File request deadlines

I have a drop box file request that I opened in November with a deadline of February 1. I want to extend the deadline to 2/19 at 8:00 am, but every time I select the new date and click save, the date automatically changes to 6 days from today. Subsequently, I've had to remove the deadline entirely, which is less than ideal. Is this a bug?

Re: File request deadlines

Hey guys,

 

Good news here, our engineering team have identified the problem that causing file request deadlines to reset to 6/7 days after the current date. A fix was rolled out last night and now the expiration date specified on the file request is respected properly. 

 

Thanks all!

Most likely is a bug. I'd definetly report on the Beta Testers Section.

This is happening on the website - I'm not using the desktop or Android software, and those are the only options on the Beta testers section.

Hmm... Try removing the deadline, refresh the page, then try to add it back again.
