Floating task issue revisited

Postby apelec » Thu Dec 15, 2016 7:22 am

This was reported previously by me and other's, but here is some additional info that may be useful for debugging.

I have two PC + one laptop, three users (all me, me1 me2 me3) , mySQL and no external sync. The calendar belongs to me1 and is fully share with me2 and m3.

Two floating tasks on different days where created in the past showing on all three devices as normal. The laptop was not used for a while and during that time the tasks were completed and marked as such on the two PC.

Two days ago I powered up the laptop connected to my LAN, open VM to find the floating tasks back and marked un-completed. This has propagated to the two PC.

The task is now floating every day.

How would you suggest I marked it completed at the original completion date.

I can understand the conflict between the local dB and the mySQL but this should be looked at and a solution found please. A simple popup warning asking the user what to do would be better that what we have.

Thanks

Hi apelec, thank you for the information. Is "Share event completion status" checked in the Sharing Options on all 3 computers? If the box is unchecked on any of the computers, that might explain the problem. I'll do some more research to see if I can find anything else that might have caused the task completion to get reset.

Are we closer to a solution Dan?

The issue has not gone away, the sync between my three devices is not correct.

To recaps was I have seen today:

A floating task created and marked completed on by user2 on PC2 is not listed in the Task list as expected.
That same task is marked as completed on user1 PC1 but is still list in the Task list.
That same task is no listed anywhere on PC3. It witched off between creation and completion of the task.

A other two floating tasks marked completed by user2 on PC2 is not listed in the Task list on PC2 and PC1 BUT is still marked overdue on user3 PC3.

PC1 and PC2 are on 24/7. PC3 is a laptop which is sync prior taking it off site.

User1 on PC1 owns the calendars, full share with User2 and User3, no external sync.
VueMinder connects to a local mySQL linux server.

Ultimate 2017.01

I am sorry to say I am loosing faith :(
