Does "Completed" delete a task? If not, how do you completely delete it?
If the task is scheduled to repeat daily, like on weekdays, does 'Completed' only remove it from that one day instead of all days?

Hello Louis,

"Complete" moves the task to the history which you can see on the web by clicking on the circular icon below your task list in a project. You can delete tasks from there by clicking on the tools icon at the top and choosing the "Delete completed" option.

In case of recurring tasks - you can complete a recurring tasks for the last time by holding the SHIFT key while checking it off or right-clicking on it and choosing "Move to history". That's not available on the iOS app yet, though.

Best regards,

Hi David, when I check complete on Outlook Todoist it becomes grey but does not automatically move to history. I have to activate move to history and then click on refresh button to get rid of it of the list which is just one extra step too many :)

Hi Sabrina,

Are these sub-tasks? Sub-tasks were designed this way so they can be used to keep track of your progress.

Hi Clyde, yes indeed they are sub tasks. I see so the idea is leaving them there greyed out to see what tasts were completed under the main task. gotcha! Although I personally prefer to clear them off as I go as fast as I can :) Wish there was an option for that cos it's a bit of a pin having to add two steps to each sub task to be erased from list.
