Rule action to delete a task

Hi -
The project rules are terrific - really save a lot of time.
I have created a Project “task list,” for one off tasks
I have no need to retain those tasks when completed
Would it be possible to add a “Delete Task” Action so those tasks would be automatically deleted when marked complete ?
Is there a work-around for this.
This one rule would be a significant time saver.


Hi @DMS and thanks for sharing your feedback :slight_smile:

That is not possible at the moment I’m afraid, you could possibly look into using Rules to move these tasks to another project you would entirely dedicate to “Archived/Deleted tasks” but that’s only a workaround and wouldn’t actually delete these tasks.

You might also be interested in upvoting this other thread Removal Action When Using Rules which is in some way similar to your request and on my end, I’ll make sure to keep you posted as soon as I have an update!

Very good suggestion, I was myself hoping to set up an “archive column” that would delete items upon their being dropped there (in additiong to being sent to the archive project I’ve set up)
