Post Problem with Sync
There still seems to be a problem with syncing.

Compare the following two lists

These are the same view but they do not have the same tasks in them. Notice that "get faculty job" and "whiten teeth" are missing from the pre version.

I made the changes that moved them from today to tomorrow on the pre, synced, it looked good on the web, they are missing on the pre.

This is strange. It is now the afternoon, my web tomorrow interface looks the same as it did in the morning screen shot above, but now my pre looks like this, even after a sync.

All my tasks for the tomorrow view are gone and one that is due in two days is there. Maybe the timing on the "tomorrow" filter is off?

Here is another example of what is going wrong with the sync. It is 5am.

Both screen shots were taken at the same time with the same filters applied, from the web and pre, they are very different though.

I should note that my Today filter is now almost correct, except one task is missing, and the Tomorrow filter is correct.

Here is another problem, I think it is the cause of the missing one or two tasks

Create a saved view, show all for stars, filter for all but one folder, filter for today and overdue

Create two identical tasks, star one

The starred item will not display on the pre

Unstar the item, sync

now it displays on the pre

It seems like a lot of the problems I am having are not so much sync related as filter related

Hi,
I did some looking into this but couldn't find the issues yet (nor could I replicate them). Could you do some more tests to find out exactly what causes a task not to show up? For example, check to see that all the tasks show up in the "all" view. And then add filters one at a time to see which filter is causing the task not to show up when it should be showing up. Also, could you check to see if all tasks that aren't showing up in a duedate category (such as "today") are showing up in another duedate category? Also, what time zone are you in? I think that the bug causing tasks to show up in the wrong duedate category has to do with Toodler not handling timezones right.

Edit: I think I'm starting to see where the problem is, but the above info would still be helpful.

Thanks!
Ethan

I am in mountain standard time.

I will have to the tests tomorrow morning, I have already checked most things off for today so there is nothing to test with.

However, I do have one problem, I changed the date on a task to look like this

MW: Set up home teaching visits
Folder: Success
Context: Success
Goal: No Goal
Start: no date
Due: May 23
Repeat: The 1st Sun of each month
Length:
Timer: [start timer]
Priority: 0 Low
Status: None
Tag: None
Star: None

Added: Apr 22, 2010

After a sync, on the pre it looks like

MW: Set up home teaching visits
Folder: Success
Context: Success
Goal: No Goal
Start: no date
Due: May 16
Repeat: The 1st Sun of each month
Length:
Priority: 0 Low
Status: None
Tag: None
Star: None

They are the same, but the date is not updated on the pre

This is a saved view filtered on one folder (success) and duedates (overdue, today)
It is sorted by tag ascending, and priority ascending

The filter that wasn't working was star. It was acting as if it was set to "no star"

This is a saved view filtered on all folders except one (success) and duedates (overdue, today)
It is sorted by tag ascending, and priority ascending

I have found a task that does not appear to be syncing at all. It does not come over to the pre, or if it is it is not displaying, even when there are no filters or sorts applied.

Here are it's attributes

[Click to add star]
DT: Check Garbage
B
Folder: Success
Context: No Context
Goal: No Goal
Start: no date
Due: Today
Repeat: Every Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat
Length:
Timer: [start timer]
Priority: 0 Low
Status: None
[delete task]
Add Note


Here is another one,

DT: Take pills
B
Folder: Success
Context: Success
Goal: No Goal
Start: no date
Due: Today
Repeat: Daily
Length:
Timer: [start timer]
Priority: 2 High
Status: None
[delete task]
Add Note

Here is a new issue,

Start the app fresh with a saved view as the starting view, clear all filters and sorts, now no tasks will display until you restart the app.

I'm still having some trouble reproducing these issues. When I post the new version later tonight, could you tell me which of these issues still exist? (I'm not sure if the fixes I've made have addressed your issues and that's why I'm not seeing them.)
