Possible to Edit Date in Completed Tasks??


Hi there,

I am new to todoist and have used many todo apps in the past. I really wish I could edit the date a task was completed. Often times I will not mark a task completed as soon as I get it done (especially if it was late at night) and I will mark it "complete" in the morning. I noticed that the Completed Tasks Metrics report will list the items as if I just completed them this morning, but that is not correct.

Any plans to enable users to edit at least the Date an item is completed???



PS. I am a dedicated user of TeuxDeux and currently have a paid account with them. Just thought I'd give this App a shot.

Hello Maria,

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, that's indeed not possible in Todoist and for now we have no plans to enable such option, but we may consider it for the future.

Best regards,

I just paid for ToDoist Premium and was hoping for better access to completed tasks by date. I echo exactly what Marie is requesting. I had a long day yesterday and did not have time to enter everything completed.

Also, in a project, you sometimes need to show an accurate timeline of accomplishments. Need the ability to change the completion date.

This is a much needed feature. For like Kirk I sometimes finish task late at night and as I am planning my day the next day update completed task that morning. This is particularly annoying when I have daily recurring task that get's marked completed the next day. The new entry for that take to be performed on that day does not show.

I would like to add my voice to the request for this feature to be added

Access and editing completed items is one of only complaints I have about Todoist. I wish I could edit completed items and turn them into re-occuring tasks, instead of re-typing the task when I've forgotten to do that before marking it as complete.

Recurring tasks can be based on the completed date of a previous task but we have no way of editing that date. We really need an option where we can click 'Completed On' and choose a date and time that something was done.

Maybe they could tell us how many +1s are necessary to "consider it for the future"...

I forgot to mark my task complete. Now I did not reach my daily 5 goals :-(
