Entries coming up multiple times



Every time I add a to-do task on my iPhone, it seems to come up multiple times when I postpone it (that is, the task will appear three times the following day, so if I have three tasks that day, it will appear that I have nine). Is there any way to prevent this?

Hi Alex,

Does this only happen when postponing the task, does it happen if you complete it, or send to history?

What is the exact due date of the tasks that this happens too? Does this also happen if you do this on the web version?

It doesn't happen on the Web version. In fact, it might not (only) be due to postponing tasks. It might happen when I enter tasks for a future date (tomorrow, or further down the road). It's a little hard to say what's causing it. I only know that many of my tasks scheduled for some time later today end up being repeated three times at least.

Please confirm,

Does this happen when you add a task for today? With or Without a time.
If you add a task for a later date on the web version, it syncs without issue on the phone?
Does this happen if you complete an already added task, say an older one that is recurring?
What's an exact date for one of these tasks, what did you enter when you created it? If it's tomorrow, did you enter, tomorrow, or the date, or?

Please try uninstalling the app, and reinstalling it.
