Tip: Searching Completed Tasks

To keep things clean, I always keep the "Recently Completed Tasks" filter off. For those times when I need to answer a "When did I do this?" type question I bookmarked the following link:

http://www.toodledo.com/tools/csv.php?view=1;completed=1

This will generate a webpage of your completed tasks in text/csv, including task notes. It's not pretty, but it's really fast. I then use the browser's built in "Find on Page" feature (Ctrl-F) to search. The completion date is easy to identify because it is the last item in each line.

Of course, this is only good for Pro accounts, since the free ones only keep a week of history.

I have a Saved Search for completed tasks. The CTRL-F feature works (although I rarely use it), and when I find the task, I can actually do something with it, e.g. copy, edit, clone, delete, or "un-complete". Viewing the completion date requires sorting by "Date Completed", which takes a few extra seconds, but it's worth it to have direct access to the tasks.

Yeah, I used to do that too. For me, 95% of the time all I need is a completed date, or maybe a piece of info from a note. In those cases, this method frankly blows the doors off a saved search. :)

In my Saved Searches, I have "Done Today" and "Done This Week", because I use these frequently. I seldom search all of my Done tasks, so when I do, I just create an ad hoc filter.

You must have some very flimsy doors ... ;)

Anyway, it's a nice tip. I prefer viewing the actual tasks.
