"Delete completed tasks" not deleting...

DN

- choose Task actions > Delete completed tasks
- choose OK
- experience sorrow that tasks are still visible

I get the same issue in the Chrome extension.

Mac OS 10.8.5
Chrome 33.0.1750.117

Here's a screenshot:

Am I doing it wrong?

Thanks,
Doug

Hello Doug,

This feature only works for tasks that are completed as in - removed from your task list. If you enter a project, you can click on a circular icon at the bottom of the list to show completed task - these are the ones that the "Delete completed" option removes.

The tasks on your screenshot are sub-tasks which stay "active" on the list until you complete their parent task - then the whole structure gets moved to the history and you can clear the history using "Delete completed".

If you don't want sub-tasks to stay on the list, please hold the SHIFT key as you check them off. To remove the ones that you've already checked off, please right-click on each and choose "Move to history".


Best regards,
David
