Is it possible to archive old projects?


I really like how when you complete tasks within a project todoist keeps a record of all of the completed tasks.

Is it possible to do the same with projects? I have completed projects that I don't want to appear any more, but I still want to have a record of all of the tasks that were required for them.

I know you can delete projects, but this will also delete all of the tasks and entire record of the project. Is there a "hide project" option?

Hello Eric,

unfortunately, right now there is no such option, but thank you very much for the idea, we appreciate it and will consider adding it in future development.

Best regards,

I have a blank, empty Project that's named " - - - ", and I put all my completed Projects under that separator. It's not perfect, but it does get my completed Projects out of my line of sight when I'm working on current Projects.

Hope that helps a little!

Ah, Deb that's an awesome idea. Thanks!

David, glad to hear I'm not crazy and missed something big.

I think this is a buzzword for such kind of so great tool!

Yes, I wish ToDoIst had this functionality also.

I, too, need something to do with my completed projects.

Hello Carrie,

With Todoist Premium, you can right-click on a project and choose "Archive" from the context menu. This would move the project the the "Archive" section where you can always browser and, if necessary, unarchive it anytime.

Archiving is really a good idea, especially if the task is time-stamped when you archive it.

Take a look at the (coding) for latest Gmail update. You can swipe (stroke out/fling) the entry and it is either deleted or chucked into archives depending on your preference (which is found in your settings)!

This feature is a real selling point of one TDs competitors. But with this an implementation like Google's, TD would easily take the crown as king of all Task/Organizer apps.
