Due date moved forward one day


I believe my problem is related to this previous thread:


Shortly after inserting a todo item with a due date, the due date is moved forward by one day. This happens for every item on a particular day, e.g. all my todo items on November 14 and November 19 are moved to November 15 and November 20.

This all happens on the web version. I do use the mobile (Android) version, but I have not attempted to insert an item with a due date through the mobile app yet.

The mobile device in question is my phone, which is set (along with the web app) to the proper timezone. I did move timezones somewhat recently (3 weeks ago).

Hi Roberto,

Please make sure that all devices, and Todoist settings are set to the same Timezone. This would be your Android settings, your desktop settings, and the settings found at Todoist.com.

Unfortunately, if you had moved timezones and ignored the question to change it, these tasks can be permanently problematic. Though if Timezones are correct again, new ones should not have the issue. Please confirm if all settings are the same.

I was able to resolve the problem (so far), by updating my time zone on the Todoist settings, but I'm not sure why it worked.

When Todoist offered to automatically change my timezone, I clicked yes. In the settings, my time zone was set to "(GMT -0500)".

I saw below there was an option of: "(GMT -0500) US/Central". Even though semantically there should not have been a difference between my existing setting and the latter option, switching to "(GMT -0500) US/Central" resolved my problem.
