Done Tasks



Is there anyway to hide or do away with done tasks automatically?

    Not that I'm aware of, but if I want to do this, I'll sometimes create a sheet for "completed tasks" and move them over once completed on the original sheet. (This can be done by highlighting a row, right clicking & 'Move to another sheet'). 


    I'll sometimes sort my tasks, so I can move all completed tasks in bulk.


    If you find out a way to automate this, I'd love to know. 




  • Sulaiman, you might also consider using a Filter to filter out the completed tasks from your sheet (http://help.smartsheet.com/customer/portal/articles/504659), assuming you're using a column in your sheet to mark that the task has been completed.


    There's a blog post from the Support team here that outlines a couple of other ways you might organize completed tasks in a sheet: https://www.smartsheet.com/blog/support-tip-organizing-completed-tasks


    Hope that helps!

  • I use Conditional Formating to Strikethrough when a check box is ticked and then intermittently move to an indented row which can be minimised.  The good thing here is the to-do list is kept clean and you have a historical list of completed tasks.

  • I do what Adam mentioned and it works great. My conditional format makes the completed task grayed out and strikethrough, then I can use a filter on the column to hide them.

    Then you must be looking forward to saved filters as much as I am.





  • QUESTION... Would anyone know the formula to do the following? When I check done 'done' box I want the '% complete' column to automatically move to 100%


    I already have the rule in place for when 'done' is checked that the row grays out and the text gets a strike through.

    I also have a rule in place when the project is 10 days out the status ball is green, then yellow then red...
