Is it possible to change the completion date of a task?


When I mark a task complete it automatically moves to the completed tasks section (which I can acces after accessing 'Karma productivity trend'). However it automatically determines the day you mark a task as completed as the completion day of the task.

Sometimes I check off yesterday's tasks the next morning and unfortunately they appear as though they would have been completed that day. Is there a way to change the completion date manually?

Hello Jeff,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to manually change the completion date of a task, but we may consider adding such option in the future and you're welcome to vote for it in our Votebox: https://todoist.com/Vote/show/6394/

Best regards,

I also came across this issue. Would be helpful to include this option.

Best regards, Jos

Please add this option, even if it's just via the API. I want to import my task history from another system into Todoist, and that's currently not possible to do accurately because I can't set completion dates.

Many times I forget to check off a task - then after a couple days go through and check everything off - it would be great to be able to change the completion date back to actual day that the task was completed.

+1, I would hope this wouldn't be a big deal. The other part of this is being able to view the completion dates for inputting into reports and other tracking systems.

Yes, I need this feature too. Perhaps adding an arbitrary date is too much. allowing one or two days back would let us indicate tasks accomplished over a weekend.

+1 I often miss marking a task done until the next day, sometimes by accident, and sometimes on purpose (if, for example, I've done the task, but am waiting for feedback to make sure all is well).
