How to see the completed tasks?

when used Astrid I like about him Feature: All that execution - crossed.
1. We see progress
2. We see the job done (sometimes need to see something)
3. You can cancel accidentally deleted

And when you're performing a simple shakes up the phone and all leaves

If your tasks are parent tasks, then completing them will indeed remove them from the list although on mobile, when you complete them, as long as you don't change the view and go to a different project, you will see them crossed out, can tap on them and un-complete them.

If your tasks are sub-tasks, then they will stay completed on the list until their parent task is completed.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to view a detailed completed task list on mobile right now, but we'll add such option in the future.

On the web-version, you can view completed tasks by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right corner when you enter a project or, with Todoist Premium, click on the Karma score in the top-right corner, go to "View All Completed" where you'll see all your completed task sorted by time and you can filter this list by date, project or label and also visualize your productivity.

Feel free to check it out with Todoist Premium. If it won't meet your expectations, you can ask us for a full refund within 30 days of purchase.

Best regards,

Hi David,

One comment I have on the "View All Completed" display is that tasks against archived projects show an "Undefined" rather than the actual project. If I'm trying to remember what I did last week and have archived the project this can make it difficult.

Why is there no explicit option to view the completed tasks? its a vital part of any todo list to track which particular task is complete and how much progress is made on a specific project. Is there a way to turn this on my default so that I dont have to switch it on each time I select a different project

Hello Pervez,

Unfortunately, it's currently not possible to have completed parent tasks stay on the list, but if you'd like to see what's been done towards the main goal, please set it as a parent task and then all other steps as sub-tasks.

If you complete a sub-task, then it will actually stay on the list crossed out until you complete the main parent task.

Best regards,

Thanks David for your reply. I did not fully understand your suggestion about parent task.. Are you referring to individual project as parent task. I've my tasks created under project tab. Could you please explain or a share a video if there is any.

Basically if you have your tasks setup as the following..

- Task 1
---Task 2 Sub
-----Task 3 Sub

Then if you complete Task 2 and 3, they will show crossed out when completed, until the Parent task (Task 1) is done. If you completed Task 1, it does not do the same thing. So this option is only for Sub-tasks.

Thank you Brendon. This makes sense. So basically have to indent next task below to make it subtask of the above parent task. Hope I understood it correctly.

The issue reg. tasks completed in a shared project showing the project name as "Undefined" has now been fixed.
