Hello Kakaxa,

Unfortunately, our app does not support Czech dates. Do you have your phone's local settings set to Czech or English?

Best regards,

Yes, to Czech.
I do not want my entire iOS environment in English, this would have been a step back.
So if you don't support Czech, then stop using system setting for dates, please!
Now working with Todoist at iPhone and iPad is really silly experience.
Any change in title, project, priority, subtask, labels, assignement slaps me back with Error.

There are two separate settings - the general language setting that will affect the entire UI of your phone and the regional date setting.

The first one can stay set to Czech and won't affect Todoist, but the second one is used to enter dates in the language/region you have set it to.

That would only be a temporary workaround, though, as the main issue is that because we don't support it, it should always use English dates regardless of your settings. I have passed it to our developers not and we'll address it in future updates. Sorry for the inconvenience.

You are right, thanks for advice, it works.
But it's workaround only.
Every user with languages nonsupported by Todoist will run into this problem.

This issue has been fixed and the fix will be deployed in the next upcoming update of our app.
