No date fields in tasks anymore

Post by poet-man »

Sorry to create a new post, but couldnot find the old one anymore.
Opening an existing task or wanting to create a new one, willnot present beginn or duedate. Could create one this morning after reinstalling AEPIM, which presented the fields. But trying to create another one some hours later, wont show the fields.
Everything ok with events, but not with tasks, no matter which way I choose to create item.
Samsung Tab S4 on Android 10 and AEPIM 5.8.7
Anybody any idea?
Thanks

This issue is at support meanwhile. They have a video I created and will investigate it. Seems to be a bug that needs an update. So now I'm not allone having no date fields.
Meanwhile there are quite a lot of issues, that need an update.

Ok. What did they send you? An apk file to install? Can you attach it here?

Thank you

Sorry but my english comes from google translate.

a strange thing happened.

I asked support for the APK file and installed it (ver. 5.8.6). Shortly after, the Play Store gave me an update that wasn't available before (ver. 5.8.7). I have updated and have had so many problems.
I uninstalled AEPIM and redone the installation from Play Store which kept the 5.8.7 ver.

Now it works fine and I can change the dates.

In my case, 5.8.7 was available in Playstore all the time and of course installed on my tablet.
My real problems came up with 5.8.6. So I reinstalled 5.8.7 from Playstore again. Dont have any date fields with tasks again, but that's better than having all the other problems. I do have WinEPIM on my notebook, so I can create tasks there and sync.
BTW, what Android device do you have? I ask, because I do have the impression for long, that some problems exist on Samsung devices only, having a slightly different Android version.
Your English is quite ok ....
