Remove completed tasks


How do I remove completed tasks from the displayed list? Tried Task actions/delete Completed Tasks, but no effect.

Hello Phil,

A completed task is deleted automatically from the list, unless it's a sub-task in which case they will all be removed when you complete their parent task. Alternatively, you can hold SHIFT while completing a sub-task to force it to move to history right away.

To remove already complete sub-tasks, please right-click on each and choose "Move to history" from the context menu.

Best regards,

Is there a way to set as a default that any completed tasks are removed out of sight always, without having to do anything else. ie. I don't want to see them greyed out with a strike through.

Hi David,

Unfortunately, there's no way to do that.

+ 1 for David's Feature. Having to manually remove them all the time is not ideal.

+1 for David's feature as well. I don't actually mind as much if I can see them during the day. But would like for them to completely delete from the system within 24 hours or so. Or at midnight or anything! Don't want to find them in the productivity trend as well.
