Sync between android and web

I have problem with todoist on android. Tasks that I have added on web are wrongly synced with android device. Tasks either show on different project than I have added it on web or there are duplicates of tasks.

Hello Michael,

Please tell me:
- What version of our app are you using?
- What version of Android are you using?
- Does clearing the app's cache solve it?
- Does it happen in private or shared projects?
- Can you reliably reproduce either of these issue? And if so, please describe step-by-step how can it be triggered.

Best regards,

Michael Cwienczek

I am using web version ( don't know which release version that is, there's no info abut that).

On my android phone (Galaxy S3) I am using 3.1.3 (Android 4.1.2)

I can clear the app cache and get back to you in few days/week. Just give me some direct mail contact info.

It is private project.

I cannot reliably reproduce the error. It is randomly observed when typing tasks from the web and then syncing to android. Looks like network issue - syncing part of a project (it happened especially with nested tasks, few sub-tasks from one task were scattered around random tasks on the phone) on unreliable networks like Android phone.

I can add that after syncing android app the problem still persisted on the web (tried several times). Only deleting task with subtasks and re-creating them helped.

Hello Pranay,

Please let us know how can you trigger this issue? Can you reproduce it, perform certain steps to make some tasks duplicate themselves?

Best regards,
