undo complete


How do I mark a completed task as 'not completed'?

I thought 'postpone' was the same as snooze, so postponed a daily repeating task. Todoist marked today's event as complete and created tomorrow's event. However, today's event is not complete yet at all. I can't find anywhere that I can undo this.

Hello Sue,

Postponing doe not mark a task as completed, it just moves its due date to the next occurrence. Therefore, it's also not possible to undo this action, but you can edit the task and change its due date to "every day starting today" or "every day starting yesterday" or use any date after "starting".

It seems a tad clunky if I have to edit the task's due date to correct a simple mistake. For example, I accidentally 'completed' task today by swiping my screen the wrong way.
Completed non-repeating tasks appear in the completed list at the bottom and I can untick them.
In a number of other aps, repeating tasks that are marked as completed today, appear in today's completed list, while also resetting for the next event. If the completed item is reset (the completion revoked), the due date is reset to back to today.

If you accidentally complete a task that has a single date and is not recurring, you would see it on the list grayed out with a strikethrough, you could then tap on it and see an "uncomplete" option.

However, tasks that are recurring are not "completed" the same way as their date is moved to the next occurrence. You're welcome to add a request for an option to revert the completion of a recurring task: http://todoist.com/Vote_Android/

Guyz, it's really annoying thing, that i can't undo last action.
I have 3 times when i swiped task by mistake, and did not see which exactly (it was recurring, and it did not stay in tasklist).

UNDO - it's one of the most important things in EVERY software. Even google.mail has that feature, when we send mail.

All people make mistakes, so software must helps people to solve this.
