[Feature Request] Can we hide completed tasks on Paper?

Level 6

Is there a way to hide things that you've checked off in your dropbox paper files? Our task lists are getting long and messy, and I don't want to delete notes but if I could hide items that are checed off — I could efficiently see what is still left on the to-do list.

If you go to your tasks page (top right of window, checkmark icon) you will see only outstanding tasks by default, and you can filter for due dates, assigned persons, completed tasks, tasks by document etc)

Thanks, yeah, I've been using that — but I don't believe we can edit within it. When you're the project manager of the page, being able to turn off all the checked off items to review and edit existing tasks would be great.

Oh yes I get you now.

Would be a good feature, you can make a feature request if you like... I also think it makes sense, like a todo app, that you can 'log'/'hide' done tasks, otherwise a doc can turn into a chaos of strikethroughs...

Exactly, between strikethroughs and connected comments, it gets a bit messy. But I don't want to delete them because the comments often have info I need or I don't remember why we made a descision, so I go back to them. 

I'll request the feature, thank you for suggesting that!

I support this. I would like to toggle on off completed tasks within a document, not only in the tasks view.
