How to view timeline without completed tasks still showing in a "faded" state?



Hello Community,

New here so officially “hi”, and a first post.
Perhaps I’m missing something but I can’t seem to figure out how to use timeline to view a project and only see incomplete tasks ? - I can always see the completed (faded) + incomplete tasks, making the timeline unnecessarily cluttered. Tried changing task views in list/calendar view to no avail.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance,



Welcome to the community, @Meakin.

The ability to filter tasks on Timeline is not yet available, and I’m going to move this thread to the “Product Feedback” category so we can capture this request and feedback for the Product team to consider developing in the future.




Any news on this topic? Only view Incomplete tasks on the Timeline.

Thank you


I would like to see the ability to be able to at least toggle the display of complete tasks on the timeline. I have a use case in the way that I’m using Asana it would be beneficial to only see the the incomplete ones.

This ability, and the ability to include sub-tasks, as discussed here would greatly benefit my adoption of Asana.



With the new useful timeline (sort by due date), being able to hide completed tasks is even more important. This needs implementing asap please!


Hi there,
hopefully the filter to hide completed task would be released soon, as more and more we’re using the timelines, there is plenty of tasks that we would prefer not to see, in order to focus on what’s to do next :slight_smile:


To avoid cluttering up of timelines with completed tasks, my not-so-enjoyable workaround is to periodically move completed tasks from, say, the “Panda” project to “Panda Parking Lot”. This can be done as a bulk operation in List view.

Asana, please do listen up: FILTERING IS FUNDAMENTAL. And as you recognize in other screens, the filter of Incomplete vs. Completed is one of the most needed. Timeline is no exception to that general rule.


As a compromise, you could just make the list view filters apply to the timeline, this way you dont need to change the ui. So you only need one developer to do this :slight_smile:
