This is absolutely needed, right after dependent tasks. It should be your number 2 priority, can't imagine what is higher? Do you have a roadmap?

Please add me as another voice to request this - being able to mark completed as the time/date I actually completed it, not the date I check it off on the system . I'm a Pro subscriber, have used ToodleDo for several years and this is the most irritating thing about it.

This has been requested for years now and the condescending responses from Toodledo to this issue are becoming ever rarer.

When Toodledo do respond to this issue, it is as if their customers are an irritant.

Third party software such as AngelTasks have implemented this. If there is a reason why Toodledo don't want to allow this functionality, why not be straight with us and say so.

If it is against your design philosophy, too involved to implement or if there is another reason, please let us know.

Don't leave people hanging for years, with rare, condescending retorts that treat your customers like unreasonable children and pretend that you are going to implement this, when you have no intention of doing so.

I think TD is quite fair in its responses to requests in the forum.

They are not a huge company with unlimited resources, and a good proportion of its users do not pay anything to use the site. (And in fact will happily pay for 3rd party apps which piggy back on TD it seems.)

To comment on timeframes would be foolish, as it is not possible to forsee what problems might arise, or what other things might take priority.

The fact that you are still here regardless of this problem would indicate that its not a big issue, and that you can cope without it at the moment.

Allowing the completion date to be edited on the website would be a lot of work for us to implement and it is something that we have not prioritized. Yes, there are a few people who have been requesting this for years, but the vast majority of users complete tasks and then never look at them again. Editing the completion date of an already completed task is not something that most people need to do. We aren't saying that we wont ever do this. It is on our to-do list, and we will get to it at some point. I just can't say when that will be.

Ok, so the answer is NO. Too bad.

The answer isn't no. The answer is "someday".

Another valid reason for the completion dates being able to be changed is because it affects the chains for goals. If I exercised yesterday but didn't check it off, it won't show a chain link for yesterday.

Dear Jake,

How can you say that editing the completed date, "is not something that most people need to do"?

As it's not allowed apart from the extreme of installing third-party, how would you know who needs to use it?

Also, you don't know how many people use other competing software because of this missing feature.

There will always only be a "few" vocal people asking for a this. Most people who need it will just junk the software and use something else and recommend that their friends use something else.

Can it really be such "a lot of work for us to implement", when third party software such at Task Angel etc have had this facility for years?

I'll bet he knows better than you do how many need this. How would you have a clue, other than you and a few other very vocal participants? Please, tell us where you got your "numbers" on how many want it and how many don't.

A new year is upon us. Any updates from Toodledo on this issue?

I to have just come looking for a solution. I guess this isn't a given yet.

Personally, I am using toodledo for multiple things. Obviously as a todo list, but also as a way to track all of the projects that I am working on through out the week to document what I have done. It is more of an annoyance than anything else that it shows I have completed tasks late if I put them in next day. (I know a bit nurotic - but maybe that comes with that territory of todo lists?)

Anyways - I propose that maybe exporting the task as a CSV, edit it in excel and import? I haven't tried it. A bit cumbersome but at least it get's it fixed for the time being.

And if you want you can go and fix several at once.

At least a thought.
