Folder List for Add A Task


Posted: Mar 26, 2010

I just majorly re-arranged a bunch of tasks and in so doing archived a bunch of folders and deleted a fair few more. Everything is much cleaner now, but I think that maybe I've come across a bug. It has to do with clicking "Add a Task" in particular task views. The "Folder" dropdown in "Add a Task" is up to date and correct in all of my views except for Search and Calendar. In those two views, if I click Add A Task it shows all my folders - including the archived folders. I could understand if all the folders showed up in all views or if they didn't show up in any (my goal) but I'm a little perplexed as to why the folder list doesn't show up the same in all views.

Is there some difference in the way that the different views call the folder list that would cause this? I wouldn't imagine there should be, so the only thing I can think of is that perhaps this is a bug.

I took screenshots so I can send those on if need be.

I just tried this and I couldn't get any archived folders to appear in the "add task" section in the calendar or search are.

Are you sure that the folders are truly archived. To be fully archived they can't have any active tasks.

I'm pretty certain there aren't any active tasks in the archived folders. I can go back and verify that, though, if you'd like. Shouldn't the folder list dropdown consist of the same folders no matter what view you're in, though? Here are some screenshots so you can see what I'm talking about.

01 - 09 (Main - Search) shows my current folder list. The last two, "Search" and "Calendar" are different than the rest, showing folders that I've archived. It seems to me like it should be one way or the other. Even if I accidentally have some active tasks in those archived folders, shouldn't they show up in all my folder lists?


If you want me to email you the uncropped screenshots just let me know where to send them. I just didn't want to post it publicly. Thanks!

I was able to confirm this now. It is related to filters and whether there are active tasks in those archived folders. We'll work on a fix.
