Hello Team,

We are using Microsoft To Do Graph API & we have seen the lastModifiedDateTime field of Task/List object is getting updated with @odata.etag value after every 5 minutes automatically. This issue was not found till March,21. Can you please provide the reason for this update?

    Can you check and confirm if there is no service etc. from your end that is updating task as a result of which lastModifiedDateTime field is getting updated?
    Also were you able to isolate issue from the code and repro issue using Graph Explorer/Postman?

    @Shweta Choudhary We are also facing the same issue. The timestamp of Task/List object is automatically getting updated.

    This is expected behaviour for To-Do APIs as after task creation few background computations can modify the task metadata which will modify the lastModifiedDateTime property of the task.
    One way to handle it at the client side is to ignore these updates if there is no change in the data that the client is interested in.
