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

Olá bom dia "Alia Bianco" e David Trey"!

Eu particularmente nem vejo problema em usar a abreviação "quar" ao invés de "qua", quando se refere à quarta-feira.

O problema que vejo no Todoist, é o de não poder programar mais de 2 dias, exemplo: seg, ter, quar.

Ele só aceita até dois dias!!!

Eu queria programar uma tarefa de segunda à sábado (seg, ter, quar, qui, sex, sáb), mas não consegui programar com o Todoist!!

Vocês tem alguma sugestão?

Hello Cristiano,

Unfortunately, that won't be possible right now :-( We can't support more than 2 days for non-English versions due to the huge complexity. In fact, even the 2 day option is quite complex when it involves translated dates.

That said, there are 2 workarounds you could try:

1. Set the task to "every day" and on Saturday, after you complete it, also postpone it to Monday to skip Sunday.

2. Set the task to "every workday" and it will only repeat Monday - Friday (if you wouldn't really have to complete it on Saturday)


Best regards,
David
