View completed tasks not checked, still showing in task list

Post by GreatLakes » Sun Mar 10, 2013 5:27 pm

Hi Dan,

When I select all dates in the date selection from task list, then even completed tasks appear, even though from the main view menu I do not have "view completed" tasks checked.

Thanks.

Hi GreatLakes, this has been fixed in the next version. I'll post a reply when it's ready to download. In the meantime, you could filter the "Status" column so completed items aren't shown.

Thanks Dan,

I went to the filtering option in the task editor and saw where I can filter to exclude completion. I noticed when I did that that the "in progress" choice in the status menu of the task editor did not totally match the choices on the filter menu. "In process" seems to be missing from the filtering options.

Also what is the practical effect of the "none" box on the filtering menu? Just wondering.

Hi GreatLakes, the drop-down list I see when filtering the Status column of the Task List contains the same status values as the drop-down list in the Task Editor (when a task is opened). In neither place do I see status values of "In process" or "None". Instead, I see these values:
  • Not Started
  • In Progress
  • Completed
  • Waiting
  • Deferred
I'm not sure why you're seeing something different.

Hi Dan,

Sorry I meant "in progress", but your other post explained it. I had no status of "in progress" so that doesn't show up on the filter menu choice.

When I select all dates in the date selection from task list, then even completed tasks appear, even though from the main view menu I do not have "view completed" tasks checked.
Version 10.1.7 has been released. This version fixes the Task List to not show completed tasks when the "Show Completed Tasks" option in the View menu is unchecked. Note, if a parent task has not been completed, but has completed subtasks, those completed subtasks will still appear in the list. However, when the parent task is completed, the task and all its subtasks will be hidden.
