Completing Tasks 2 minute read

Click the checkbox beside a task to mark it as complete. You can choose to keep completed tasks visible by setting that preference at the team level.

When you’re finished with a task, you can click the checkbox (to the left of the task name) to complete it.

You can also quickly complete a task by hitting Shift-C on your keyboard.

Once you do, a check mark will appear, the task name will grey out, and the task will disappear from the active project. Even though it’s no longer active, you can still find this task by using the global search in the blue navigation bar or by clicking the “View Completed Tasks” link at the bottom of your project and searching manually.

Clicking "View Completed Tasks" will bring you to a page that lists all completed tasks for that project, as well as the date that they were completed.

In some instances, you may need to reopen a completed task. To do so, just click the check mark to restore the empty checkbox. Your task will be added back to the active project it was originally in.

If the task you’re looking for was filed in a project that has been completed, you can still use the search bar to look for it or click "Archived Projects" in Favorites to search for it manually. Tasks in archived projects cannot be reopened and must have their project restored first.

Clear Completed Tasks Manually

If your organization would prefer to see completed tasks in the active project view to keep track of how much is being completed each day or week (and to see how much there is left to complete), you can enable the clear completed tasks manually feature for individual teams.

Going forward, any tasks you complete will remain in the project view with a green check mark next to the task name.
