TOPIC: Task with alarm, select "Completed" doesn't work.

Task with alarm, select "Completed" doesn't work. 1 Year, 10 Months ago  
I just recently upgraded to the latest release of Rainlendar Light (Version 2.11 (b128) 64 bit). I am not using any 3rd party calendars, just the Task capability for To-do items. I have been using Rainlendar for years, so I'm not new to the product and solely use it for Tasks/To-do function.

Since upgrading a couple days ago, I've noticed that Tasks (with alarms) that I have created before (and after) the update to this latest version have a problem. The problem is when the Alarm for a Task activates on screen, right clicking over it and selecting "Completed" is not working. The Alarm continually represents itself and will not close the Alarm window on-screen.

The only way that I can get the Alarm window to close and go away (off screen) is to click on the "Dismiss All" icon that is part of the Alarm on-screen item. Rainlendar is flagging the Task as "Completed" because I see the check-mark next to the "Completed" status, but the Alarm window will not close on screen. If I select another option from the right click list such as "Snooze" for x-period of time, the Task Alarm window will close properly. So it appears this problem is only associated with selecting the "Completed" status.

I just wanted to share this for investigation and thank-you for a truly great product!

Ok, I'll see why the alarm doesn't get dismissed.

I don't know if it matters (or would be helpful), but these Tasks with alarms that are not closing after selecting "Completed" are one-time, non-recurring Tasks. I have noticed that on my "recurring" Tasks that are set to alarm over a recurring timeframe, clicking on the "Completed" selection does close the alarm window. So this problem looks to be associated with a Task that has just one completion date/time setting.

I just performed a small test by creating a (non-recurring), single instance "Test" Task with an alarm setting of (1) minute before the time due. When it alarmed, I saw the same problem I've described of not being able to get the Alarm window to close when selecting "Completed". I also created a separate Task called "Task recurring" that was set to recur every day with the same alarm of (1) minute before due. When it alarmed, I selected "Completed" and the Alarm window closed. Of course that alarm was returning the Task to a recurring state of alarming at the same time tomorrow based upon my settings. But I wanted to share this with you in case it helps you zero-in on the problem.

Again, best Task scheduler and alarm program I've ever used!! So, I'm very happy to help if you need anything else from me.
