Default reminder time


Everytime I try to set a specific date reminder for say a persons birthday, the reminder time of that day always defaults to 11:59pm.

For instance i click the reminder icon, I type in "Every 12 months starting 12/1/2014 @ 9:00am"... The reminder output shows "Every 12 months starting 12/1/2014 @ 11:59pm"

Not a huge issues, but something i noticed that could be fixed with future updates. Thank you! Looking forward to the calendar addition to this app!

Hello Nick,

This is caused by the incorrect date format. You're setting the time for the starting date and not for the date of the task itself.

That said, please use:

every 12 months at 9:00am starting 12/1/2014

However, please note that Todoist considers a month as 30 days so if you want the task to recur annually at the exact same day, please don't use "every 12 month", but rather:

every 12 Jan

Which will set the task to occur on this particular day each year.

Best regards,
