Search through completed task.
After task are completed they are still useful to me. However, finding what I need is a problem because the search feature only searches active task. I'm searching for specific unique strings such as PO numbers like "2BX1772301"
I'm using wunderlist as a personal production tracking system and it's working great.
I am in the same boat. I have used this app for about 5 years while having an iPhone. I have just moved to android and this is a deal breaker for me. Can anyone recommend another app that I could move to?

Someone on the dev team... please include completed tasks in the search !!! Please!!

They could just stop hijacking Ctrl+F. That way I could "show" my completed tasks and then use my browser's super useful search functionality to search the page. Yes, this wouldn't be search across multiple lists, but it would be something. Plus, hijacking Ctrl+F is a major no-no in dev land.

interestingly, it works "properly" under iPhone IOS. Maybe, switch to iPhone :)

any update on this one?
to be honest, the fact that completed items is not searchable forces me to look for another solution such as Google Keep.
but before I migrate my work I really want to make sure you answer this request and let us know if this is going to be supported or not.
Me too - much easier to recycle 'completed' items when needed again, this would be a great feature for the next release.... soon if possible????
Can't say enough about how much this feature is needed!

I have the same issue. I need to be able to find information in a completed task on PC and/or Android device. You can search through open items and even if you show completed tasks it won't search through them. This should be pretty basic.
when is this going to be developed? This is the sole reason I'm looking for a replacement to Wunderlist.

This feature works on my iOS device perfectly. But on my friends Android version it doesn't work.
Please make it possible for Android to search through completed tasks.
We're using it as a shopping list and don't want the list to grow in size, because there are multiple entries of one item...

Agreed, wife and I use this for shopping lists (among many others) and have our recurring items, but have to scroll through to find and reactivate vs search or quick search. Search feature should be available inside a list also, not just at the global level
Adam Bright commented
This would be an incredibly valuable function add
Please please add this feature. It is a must have.
I concur, really need this function please wunderlist
Anthony James Jurado commented
Not sure why this feature was removed. :-( It USED to work and I used it regularly in my shopping lists to re-add items I regularly shop for. Extremely useful. PLEASE bring back....
Alberto Fortini commented
I hope to see this feature very soon!
i work everyday with wunderlist and this kind of search will be indinspensable for me!!
it's very frustrating to search in completed tasks with only help of the scrolling of the mouse!
Paul Raymer commented
I concur - the ability to search through completed tasks would be a GREAT addition! They are still valuable to me also.

As this extensive list of frustrated users indicate (https://support.wunderlist.com/customer/en/portal/questions/16364945-search-completed-tasks?new=16364945), search in completed tasks is sorely needed.
I would like to see the current and active tasks listed first, but then either have a link to click for completed, or just show the completed underneath, but they should show up.
