Hello,

 

I used to have ~100 tasks in my To-Do application these days. As of yesterday, they have been reduced to ~50. Multiple tasks disappeared from various lists (the lists are all intact).

 

I rely on To-Do a lot and that's why I have it on 2 Windows PCs, 3 iOS devices and 1 Android. All are synced to the ~50 baseline, which as of yesterday, since to be my as-is in Microsoft's servers.

 

All 6 applications (in all 3 different platforms), are on To-Do version 2.55 (latest one as we speak today). Of course I have uninstalled/re-installed, log-out/in, and changed passwords to my Office 365 account several times, with no effect.

 

When I visited the web app, to check the situation, my tasks were not deleted (i.e. reduced from ~100 to ~50), but I noticed, that these ~100 tasks, were not exactly my latest update (i.e. I have seen tasks here and there that I have recently closed, or changed that were not reflected in the web app). But at least the heavy reduction from ~100 to ~50 was not done (some hope there). But when I signed out and signed it again (always in the web app), then I saw all these tasks disappearing from here as well.

 

So now, all 6 apps (Windows, iOS and Android), plus the web app, are ALL SYNCHORNIZED to this ~50 tasks baseline, which as of yesterday, seems to be my new as-is in Microsoft's servers. The disappeared messages are not in deleted tasks folder of Office365/Outlook, etc. They are totally gone.

 

Can anyone support me, or suggest something to me ?

Thank you!

@Viterbi - just chiming in to say I am experiencing a similar issue. Although what's happening for me is that I have 606 tasks on my iphone but just 498 on my computer, despite both being logged in to the same account and supposedly synced. This is frustrating - I put tasks on my to do list so I won't have to remember them, it's very bad when they disappear from there. 

Thanks @jensulewski! Yes, I heavily rely on this app as well. Both for my personal and professional life. I start thinking that I have to try to put back all my lost tasks (as far as I can remember, which will be tough), but then again, I now feel exposed to the risk of this happening again.

Oh my! Same! I'm having this issue and it is frustrating and disappointing.
What's annoying is, the application signs me out and when I sign back in, a lot of my tasks vanished. I just can't find them. And this has happened more than once.
I hoped it would sync better, but same. I've now had enough!

Finding alternatives!
