New tasks automatically add an older date

Every time I add a new task, it populates with a date from the past in red; usually about one week in the past. Any idea why this is happening and now to fix it?

Hi @Kristin_Holmes, assuming you are on a Premium or Business account, it sounds like you (or someone else on the project) may have a rule running that sets any new task with a due date of -7 days… perhaps (!?), although I can’t think why someone would want to run a rule like that :wink:

Check the ‘Rules’ button on the right side of the top bar, next to ‘Fields’ so see what might be causing this and then simply deactivate it.

Hi I’m not on the business or premium - we just have about 5 users. I don’t see a rules button on my version.

Hi @Kristin_Holmes
That is very weird. The only time I have seen that before is when using repeating tasks with subtasks.
Can you outline the steps you are following to create the task and if possible some screenshots.

Okay…I’ll take some screen shots tomorrow. Thanks.
