Hello Karen,

You can add tasks with past dates if you include the year (10 Jan 2014 or "every day starting 10 Jan 2014").

Also, if you like to see which tasks have been completed at all times, we recommend to use sub-tasks. A completed sub-task will stay on the list until you complete its parent.

Best regards,

Sorry - are you suggesting that the completion date be added to the description/title of the task, for tasks that were completed in the past, rather than use the date selector?

If you create a task with a past date, when you complete it, it will show the date you added to that completed task, just like all tasks. So if it's Jan 10 2013, that is what it would be, just like if you completed a task today for a task dated for feb 09 2014, that would be the date.
