Karma points for completed projects?

i'm a bit new to Todoist in that i've only recently begun using it faithfully-- i adore it!

i am wondering why we don't get "credit" for completing *entire projects*. tasks are awesome, but the reason tasks are there is so that we can conquer large milestones, i.e., projects. what am i missing? :)

Hello Melissa,

Technically, you can't complete projects in Todoist. They're mainly used as "categories" or "folders" to which you put tasks that have a common theme or are related in any way (home, work etc.).

They can indeed be used differently, though and after you're done with a project, you can archive it, but this won't give you Karma points.

As a workaround, you could either create a tasks/sub-tasks structure where the main task would represent the final goal or simply add a "special" task to each project which would be "Complete all tasks" (in this project) and check it off once you're done with everything else and it's time to archive the project.

Best regards,
