Add task - search for existing completed task
Often you have a task that you have to repeat (buy "milk, buy break, pick up kids, etc.). It would be great if "add task in list feature could search for completed task with same text (LIKE) and offer to reactivate them - something like auto complete feature (and if we don’t select from the list, new task is added). This way we wouldn't have a lot of items in completed list and it would speed up the entering of new task.
This same function is repeated in other suggestions and the vote is therefore split up. Please include the search in both active and completed tasks.
Specifically for iOS - reactivating a completed task, versus accumulating hundreds of duplicated tasks, takes many steps: go out to Home screen, use Search, activate completed task, cancel search, back into List, think about next item to find and add, repeat.
- Either adding Search field at top of a List, like on Mac app, or enable auto-complete with completed tasks in Add A To-Do field, would help.
