time for this task?

Also, do you have the 24-hour time format selected in Todoist's Settings?

Best regards,

I'm EST (New York). It's always been set to this and my computer syncs with an NTP server.

I just created a new task with an alarm time and it worked fine. I went back and tried one of the recurring tasks and that also worked as expected this time. I have no idea why it seems to be working fine now but wasn't earlier. I've changed nothing other than the time field on the tasks.

Please try to log out from Todoist, clear your browser's cache (and Todoist's offline data), reload the browser, log back in and let me know if the issue still persists. That is - if the dates or reminders of all other tasks are still off?

Best regards,
