Recurring Tasks that have been completed are building up, it's getting cluttered

Recurring tasks get completed daily, but they stick around permanently. There’s an option to only show “incomplete tasks”, but it resets when you leave the page and return. How can I set up a daily task that gets completed, and then gets taken off the list without needing to manually delete it every day?

Hi @Kellan_Paniccia, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:t2:

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback :clap:t2:

Currently, recurring tasks will stay in the “Completed tasks” section once completed, they will not be deleted automatically. Hopefully this is something we can implement for recurring tasks in the future! :slight_smile:


Thanks for the prompt follow-up, Rebecca! I hope they can implement that soon, it looks like I’m not alone in this request :slight_smile:


I just wanted to follow up with a suggestion here, @Kellan_Paniccia!

You can save your project layout to show incomplete tasks only, hiding the completed recurring tasks! You can follow the steps in the article below to save the layout:

  1. Click the three dot icon in your project toolbar
  2. Select Save layout as default

I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

This is fantastic, thank you Rebecca! This will make my team’s life much easier :slight_smile:
