Adding Tasks via RtM Site in Chrome Doesn't Always Parse Right

sharky says:
So, fairly regularly, I'll enter something like:

tomorrow #personal 11am Finance Numbers !2

Which as far as I understand should set a due date of tomorrow, add the item to my "personal" task list, set the time due to 11am and the priority level to 2...

... but all it does is add in an item where the title of the task is:

"tomorrow #personal 11am Finance Numbers !2"

What am I doing wrong to cause the app not to parse my task syntax properly? Is it a Chrome problem? A site problem? Apologies if this is elsewhere already... I wasn't sure how to search for it.

Hi sharky,
When using Smart Add, it's important to enter the name first, then the due date, then the other properties. You should find that

Finance Numbers tomorrow 11am !2 #personal

should work for you. Hope this helps!

Great! Thanks. I'll be sure to try to not let my brain get ahead of my typing on these in the future.
