Navigation guard when editing tasks to avoid data loss

Currently when I am editing a task, and then navigate to another view using the side menu, then any changes I already made in the task are simply ignored without warning.

To avoid accidentally losing small or large changes that way (and not even noticing it), Everdo should show a confirmation dialog when any changes have already been made and the user is moving away from the edit page. That dialog should ask to either save or cancel.


Hi I also noticed this and made this post Less volatile actions in Android app where Andrei fixed some of the problems in the next Android release. Hope it helps!

Great! But the problem exists in the Desktop (Windows) app as well.

+1 this happens to me pretty often too

Will try to look at it soon.


If a task editor is open and there were changes, the cofirmation dialogue (“do you want to save or cancel?”) should also appear when pressing “Esc” or quitting the application.

Oh yes, I should also have reported this!

I stop counting the number of times it happened to me: writing something and clicking somewhere else either to look for some information or intentionally to close the edit window (default behavior with Google Keep that I am also using, for instance). Then I lose everything; this is very frustrating!

I have created a ticked to this suggestion with normal priority.


I think normal priority isn’t suitable. This issues means data loss and user frustration. Also, this shouldn’t be that hard to implement!
