push notification when adding a task from an email

The push notification i receive on my iPhone is an [[outlook=000000324083209u230u9 etc which is a nonsense not readable message.
Same thing shows up on push reminders.

Anything to fix this annoying behavior? Am i doing something wrong?

Thank you for your report, this is an issue caused by the visible code linking to and email if the task has been created from a message via Outlook.

We're working on this right now and will make the app ignore this code and just display the name of the task.

Please do correct some annoying glitches like this one and the fact that for anything created in outlook there is a push notification (even if not linked to an email).

The concept of todoist is fantastic and is a real productivity booster!!!

We'll certainly correct this issue, but reg. getting a push notification for any task - this should not be happening, the only way to experience such behavior is if you have a default reminder method selected in the settings and add a task with a date and time, in which case such task will get an automatic "30 minutes before" reminder attached to it - this works on all platforms.

Best regards,

When is the push notification text fix expected to be available? I like this feature as well, but it's not quite as useful without being bale to tell which item the notification is for.

No exact date, but it should be soon.
