Bug in reminders


This also happens on the Mac app. I will post screen shots in an email following this question... It's not a question anyway, it's a feature which I know should work, used many times in the recent past, and usually worked but today and yesterday for some weird reason does not work anymore on new tasks. Basically, I can't set recurring reminders for a task.

- task: do XYZ - every sunday
- reminder: send email 2 days before

But the feature is grayed out. Instead I only get the fixed date option (ex: 28 Apr)...

dates "specific time / before due date" is grayed out. Why, if it isn't a

This combo box used to work and I used it often times with no problem. So
what's the deal? I had to used google calendar for now instead, which is a
sad workaround...

Oh and I tried logout and login again, just in case. Still the same. And I
checked my reminder settings (email address etc). All seems fine in there
too. So I really don't understand what's wrong.

Please try sending the screenshots etc to brendon@doist.io as attachments are not included in this support forum.

And to be clear, the task is created for "every sunday" and then in the reminders menu, you can't enter anything?
