Completed smart list
a sort of smart list that shows all completed items from all lists in one view
We’ve now introduced the Completed smart list across all platforms in version 2.17.
In addition, you’ll now see all your completed tasks grouped at the bottom of each list for easy access.
Where is the full completed list at?
Being able to sort the completed tasks (either alphabetically or by date/time completed) is critical, as is being able to unselect completed tasks, but also being able to then delete all or part of the completed tasks list (by date for example) within that list group. I know you can delete all completed tasks for the whole app but to do it selectively within a list would be great.
Thank you Polly. However, can the grouping of completed items be an optional setting? My personal preference is to see my completed To Do items remain in the same position next to other incomplete items, instead of disappearing from my immediate view.

Can we have the Completed smartlist to be sortable by their Completion Date? This would be more useful as we can check all the tasks we completed on a specific date across all the lists.
We use this as a grocery list, the completed feature is great but can it be possible to also sort the completed list alphabetically, so we can unchecked any items previously marked as complete.
Dear Microsoft, since you have now deleted the ability to have a sortable list of tasks completed, you have destroyed my grocery list that I have developed over the past few years. With several hundred items on the completed (purchased) list, I can't quickly find what I need. With six different sotores, this was very important. Please make the completed list alphabetically sortable!!!
I like the Completed smart list very much.I wonder why people are asking for a sort: If the task is completed it should be irrelevant going forward. If you need to go back to completed tasks it probably means they weren't actually completed.
Completed list must be sortable. Bring that ability back please!!!
Agree with many others. Completed lists should also be sortable alphabetically like it was when I first transferred to this App. Not having this ability makes it too time consuming. Please, please fix.
There should be an option to order the completed tasks in alphabetic order. like it is possible for the "open tasks"
Would like a switch to either have the task list show the completed tasks in alphabetic order or last checked
PLEASE bring back the ability to alpha-SORT the COMPLETED list. This App is now too time consuming to use properly and I have gone back to making lists by hand, until such time this gets fixed or I find a new app for shopping and task management. Please fix! Thx.
Yuck. I hate the separation. I was so excited when I migrated from Wunderlist when I saw all tasks in one list...not 2 (completed and open). And it was awesome that the Alphabetical sort INCLUDED Completed items. Now, with the separation, the sort doesn’t work for completed tasks. It’s one thing to OFFER the option for separation. But to take away options, not cool. Boo!
Completed tasks should als be sortable alphabetically
How do I sort the completed list alphabetically? That's handy for finding things and searching for duplicate items. It was working for a short while.
Also how do I sync the desktop app to my phone app? When I add things to the desktop view I don't see them on my phone or tablet. When I add an item on my tablet it automatically show up on my phone for when I go shopping.

Well, you've just destroyed my grocery lists by not having Completed Items listed alphabetically. Typical Microsoft - one step forward, two steps back. Not impressed at all.
Please return the ability to sort completed items!!!
Too difficult to use if not...
Please bring back the ability to sort Completed items.
As most allready say, YOU DO RENDER OUR LISTS USELESS, if we can not sort our completed items anymore!
LET US DECIDE BY OURSELF, if we wanna have completed tasks in an extra group or better not to!
We have permanent lists with regularly recurring items, sorted in a specific way to be done again and again in a specific order.
Grouping and/or None-Sorting DESTROYS those lists!
For your future programming life, PLEASE ALWAYS introduce new features with a setting to check/uncheck those new features!
Thx from Germany
+1 to be able to sort completed items
