Hi Paul,

You say you can not find any overdue tasks, but then mention except for the Project list, so are you able to find the overdue tasks? If you search for the task in question?

Is this from your daily digest, or an actual email notification?

Hi Brendon,

email notification works find, the problem is today, next 7 days list http://d.pr/i/ni8i, note you also see overdue in the search bar

Yet if you look at my japan task list, you'll see 1 task is out of date http://d.pr/i/gmPL

Hello Paul,

Based on the screenshots, it looks correct - you have no tasks due Today and in the Japan project, there are two tasks, but neither of them is yours (they're assigned to SP).

That said, to clarify - does the Daily Digest email show you these tasks as being overdue even though they were assigned to someone else for at least 24 hours (a full cycle between the Daily Digest mails)?

Best regards,

Yes David, that's right, the daily digest email is showing me tasks assigned to other people that overdue, personally I'd like all overdue tasks to be visible to me that are in my todoist personally, I don't want anything to slip through the cracks
