Mark a task in the inbox as complete

I want to mark a task in my inbox as complete but I can't see how. Previous queries mention check boxes but I don't have these?

I'm sure its really straightforward but I'm not getting anywhere so can you help please?

Hello Allison,

Every task in every project has a check box on the left side of it, you can click on it to mark the task as completed. Unless you've added an asterisk * in front of the task's name, you should see the check boxes.

Please try to log out, clear your browser's cache, reload the browser and log back. If the issue persists in two different browsers, please send a screenshot showing it to david@doist.io and brendon@doist.io

Best regards,

Thanks David
Because the check boxes are colored by priority I didn't realise it was a check box.

All sorted now - thanks

I agree, the coloured check-boxes are too subtle and I was looking everywhere for an option to mark as complete.

Agreed - this threw me too.
I think we tend to expect a checkbox to be an empty box.
Adding a fill colour to the checkbox seems to make it lose its affordance.

As Christopher said... I was looking all over... clicking, searching menus.

Love the product though! :-)

I did the same thing. Expecting checkbox to be "empty", but thanks to this thread, i completed my first task!


Great product
