I'm using Outlook 2013 and Outlook.com EAS to sync my calendars, contacts and tasks across platforms and onto my smartphone. The outlook.com account looks like I'm part of a Beta group as it has a very new look and in the main title for each section
it has the word (Preview). I have two outlook.com accounts, one old and one they "converted". I set this connection up between my Outlook 2013 and Outlook.com about a week ago using instructions on this website. In case it matters, my phone is an iPhone running
ios 9.2. My Windows OS is Win 7, Ultimate, 64bit, all maintenance applied to OS and Office.
The issue I'm having is that I use reoccurring monthly tasks, like pay a bill on the 28th, set to reoccur every 28th. I thought the issue originally had to do with my tasks being very old in 2013 and outlook.com couldn't understand them when I synced so I set them up all up as new tasks (deleted and added new tasks with a naming convention I could recognize as the new task.)
I set up a task, pay bill on the 28th with a reminder on the 28th at 10:00am. The task shows in Outlook 2013 and Outlook.com. I pay the bill on the 27th and place a check mark in the box beside the task in the To-Do view in Outlook 2013. The task is marked complete and a new task generates. The tasks in the To-Do view gets a strike through font, changes to greyed out and sits on the list for a period of time.
Here is where the issue starts, in Outlook.com it remains as overdue, says so right on screen. I check the task and it shows a start date of December 27, 2015 but the reminder shows January 28, 2016. (Outlook.com must be acknowledging the completion as it moved the reminder forward to next month.)
I thought I would wait a day or so to see if it was showing in Outlook.com until the original task cleared off my today to-do view in Outlook 2013. No luck, the completed task if off my to-do view in Outlook 2013.
Today I tried marking task completed both in Outlook 2013 and Outlook.com. No luck. Task would showed completed in outlook.com but if you refresh, F5 task view, the task resorts back to being overdue on December 28 or it moves reminder to Feb 28th. .
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or how do I get Outlook.com to acknowledge / sync the task for Decemeber 28th was completed? It should also be showing the generated task in Outlook 2013 for the next month.
After initiating thread... I tried creating the reoccurring task in outlook.com and them marked it complete in Outlook 2013. Same issue happens. Reminder moves to next date, task shows over due in outlook.com and start date was back dated one day. Outlook 2013 marked the task completed and regenerated task for the following month, exactly what it was supposed to do.
