Completing + Archiving tasks

What is it?

Any.do allows you to easily track your progress while working on your action items by allowing you to complete and archive unneeded tasks. All archived items will be accessible from under the Completed Tasks folder in your account, from which they can be removed permanently.

Who has access?

  • Both Premium and Free users can take advantage of this feature!
  • Completing and removing tasks can be done on all supported platforms.
  • The Completed Tasks folder can be accessed via iOS and Android.

How does it work?

  • Completing tasks can be easily done by swiping an item or using the checkboxes available in both our Task and Calendar views.
  • An active task that is completed (swiped), can be left pending in your Task View and reactivated when needed.
  • Once a task has been completed, it can also be archived and cleared from your lists.
  • On the mobile apps, there is even a “Shake” feature, which allows you to archive all completed tasks by shaking your device.
  • All cleared tasks go to your Completed Tasks folder (available only on the mobile apps at this time), from which you may permanently delete them or retrieve them when needed.
