I am clicking on TD logo, selecting different projects and then go back and they are still there.

Hi Lubomir,

Are these tasks sub-tasks? These types of tasks do not get removed until you complete the parent task. You can though, use SHIFT plus clicking on them to remove them.

Is it possible to hide completed tasks in a shared project? It looks to me like completed tasks automatically hide themselves in private projects, but they stay visible in projects that have been shared with me.

Are these shared tasks also sub-tasks? As that is the only time they stay visible is when they are sub-tasks, until the parent task is completed.

What if the parent task is actually just a header (e.g., *Class readings)? I seem to be having the same issue with sub-tasks not deleting, but they aren't really sub-tasks in the sense that I will never complete the parent task - because it is not a task, it is a heading.

Hello Lisa,

We don't support the * function anymore, but if you put sub-task under a task thet starts with *, same rules apply - sub-task will stay on the list unless you hold the SHIFT key while checking them off.

It would be very helpful if this were a global preference to hide completed tasks and sub-tasks. I have dozens of completed subtasks and according to this thread, I would need to uncheck and recheck each of them while holding SHIFT to hide them... (-1)

I clicked on the "show completed tasks" icon by accident, so now I have a list full of completed tasks that are not sub-tasks. I just want to re-hide those.

The next time you refresh the page, the completed tasks should be hidden again.
