Time for reoccurring tasks defaults to 11:59PM

When I create a reoccurring task and try to set a time it reverts to 11:59 PM. For example if I try “Ev 2 weeks starting 16 @ 10:00 am”. The task reoccurrence is correct but the time defaults to 11:59PM. When I try to edit it the occurrence looks correct but after saving it reverts back to 11:59 pm

I can provide screen shots if needed

Hi Ivan,

The correct syntax is the following, The date needs to be last currently.

"ev 2 weeks at 10am starting 16"

Though there is an example showing this correctly in https://todoist.com/Help/DatesTimes , it seems such a common issue (with an oddball result), I ask that you consider calling it out specifically in there (perhaps the line showing the example could say "note: the time must be before the date).

And actually, I realize the only example there doesn't show, say, an "after" example for recurrence... perhaps it should.
