Can't Delete a task


Trying to delete a task but it just keeps holding and won't let me complete it or delete it. I did at it via the mobile phone.

Hi Scott,

What's the exact syntax used for the date of this task? If you change it to something simpler, such as "today" and save. Can you then delete it?

i am having the same problem with several recurring tasks - it seems like altering the date syntax will help, but it also seems like i should be able to use recurring date features properly whilst also enjoying a fully functioning todoist interface?! is there a way to fix this bug? my recurring dates read as follows : "every jan 15, april 15, june 15, sept 15" - thanks!

As of now we don't support more than one date within a task. So you would need separate tasks for Jan 15, April 15, etc if those are the only 4 months. You can use "every 15" for every 15th of every month.
