How to edit completed date for a task?

Hi, how can I edit the completed date for a task? (For example, if I want to show that a task was completed in the past)

Hi Marian Fishman, welcome to the Community! 🤗

It's possible to change the due dates for the completed tasks, but not the completion dates (this info is recorded as a note in the task stream and can't be changed/removed):

Please let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help! 👍

Marian Fishman We ran into a similar problem on our team. The workaround we have is that we created a date custom field "Completed Date" at the project and task level. This also gives us completed dates on both of those levels for reports and dashboards. This way if you mark something complete, but it was completed several days ago, the custom field can have the actual completed date in it.

Also found it a bit annoying that the task completion date can not be edited! Will try Devree Czupinski's work around. Thanks.

This is especially annoying when importing an MS Project file--if a task is completed, it sets the date completed as the date of the import!  This should be editable, but I'll try the workaround.

Can this be changed? The "completed date" should be editable.

I have just started experimenting with Wrike and the inability to edit the Completion date is a real show stopper. Please allow this date to be edited!

I agree with others, this is a show stopper and we need to edit the Completed Date.  Work around to use a custom field is a good idea, but can you tell me how to set the date automatically when the status is changed to Completed.??

I agree with others this the completed field needs to have the ability to be editable.  There are many instances with a small team where projects are update at the end of the week or after tasks have been completed.  This really skews what a project looks like when showing progress to others not within the group. It could be set so that only certain contributor have the ability to edit the field.

Please tell developers this is a roadblock for our company to transition from Jira to Wrike.  We have tried uploading our existing projects and due to the completed date not being editable, all of our existing projects have lost the actual completed date and projects plans are scewed.  Unfortunate this wasn't discussed as an urgent matter when it was raised previously, as you could have resolved this.

Hi Olga Melnik, welcome to the forums 👋 You can edit the due date, but the completed date can't be edited.

When you complete a task, is the completion date recorded?  Or does it just mark the task as complete with no date?

Hi ROBERT BEESON, welcome to Wrike forums 🤗

It is recorded. For example, you can enable the "Completed date" field in the New Table view and it will be shown:

I hope this is helpful!

Hello,

 

Could we get the Completed Task date be editable? I feel like this would be beneficial.

Hi Javid Lalva, welcome to the Community. May I kindly ask you to elaborate a bit on your use case so we can share your feedback with our Product Team?

In case you need to edit the task's completed date to today's date, you can switch its status to any active and then back to 'completed'.

Looking forward to your reply!
