How is 12:00am read?

Hi, Does Toodledo's automated email reminder service read 12:00am as midnight of the day *after* the reminder is set for? Here's an example:

I have set a reminder for November 25th, at 12:00am, and have the 5 hour email reminder set up. I received a reminder email at 6pm on November 25th, which leads me to believe that it is set to read 12:00am on the date scheduled actually as 12:00am of the next day. Either that or the reminder is really late. Please help.

Thanks!

Sorry to butt in here, but how do you actually start a new topic on the Forum?

12:00am is the same as midnight. So, 12:00am on Nov 25th, is right between the 25th and 26th

I think that is technically incorrect. I believe 12:00am on Nov 25th should be between the 24th and 25th as the date changes to the next day when the clock strikes midnight. So 12:00am midnight should be the very first hour of Nov 25th, not the last.

Let me know if I am missing something.

Thanks!

That may be the case. We'll look into it. In the meantime, if you want to be extra careful with your times, you could avoid 12:00am and instead type in 12:01am or 11:59pm to make it very clear which day you are talking about.

Hope that helps
