Completed Task List


Is there a way to get a list of tasks completed....Yesterday, last week, date range, etc?

Is there a way to export this list?

Is there a way filter completed tasks? For example, I have projects for all of my work activities, but I also have a personal project for my personal stuff. I need to send a report of my completed items to my boss maybe daily or even weekly.

Thanks in advance. Just purchased the Pro Version of Todoist and am still getting into the swing of things.

I'm using the Mac version of the app, but I'd be willing to use the website if necessary to get this information.

Hello Todd,

Most of what you wrote is possible if you click on your Karma score in the top-right corner and choose "View All Completed" from this menu. This list will show completed tasks from all projects (incl. completion events of recurring tasks), but you can choose only a specific projects, a different timespan or even label.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to directly export this list. You can print it using the "Print current page" option from the gear icon in the top-right corner, but if you'd like to send it to someone via email, you could try to use a PDF converter ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/ ) and export the print view to a PDF document.

We will add more advanced exporting and reporting option in the future.

Best regards,

You can easily copy the list of completed items and paste it into a MS Word document or elsewhere. Once you select "View all completed," you can choose the time period you want to see from the menu at the top (e.g. past two weeks). Then you can either choose Select All from the Edit menu and copy, which will copy everything on the screen, or you can click to the left of "Today" at the top of the list, then (on the Mac, anyway), scroll down to the last item on the list, press the Shift key and click to select only the list of completed items (with dates & times), then copy.
In MS Word, if you just paste, the list will be pasted in HTML format, and it may take a good while for a long list to appear in the Word doc. If you choose "Paste Special" in Word, and then "Unformatted text" the list will be pasted almost immediately, although the pasted layout will be better when pasted in HTML format.

On a related note, I would like the option to continue to show tasks that were completed today - helps with a sense of accomplishment, especially with a long list. Thanks.

Yes. At present it appears that once you check off an item, it moves to the bottom, displays in grey with a line through it: that's perfect. Then it vanishes. It would be great to have an option to leave it at the bottom, in grey strikethrough. There's a serious motivation feature there, in seeing that those items have been taken care of.

The ability to export completed tasks would be great! I think after that, it would really feel like you own your data.
