Due dates changing themselves

When I assign a due date to a task on the MacOS app by clicking "Tomorrow", it syncs, then some time later it changes itself. So far its changed it self to one day later. I correct it, and then sometime later it changes itself again. This also happens if I click on a specific date as opposed to "tomorrow." The project is shared with two other people but I have verified that they are not changing the date. I am also on a slow connection onboard an airplane.

This seems to be a timezone issue, and you need to make sure Todoist.com's settings, the desktops settings and anywhere else you are using Todoist is on the same timezone.

Though, traveling it should be asking you to change it, which you should accept.

I have made sure all the timezones are consistent. I declined to change them in order to keep them all in the same timezone. It's still doing it even after having arrived back. I was also only traveling within a 2 timezone difference in the middle of the afternoon, so its not that it thought one device was on a different day.

Any further help would be greatly appreciated.

perhaps it's because I didn't accept the time zone change?

Hi Dave,

Aside from Todoist timezone setting, you'll have to check the timezone setting of the device itself. Are they set on the correct timezone already?
