Recurrence Reminders w Time of Day


I'm trying to set up a recurrence with a reminder for every 14 days beginning Tues (or Jun 17) with the Mobile push notification to occur at 8:30 am.

When I do so the reminder shows up "@ 11:59 pm" and not the requested 8:30 am. How can I get this set up?

Note I'm inputting "every 14 days starting Tues @ 8:30 am,"
"every 14 days starting Jun 17 at 8:30" and the same 11:59 time is what Todoist enters in the reminder.

I've also tried "every 14 days @ 8:30 am starting Tues," which Todoist enters as "every 14 days @ 8:30 am"

A Todoist fan!

Hi Jim,

You need to have the time before the date. So "every 14 days at 8:30am starting june 17" would be the correct syntax.

When I enter your phrase, that's not what Todoist shows as the reminder. It drops the date and only shows "every 14 days @ 8:30 am."

Is the date indeed entered but simply not reflected or verifiable in the reminder text?

Your comments please!

Yes, that is correct. It's entered, but simply just does not show that information. The reminder will happen each time.
