Delete Completed Actions

B

I marked as Completed 2 actions but I was only testing the site. They were fake actions just in order to experiment how things work here. Can I delete them?
Thanks.

Hi Bruno,

Please clarify what you are referring to when you say Actions, so I can better help you. :)

If you are asking how to delete a task, you can accomplish this by right click on it, and choosing "Delete Task". You can delete a Project by following the same steps.

If you are wanting to delete your completed items, then unfortunately this is only possible with the Premium version of Todoist.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Thanks a lot for your quick answer, Brendon.
My question was really about deleting completed items.
Now I understand that in order to do so, I have to have Premium version.
Thanks,
Bruno :)

Hello Bruno,

Please note that there are two ways to view completed tasks:

1. Within the project - by clicking on the circular icon in the bottom right corner. Those can actually be deleted on a free account using the "Delete completed" option from the "Task Actions" icon at the top of the list.

2. Through the "View All Completed" list from the Karma score menu. This list is the one that indeed requires Todoist Premium to get accessed.


Best regards,
David

Thanks, David.

But I already deleted the project I had.
It was a test-project, just to figure out how TODOIST works.
But the completed tasks I had on that project and that appear on the right top of the screen remain there and I think I only can delete them being Premium.
Best,
Bruno

Huh?

Hello,

That's correct, accessing the "Karma" -> "View All Completed" list to see all tasks completed in all project is a Premium-only feature.


Best regards,
David

Hi, Im a premium user, and I can"t find a button anywhere, not in the desktop version and not in the browser, to delete completed tasks. The only way I can make them disappear is by "uncomplete" them and then delete them in the uncompleted section. Is that normal?
Thanx, Roel (very happy user)

Hello Roel,

To delete completed tasks within a project, please enter the project (on the web), then click on the tools icon (a pencil and a wrench) at the top of the task list in this project (which says "Task actions" if you hover over it) and you'll find the "Delete completed tasks" option there.

Note - this will only delete completed elements within this project, it will not affect the "Karma score -> View All Completed" history (in the top-right corner).


Best regards,
David
