Thank you for your feedback. There are other users who have feedback to us about this issue.
We are considering this issue now. It is cool to some users. But this feature also makes it inconvenient to some users including you.
1. On Monday, I type "Draft an agenda for the finance meeting on Wednesday" into Smart Add
2. I click Save, and Doit.im sees the word 'Wednesday' and adds my task to Scheduled
In this example, imagine that I actually want to delegate that task to someone else next time I go through my Inbox - on Tuesday. But that task didn't go into my Inbox! I only see it again on Wednesday, and it causes chaos!
Usually this means I have to go through another step:
3. Go into Scheduled, edit the task, and put it in the Inbox where it belongs
This is very irritating, especially if I need to put collect a lot of tasks. If I want to assign a specific start/due time to a task, I can use ^ or click on the button below the text field to add a date. If I haven't done that, it's because I want it to go into the Inbox!
Could you please turn off the automatic text processing that assigns dates, for Smart Add on Android?
OK, thank you :)
We will make Doit better
Thank you for helping us.
I agree with the annoyance of smart dates and have been caught by them.
If I type ^Wednesday, I'd expect it to be scheduled in the future. If I type Wednesday, I expect that it would treat that as simple text.
We will think about letting the users to set the default setting in our next version, like "turn off the Smart Add Date".
Thank you for your feedback.
I just want to share a screenshot showing how bizarre and unhelpful this feature is! Please see a screenshot attached. I needed to order a carpet, product number 5076. Doit processed this to mean a task to start on 1 January... year 5076.
I struggle to see how this is in any way useful!
@sweepstakes Kindly accept my sincere apologies for the delay in replying to you. Would you please re-login and check it again? Sorry for the inconvenience.
is there now a way to turn off this feature? It is quite unhelpful.
@aymanim Thank you! We'll think more on it.
