Complete Tasks appearing as a project under a Project?


Omnifocus 2 latest build here. Not entirely sure how to phrase this. My View Settings are:

  • Don’t Use Project Heirarchy
  • Group Actions by Project
  • Sort Actions by Due
  • Filter by Status : Any Status
  • Filter by Availability: Remaining
  • Filter by Duration: Any Duration
  • Filter Contexts: Remaining

I am finding that under every project listed in the task list I see an unavailable item (circle greyed out) with the project name which I guess contains all the completed items. I can’t delete it without being warned that all of the items contained (I guess completed items)will be deleted. Anyhow, is this just standard as part of availability/remaining? Its a bit unexpected to me that completed items would appear under a “Remaining Items” filter.


I think you can control this with the “include projects and groups” in the organization tab of the preferences.

Looks like that did it! Awesome thanks!

For future reference, that unavailable item was actually the project itself. It would have become available once all of its child tasks were completed; at that point, you could check it off to mark the project itself completed.
