Reoccurring tasks appearing twice in one day


#1

Hi there. I’m enjoying OmniFocus having purchased it last month.

I have set up a number of repeating tasks. When I look at the forward calendar they appear once; but by the time that day rolls around they appear twice in the day. Can anyone point to what I’m doing incorrectly? Thanks

Only thing I can think of is the repeat is set for twice a day (every 12 hours). Would you be able to list some of the settings from the Inspector? You might also ask in the other forums (for Mac and general); someone there might have seen the same issue.

Can you post a screenshot of the today screen?

It might be the action is tagged with the today screen tag, as well as due that day?

IThanks all! Here is a screen shot it today.

Physio appears twice. It happens with other reoccurring tasks

Hope these uploads work. Thanks for your help.

Here is the task


#6

Is the repeat set to “completion”?

And how’s the timing set for the Today view?


#7

Is your “Physio exercises” task nested under “Start up routine”? If so, I imagine the problem is both of those being set to repeat.


#8

I’ve had this before when I inadvertently marked a completed repeating task as incomplete and then completed it again - this caused me to have two identical tasks.


#9

Right. This could be the issue. Did you just delete the task and start over?

Thanks deaghean! No- it’s not unfortunately.

Hi Janov. Thanks for your thoughts. It’s not set to completion- it your question did make me check 🙂

I deleted one of them and that was it, no duplicates :)
