Nested list of subtasks collapses when web app is syncing?


I've been using subtasks in the inbox (e.g., things to do before the holiday).

I use the disclosure triangle to expand the entire list and start making edits.

It appears that the first time the web app syncs back to the todoist server, the exanded list automatically collapses. I have to hit the disclosure triangle to expand again.

Also seems the expanded view collapses somewhat randomly thereafter.

Thanks for looking into this. Happy Holidays.

Hi Neel,

I cannot seem to reproduce this issue. Please clarify, which browser are you using? Does this occur with any sub-tasks, or just items that are in the Inbox?

What edits are you making, changing date, or adding notes?

Hi Brendon,

I'm using Mac OS X Mavericks and Chrome browser.

This behavior is happening on all four instances I've tried: Mac OS X HTML app, todoist.com, Chrome browser extension, and Gmail plug in.

I have a list as follows:

Master task
Task A
Task B
Task C

If I check off Task B, all the subtasks are collapsed again. I think I've isolated it to the Today or Next 7 days views (which I'm assuming are dynamically generated). If I view Master Task and its associated subtasks in the Inbox list (where I created it), the problem doesn't show up.

Hope that helps isolate it.

This would then be the expected behavior. I am going to assume that the sub-tasks do not have dates? The Today view, and date based views will only show tasks that are due that time, so if the sub-tasks aren't due then, they will collapse when refreshed.
