I like the to-do/task feature in the MS launcher for android. It allows me to create reminders with the voice assistant, or do it manually without launching an app.

 

However, I have been having an issue since I installed it where refreshing the to-do/task list in the MS launcher will set all of my due dates to one day before i scheduled them. It happens with 100% consistency. This causes me to miss reminders all the time because i accidentally refresh the to-do list while swiping through the launcher. The wrong due date also gets synced to my other apps like my PC and the to-do application on my phone.

 

For example: I create a task from the MS launcher then open it to set a date and reminder. once i save it i will go back to the task list and swipe down to update the list. every time i refresh the task list all of my tasks show the issue. Even reoccurring tasks have this problem.

 

Has anyone else had issues like this? I cant find a very good source for to-do/MS launcher troubleshooting.

Thanks for your report, we're trying to repro this issue.

 

two questions to confirm:

1. Will this issue occur if you don't manually sync the items? It would auto-sync with the server in a couple of hours

2. Is your system timezone setting consistent with your location?

Hi there,

The issue does seem to occur when the device auto syncs. I had changed all the due dates and reminders to their correct values, locked the screen, and came back two hours later to find that they had all been moved.

I have my device on auto for time, but I also changed it to manual setting it to my location, and that didn't seem to have an impact after the auto sync window occured a second time

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks,
