Bug: Items rescheduled a year later after drag and drop

In Todoist web version (Chrome Browser Win 7 OS) quick add a timed, recurring item such as "Test" with the date something like "after 10 days @ 6pm starting tom". Then, in 7 day view, drag the item from 'Tomorrow' back to 'Today'.

On my browser, the item is automatically rescheduled for one year later. I've 'lost' a few recurring items this way only to find them rescheduled for next year. I've seen this bug mentioned in Android versions (which I've also had), but not in Web versions.

Hope you could look into this!

HI jeff,

We are having issues with dates, when adding a new task, its auto entering older or future dates. I believe this is related and we are looking into it.

This issue has been fixed, but requires deleting Todoist's offline cache. This can be done:

In Chrome - go to Advanced Settings -> Content Settings -> All cookies and site data, find and delete all Todoist-based entries on this list.

In Firefox - go to Options -> Advanced -> Network and delete Todoist-based entries from the list of sites storing offline data.

In Outlook or the Windows app, delete the "Cache" folder located in C:\Users[username]\AppData\Local\Todoist\Windows ... or \Outlook.

Thanks guys, but after I cleared my Chrome browser cache and made sure no Todoist entries remained, the web-based version of todoist still adds a year when dragging something from tomorrow to today.

I still get the bug when I do what I mentioned above (n.b. I made sure the time, e.g. 6 pm, was still ahead of the present 'today' time).

Thanks for your prompt replies and for looking into this.

I was able to replicate this still by following your instruction and have now reported it back again to our developers. As soon as we hear back from them, we'll let you know. Sorry for the inconvenience.
