App Crashes on Ev 1,16 Task


I have a recurring task to enter billable hours set to 'Ev 1,16' -- entering the task works great, shows up as scheduled on the 1st and 16th of the month.

However, when I try to check the task completed in the iPhone app, the app crashes. When I try to check the task off on Mac, I get the little progress bars but the task never gets checked off. After awhile the progress bars stop, but the task stays unchecked. After that, I'm unable to click on the 3 dots to edit the task.

BTW I've tried completely deleting and re-adding the task multiple times, but it has the same behavior each time.

Hello Alan,

Unfortunately, this is not a supported due date format, you can't set monthly recurring tasks to two specific days. Please create one task due "every 1" and a second task due "every 16".

Thanks David - would be good then for the application not to accept that format when the task is being entered. Because it accepts the date and appears to valid, it's caused me a fair amount of frustration and also made me perceive the app as not being very stable due to the frequent crashing.

Knowing what the issue is, I can workaround but still would recommend not to allow the task to be created and appear to be valid.

Hi Alan - I am having the exact same issue as you. Now I know the answer, and I agree with you that the application should not accept the format if it's not valid. I guess I can try using every 2 weeks from now on.

We've let our developers know about this already so in the future, using this due date syntax will throw out a warning prompt. Sorry for the inconvenience.
