What I did: Created a quick task assigned to today. Quick rescheduled to tomorrow.
What happened: GoodTask shows the task as having a start date of Today, and due date of Tomorrow.
What I expected: No start date set, only due date.
Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc): iOS 15.5 latest agenda
@mekentosj hypothesized in Agenda not showing some reminders that differing start dates might cause problems. So if that’s the case, Agenda should set the start date to be equivalent to the due date when quick rescheduling. Of course, I don’t know what’s going on under the hood and if this even makes sense!
I have noticed inconsistencies in Agenda displaying reminders. It will show some reminders but not others - even reminders in the same list. They show up in Reminders correctly, but not in Agenda. (First reported here: Agenda not showing some reminders) I’m not sure why that is. I did notice these reminders having a start date in GoodTask. When I removed all the start dates, Agenda displayed them all. I don’t know if it was because of start dates, or if editing the tasks caused them to force a sync.
I am very close to giving up on Reminders integration entirely. I have tons of trouble with it - and so I just can’t trust it. @drewmccormack and/or @mekentosj have previously stated that reminders don’t have a consistent ID - that changing a reminder can actually change it’s underlying ID. I really don’t understand how Apple could have such a bizarre implementation - but if that’s true, then it’s no surprise I would have so much trouble with it.
Please consider integrating with a reliable task manager. Things, OmniFocus, Todoist, I don’t care: anything that works reliably. I know people will complain if you don’t pick their favorite one, but something is better than nothing.
Right now Reminders integration is worse than nothing in my experience. When it works, it’s awesome! But it stops working, and is untrustworthy, and that’s a fatal flaw for any kind of productivity system.
Final point: there are multiple businesses out there that have made it their purpose to handle task management effectively. Reminders is an itsy bitsy teeny weeny little feature in Apple’s gargantuan ecosystem. I believe it would be in Agenda’s users’ best interest to collaborate with an organization that makes their task management product a foundational aspect of their business.
