Recurring Task Bug
I have many tasks set to recur annually. One of these tasks must have accidentally been checked as completed, as I found it in the completed tasks. I unchecked the task to move it back to the active task list, but it always disappears again after a few seconds even if I edit it first. I discovered that every time the task is checked as completed and then unchecked to recover it, the year of the task increments by one. Even if I edit the year back to 2014, it disappears and increments again from whatever the last year was -- right now it's on 2020. When this happens I also have to click to a different project and then back again to see it in the completed task list.
First of all, a recurring task should never disappear from the active task list, only the due date should change accordingly when it is checked as completed. I have no idea how this happened, as I have three other tasks that are identical except for the date and none of them have this problem. The other behaviors I mentioned are all very ugly, but the task should never have gotten into this state in the first place.
Secondly, I tested one of the well-behaved recurring annual tasks and when it is checked as completed I cannot change the year back. It will let me pick a year while editing, but when the change is saved it simply reverts back the accidentally incremented year.
I've recreated a new recurring task to replace the buggered one. It seems to be working fine, but it is very concerning for an important scheduled task to disappear if I am trusting Todoist to keep track of these things. It's also not reasonable to have to recreate a duplicate recurring task if one is accidentally clicked.
