Duplicate tasks appearing randomly

  • updated
  • Fixed

When I am dragging and dropping tasks they randomly duplicate themselves and sometimes even overwrite other tasks when doing so! I have instances where I see each task on a day has duplicated itself 3 times. 


I love weekplan, but this is really annoying and making it unreliable. Suggestions/bugfixes will be really appreciated.


PS: I am not using any modifier keys while dragging the tasks, and I am on Chrome.

Hi,


Do you have recurring tasks in your week?

Yes, I have two recurring tasks which are set to re-occur weekly.

Sorry for taking so long to come back to you. The bug should not happen anymore. Something I have noticed when dragging a recurring task is that it shows a duplicated task while dragging and when I drop the task the duplicated task disappears.

Thank you very much. Indeed, the random duplication of tasks happen less often now. However, it still does; for instance, when I complete a task, sometimes it remains at its current location in the list (instead of moving itself to the bottom), and if I drag another task in this situation it duplicates itself. I am not entirely sure, but I think sometimes the tasks do not only get copied but also overwrite each other. I will try to get a screencast for you if I can find time this week.

By the way, I am using Weekplan zoomed out (in Chrome); perhaps this could be related to the issue.

Duplications are a bug in our drag and drop code. If you refresh, the list should show the correct tasks. If you figure out a way to reproduce the issue, please let me know, it will greatly help me.

This is still an issue for me. I can't reproduce it regularly, but their must be a workflow that causes it because I find it happens about two times a week.

And if you refresh the page the duplicate disappears?

They do, but this makes managing my week more confusing and tricky.

Are the tasks from gcal, or repeating?
