Tasks converted to Role?

  • updated
  • Not a bug

My tasks are being converted to their role. As in: I create a task saying "write review" and give it the role of manager. I come back later to find the task is now "manager" and "write review" is gone completely. This has happened at least 10 times now. It's very frustrating to know there should be a task there and have no idea what the task is. Refresh/bringing up on another computer/etc does not fix. This has only happened to me starting a month or so ago.

Mmm, there is definitely some issue somewhere.


1. Do you use Google Calendar synchronization?

2. Do you use any Zapier integration with WeekPlan?

3. Can you reproduce this issue every time?

Aymeric

Another question: have you been editing your roles lately?

Hi, I've been having the same issue several times (but it seems random ; I can't reproduce it). The answer to the other 2 questions above is no. I'm on the free version of Weekplan. I hope this gets fixed.

Apart de ça, j'adore... merci !

Hi Scoot and Joke,


I have enabled some additional logging against your accounts. If you could let me know when it happens against (with a time + timezone), it will help me figure out what it going on.


Thanks!

Hello Aymeric,

Oh no it happened again ;-) ! 2 of my entries for Tuesday 05 Jan have been overwritten by their roles (or topic in my logic). I can't post any printscreens here, but they mention "Pure fun" and "Adventure/trips"... Now if only I get to remember what I wrote there originally... Hope this helps.. Can't remember anything out of the ordinary when I made these entries. Merci d'avance, Joke

Ct'd.. I'm writing in from Belgium, but time ?? no idea when this happened, but I noticed @ 21:45 on 02/01/2016

I've seen the same thing happen. Here are two action numbers that it has effected within the last day or so.

8123869

8080364

Looks like it happened again today (8141725). Maybe happening when tasks rollover?


The big issue with this is that there is no record of what the task was previously titled. So that task is effectively lost, which really kills the idea of having a trusted system for storing your open loops (GTD, David Allen).

Yes I just can't find where the issue comes from. Did you do some actions before the title changed or did you open weekplan and the task was there with the invalid title?


I think I will have to implement some audit on the tasks to see what is going on. Only few users are affected, but I can't find what you have in common.

I wish I had more info but it just sneaks up on me and I don't notice until I'm scanning the todo list for the day.


I typically leave my Weekplan window open indefinitely. I can't remember the last time I modified roles. Added a new role maybe 4 weeks ago. No Zapier. I do use Google Calendar but I'm not sure how that is integrated - it's been a while. I've been seeing the 405 errors for the last 3 or 4 weeks but they happen much more regularly than this issue with the task title.


I was hoping the action IDs might give you some historical data to debug with. Sorry I don't have more. Can you find out when action 8141725 was last updated? I have deliberately not opened that task since it changed hoping to preserve any debug clues.


Thanks for looking in to this.
