Today and yesterday (at least) I can’t get parsing to work as it used to. So writing tasks like “Do this next week” will not parse “next week”. I’ve tried many different dates, such as “this month”, “mon”, etc. but nothing is parsed.6 months, 2 weeks ago SethParticipant
Thanks for letting us know. We’re using a Google service for parsing text and recently they changed the service API. So, we’ve had a few glitches since October. It’s currently working now.6 months, 2 weeks ago Leo7689Participant
Same for me. Parsing worked a couple of hours ago, but it suddenly stopped. Relaunching skedpal or my computer doesn’t change anything.6 months, 2 weeks ago SethParticipant
HI @Leo7689, yes, it was down for a short time and it’s up again. As mentioned, we’re dealing with an unstable interface with the changed service we’re using. If we have to choose who to blame between Google and us, it’s probably us!
Please don’t restart your desktop app as this service is totally in the cloud.
Apologies for the inconvenience and we’ll do the best we can to stabilize this service as soon as we can.5 months, 3 weeks ago adam_hereParticipant
Parsing does not seem to work again. Noticed this yesterday, and it still does not work for me on either desktop or in the Android app.5 months, 3 weeks ago SethParticipant
Thanks for letting us know. It’s fixed now. Although it’s more stable, it does seem to break occasionally.5 months, 3 weeks ago adam_hereParticipant
Thank you, Seth! Working like a charm again.5 months, 1 week ago user_de_skedpalParticipant
I have been using Skedpal for a few weeks now, and this is one thing I have not been able to get to work at all. I just tested with one of the examples from the Skedpal site. I tried putting this text “Call John 5 mins on Wed” to my Skedpal email. I tried it once with this text in the subject, and once with this text in the first line. I can see this potentially being a very handy feature for when I process incoming to-do’s in my e-mail.

When sending an email to your SkedPal inbox, the subject of your email is always used to create the task title.
Then, you can optionally add parsing parameters in the first line of the body of the email. In the example you provided, you’re using the task title in the body of the email. This will not work. So, the correct way to do it is to use ‘Call John’ as the subject of the email. And, then use ‘5 mins on Wed’ in the first line of the body of the email.5 months, 1 week ago user_de_skedpalParticipant
Perfect, it worked! Thanks for the reply. I might suggest reviewing your knowledgebase article to make sure what you described above is extra clear. Thanks again and looking forward to the continued development of Skedpal.
