Grouped tasks be moved to history even if parent task isn't complete

DB

I like to separate some tasks by type, having them grouped under a "title task" that has the asterisk (*) preceding it. The problem here is that the grouped tasks beneath it aren't moved to history unless the parent task is completed. (follow this help for more info: https://todoist.com/Support/showQuestion/446/)

I would like to suggest that this be a setting option so that I may use these task "dividers". For instance, the setting option could be: move all completed items to history, not mattering if they are "grouped" items. I believe this would be extremely simple to implement.

Thanks in advance,

Diogo

David, do you think this would be possible? really miss the reordering of indented tasks according to due date "inside" the task... just need them to be moved to history regardless of top task being completed. I think it should be a simple "if" condition to allow this. thanks, Diogo

Hello Diogo,

any task beneath a "title task" with an asterisk will instantly be moved to history upon completion if it's not added as a sub-task of the *-task unless you hold down SHIFT when clicking on its check box which will force a move to history for any task even if it's an intended sub-task.

Furthermore, it is possible to sort sub-tasks by date or priority. If all sub-tasks are on the same indent level, using the sort option will sort them all by date or priority, but only within its parent task. If you have multiple parent tasks with sub-tasks, each group will be sorted separately.


Best regards,
David

David, where can we find a conclusive list of all the keyboard shortcuts? Feels like there are more available than what the "Help" page shows us.

Hello Poyan,

The complete list of all keyboard shortcuts supported by Todoist can be found here: https://todoist.com/Help/viewHelp

It's missing an entry on the Shift+check mechanism for sub-tasks, though, we will add it in the future.


Best regards,
David
