Dear Wunderlist community,

I am using the french version of the web app and I am struggling to find how to run a search within all completed tasks only, any ideas ?

Thanks a lot for your help,

Best regards,

Hello Ugo,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Unfortunately, it’s not supported to search completed tasks on the web app. However, there is a workaround:

- Enable the “Completed” smart list: https://6wunderkinder.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2228217-what-are-smart-due-dates-
- Open the list, and then press Ctrl or Command + F to search the page

Please let me know if you have other questions. Have a great day!

Regards,
Fangyuan

Hey Fangyuan, thank you for your response; it was very helpful and a good workaround for this situation. I have a related comment based on an issue I ran into while trying to follow Fangyuan's solution, and I figured I would share how I resolved the issue because I had to do some further google-searching to figure it out. When I use the "CTRL + F" command in Wunderlist, it defaults to using the built-in Wunderlist search bar which is not what we are trying to do. I'm not sure if this is a built-in feature / hotkey for all browsers or if it just for Google Chrome, which is what I am using.

The solution to get around using that built-in Wunderlist search bar and actually use the built-in Google Chrome search bar (which is what we are trying to do" is to first hold "ALT + F" (which opens up the tools/settings menu) and then press "F" again (which selects the "Find" setting, which is what we are trying to do). So the full sequence would be to press both "ALT + F" keys simultaneously, and then press "F" again to bring up that built-in Google Chrome search bar. Thanks again Fangyuan, and I hope this secondary response will be helpful to some others who encounter the same issue I ran into!

Anyone knows how to search "completed to-do" list for an item? I have way too many to look one at a time.

Hello Fangyuan,
thank your for the response however this did not work. I signed in into my account and use the link you provided above however the find function does not work...once I hit Ctrl+F the cursor goes to the search field and whatever I type it only looks into my inbox folder...
any other option?

Hello Rose,

Thank you for getting back to me.

It’s possible you do not enable the “completed” smart list, please turn it as “visible” in the setting: https://6wunderkinder.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2228217-what-are-smart-due-dates

Please let me know if you need more help!

Regards,
Fangyuan

Hello again, I did turn completed to-do to "visible" and still the same problem persists. when I click Ctrl+F the cursor goes automatically into the search field and whatever I search for, it does not search in the completed folder. I know bc I search for something I can see in the 'completed' folder just to check and it does not come up....

Hello Rose,

Thank you for your clarification.

In this case, please try Mike’s solution:

The solution to get around using that built-in Wunderlist search bar and actually use the built-in Google Chrome search bar (which is what we are trying to do" is to first hold “ALT + F” (which opens up the tools/settings menu) and then press “F” again (which selects the “Find” setting, which is what we are trying to do). So the full sequence would be to press both “ALT + F” keys simultaneously, and then press “F” again to bring up that built-in Google Chrome search bar.

If it doesn’t work, please try another browser, or tell me which browser you are using.

Fangyuan
