Hello Marius,

Please clarify:
- Are these parent tasks or sub-tasks?
- Do you change the view between projects or resync the app after completing them?

Best regards,

It is parent tasks. I have tried to resync, but it didn`t helped. Now I tried to change view and it worked. All my completed tasks disappeared. Thanks!

But shouldn`t it happened automatically?

It doesn't happen fully automatically because after you complete a task, you can always still tap on it to un-complete it in case you've completed it accidentally. However, if you change the view, the app assumes that you won't be editing these tasks anymore and remove them.

We will consider adding an option to view all completed tasks via mobile and then it would probable be possible to remove them right away as you'd be able to access them elsewhere.

Best regards,

I have the same problem. This is really awful UX!

In case I have widget with "Today" view and complete any task: I should go to the app then, change 'view, back to "Today", exit app, look on widget, change view there and back again to "Today" and finally I have something that's on one click or swype in other todo apps in Android and iOS.

I love Todoist a lot, but this pushes me to dream about Any.do and others...about 20 times a day. :( Todoist is much better, has much more functions...correct this please. What about settings? Or "Completed" view?

Thank you for your awesome work,
