Completed tasks list
I would really love to be able to view a list of completed tasks ordered and marked by the date they were completed. I currently update tasks I complete with today's date before checking them complete, but the above would be far better. (also being able to export that list)

I second this. Being able to review my completed tasks would make much easier to fill out my timesheets. Also, sometimes I forget if I did something for a project, being able to see completed tasks would allow me to confirm I've done it.

Yes being able to see completed tasks from the past week would be of great assistance to me as I primarily use todoist at work. I love the other tracking features!

This is one of the key benefits to promote how effective ToDoist is - showing how much productivity has increased. This could even be used to map out time spent on projects, creating productivity pie charts, etc.

+1. This is the only thing missing from Todoist that I need: To query after @labeled tasks that are marked 'done'. Being able to query after completed tasks within a date range would also be helpful.
I can toggle on completed tasks in the project view, but what I need to see are the tasks I set as goals week after week. Being able to review my progress on short-term and long-range goals is immensely helpful.

Seeing the date completed, even if it's not a sortable list, would be a very nice feature.

I second what everyone is saying - it would be a really useful feature to see completed tasks.

But now, as it's done, Im missing "bulk delete" option. You can delete it only one by one.
thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it and will consider adding a "delete all" option in future development.
For now, you can still delete all completed tasks in each project by clicking "Delete completed" in the bottom-right corner of each task list.

"Delete completed" works for me and could be enough if it only worked. What I mean, these deleted tasks are stlll shown on "xxx completed tasks" list. So the only way to delete them is to use crossbar on this page and delete them one by one, which is highly inconvenient.

@David, any news about it? I have like "774 completed" right now. This feature - as it is now - is only annoying.
although I can't give you any timeframe, we will surely implement such feature in the future.
Please note that the amount of the tasks on this list shouldn't influence the performance of Todoist and these tasks do not show up on any other views or query results.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
With Todoist Premium you can see the full history of your completed tasks sorted by date. You can filter this list by labels or projects and even see a graphical representation of your productivity.
On a free account, you can see your completed tasks by clicking on the "Get completed tasks" link at the bottom of every task list in any project.

Okay, so I created a "dummy" task, instantly deleted it (ie ticked it as "complete"). And *then* I could see an option to list a few other completed tasks.
Is there some better way to see completed tasks??
The "Get completed tasks" link at the bottom of your task list in any project is always visible even if no tasks have been completed yet, but in addition to this option you can view the full history incl. all completion events of every recurring task by clicking on the "# Completed" link in the top-right corner.

Okay, the "get completed tasks" link only appears at the bottom of a *project* list. My default view is "7 days" -- with no "get completed" link. So that's fine -- now that I know :-)
And the "# completed" link is good.
First time posting here, and I'm exciting to see so much staff input!
Is there a way to modify the completion date/time for completed tasks?
Why? I just got back from a conference and a lecture trip, and when I'm travelling and not at a computer much, or in the field collecting data especially, I'm not creating tasks and updating them, even though I'm getting a lot done.
The result is that I come home and have to scoff at my Todoist digest that says I've completed no tasks in the last 4 days. I either don't bother documenting what I've done during the trip, or I have a bumper day with 5 times the normal accomplishments.
If I could change the dates for completed tasks it would make my history a lot more accurate and thus informative as I try to identify my good and bad patterns.
Thanks for listening! Keep up the good work.
Thank you for your feedback. We may consider adding such option in the future, but for now, if you're taking any mobile phone with you during a trip, you can use our apps completely offline, check off tasks in them and when you connect at some later point, everything will be synced with the correct completion dates according to when you've checked them off.
@David I just tested checking off a task (both on mobile and in browser) whilst offline, and then after reconnecting to internet checked the completed task list. Both had the time of reconnecting to the internet as their time-stamp and NOT when I checked them off.
I'm pretty sure this has always been the case, and I've suggested changing it here https://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/467/
