repetitive task input problems in Portuguese (BR)

AB

I tried:

"todo ter,qua,qui" DONT WORK
"every tue,wed,thu" WORK
after entering the text in English, tried editing the date field, which returned:
"every ter ," its a Invalid date. Note the confusion of English with Portuguese.

I tried:
"todo qua,qui" DONT WORK
"every wed,thu" WORK
after entering the text in English, tried editing the date field, which returned
"every quar ,"

Also note that the abbreviation in portuegues for Wednesday is "qua" no "quar".

thanks

Hello Aliã,

Thank you for your report, but I can't reproduce it when using "quar" as the abbreviation.

Unfortunately, we can't use "qua" as a shortcut because this would introduce ambiguity with the "toda quarta sábado" (for a task to repeat on every fourth day of the week in a certain month).


Best regards,
David

For a task to repeat on every fourth day of the week in a certain month, the right way would be: "todO quartO sábado"

Regardless of this detail, try this:

"todo quar, quin, sex" or "toda quar, quin, sex"

"todo seg, ter, quar", "todo seg, quar, sab" and so on.

none of them work.

I think something like google calendar, should avoid that.

Thanks

Aliã,

You're right about sábado, but should there not be "toda quarta segunda"?

Anyway, yes, I've been able to reproduce this issue now, it seems to affect any date including 3 or more days, we'll look into this issue now. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Best regards,
David
