Completed tasks disappear from projects

New user, so UE a distinct possibility. Can't find explanation in prior dialog.

Started loading projects into ToDoist. Nice product; but I need to keep track of those things that have been completed. When I check them off, they entirely disappear.

Hello Gar,

That's an intended behavior for parent tasks. Only sub-tasks will remain on the list until their parent task is completed.

However, you can access these tasks later by entering the project in which they were completed and clicking on the circular icon in the bottom-right corner.

Additionally, with Todoist Premium, you could keep track of all completed tasks from all projects at once, filter them by date, project, label and visualize your productivity through the Karma score -> View All Completed option in the top-right corner.

Best regards,

Gar Robbins

Aha! User Error, as suspected. Thank you for the quick bailout.

For me, the whole point of a to do list is to see these items crossed off. This gives a sense that things are done. If I am looking at today, but all the tasks I completed today are gone, I really have no idea what I have done (assuming I did a lot that day).

Is there a plan to include a feature (similar to just about any other to do list program) that when you complete a task it crosses itself and moves to the bottom of the list...and stays there without out having to click around and find it?

I can't say when this would happen but its possible.

I would really love to have this functionality-- keeping the task item in place (whether it's a parent task or not) when it's checked off. At least having the option would be wonderful.

I totally agree, it's a function I also have been looking for this whole afternoon and gravely miss...

Helo Todoist support team.
This is really necessary option to have. I just started to use Todoist for sharing my activities with my manager and I'd love tasks which I complete to stay crossed at the same place, so that my manager looks and understands which tasks I have already completed.

Is there any chance to add this option?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Besik,

Unfortunately, this is not something we're planning to add anytime soon but we'll consider it for future development.
