Prevent collaborators from deleting tasks


Hi all,

Is there a way to prevent collaborators from intentionally or unintentionally:
- delete a task
- delete completed tasks

Is there a way so we can see all "activities" taken place in a project, or all projects?

It's a great product and hope I can find out more about it.

Hello Mazmur,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to prevent collaborators from performing certain actions on tasks. Please only invite people to your important projects, that you can trust that they won't do any damage in them.

You can see the activity in shared projects through the alerts section - each time someone adds a task for you, completed your tasks or adds a comment, you'll be notified.

Best regards,

Thanks David,

Can I at least get notified when someone delete tasks from a project I am involved in?

The alerts seem basic, I guess you guys have no such "activity" page yet as per Basecamp?

I love Todoist and I hope to switch our company from Basecamp to your platform.
