Synching not work for IOS


I am having issues with my iphone 5s. The platform is not synching properly. I have to logout and log in constantly otherwise old projects that are completed/deleted- are still showing up as active on today.

Hello Jonathan,

Please tell me - are you using version 8.2 of our app? If so, when you've mentioned completed/deleted projects, are you referring to actual full projects and not tasks within projects? It's important to specify this as it can be a completely different issue if it's related to projects than tasks.

Also, can you reliably reproduce it now by adding a task or project, completing the task or deleting the project or deleting the task (please clarify) and it's till visible on iOS? If so, do you see a small circular animation in the top-left corner when you do this (which would mean that the app tries to sync)?

Best regards,

I am on the latest version of the IOS app.

So for example: I update my tasks in each individual project on outlook todoist.

When I go to look on my iphone- my changes are not showing up. Let's say I delete 2 tasks from today on outlook. The iphone is not showing the changes. The phone shows the little circle at the top to sync. Then when I go to refresh, it syncs. But there is nothing updated.

So this is in updating tasks, sorry for the confusion. Changes to tasks are not showing up on iphone.

I'm having this identical issue.

So far, I can't reproduce this at all. Any change I make on any platforms is instantly synced to iOS and appears on the list within 3 seconds without having to manually force a sync.

Nonetheless, I'll pass it to the developers and we'll continue to try to identify this issue.

For now, please tell me, did you try to completely delete and reinstall the app?

Best regards,

I now tried to uninstall and reinstall the app. Working great.

I'll let you know if I encounter any further issues. Thank you for the assistance! Keep up the great work. ToDoist Rocks!!!
