Essential PIM for IOS and Google Tasks

Post by DavidN »

I have been using the Google tasks app on my iphone and it works well. I have recently installed the IOS app on my iphone and allowed the app to access my contacts, calendar and Google tasks. However, the dates of the tasks are not displaying accurately on the EPIM app.

For example what is showing as a task for today on my desktop and within Google tasks app on my phone is correct. However, the date on the EPIM app is a day later. So what is today on the Google App and on my desktop is noted as today and on the EPIM app for IOS it is showing as tomorrow.

Is there perhaps a setting that I am missing or is this a bug?

Please check if the time zone settings are identical on all your devices/services.

Thank you. My PC is set to UTC-05:00 Eastern Time (US & Canada). The iphone is set to New York. So I believe they are the same.

Please advise.

If you sync EPIM iOS with Google Tasks, please make sure the time zone setting in Google Tasks (Calendar) is identical to the one on your iPhone.

I have confirmed that they are the same. The dates in the EPIM app do not match the dates in the google tasks app.

Which time zone do you have in Google? Will specifically check out that time zone on our side. Thanks!

Okay, do you sync iOS EPIM with Google Tasks or with Windows EPIM or there's both synchronizations involved?

I sync tasks from my PC to Google tasks and from google tasks on my phone to the EPIM app. I hope this helps.

So when tasks from WinEPIM get synced to Google Tasks, the dates are correct? Only when tasks from Google Tasks find their way into iOS EPIM, the dates are off by one day? And we're talking about Due Dates?

Yes. You are correct. The tasks are correct in Google tasks and on the Google Tasks app. The due dates are off on the EPIM App.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

We're unable to reproduce this on our side, unfortunately. And there's no other similar reports. So something must be definitely wrong with the time zone settings. You say your time zone settings in Google is New York but I don't see a New York time zone in the list on Google, see the screenshot attached.
