How can i find the repeating active task for completed task

I have written a Python script to read the ToodleDo backup XML file, and create some statistics on my productivity.

My question is how can I find the active repeating task which is associated with the completed tasks? For example, I have a task that repeats daily "Do workout on rowing machine". When I complete the task, a new task id is created with the date completed information.

Examining the XML file I can't see how this completed task can be linked to the active task which generated it. How does the "chain" method work with goals? How do you connect these tasks?

Thanks
Charles

This linking information is not contained in the backup file. You would need to match the tasks based on their title and sort them by completion date to reconstruct this data.

Jake,

Thank you for the clarification. I will build a look up table based on the task titles which have a non-empty <repeat> tag.
