Project and task status (Active, Paused, Completed and Dropped) explained

You may change a project's or task's status by using the tabbed bar in the item's detail window:



Active items are all items that are not paused, completed, dropped or delegated, and are not in the Inbox or the Someday list. Making an Inbox or Someday item active will move it to the Next list.

Pause an item when it's currently not possible to work on it. All paused items will show up in the Paused list. You can tell that an item is paused by the pause icon inside the checkbox and by the name being grey. The item's stats will still show up in charts.

All completed items will show up in the Completed list. You can tell that an item is completed by the checkmark inside the checkbox and by the name being grey. Completed tasks will disappear from the Next, Due and Scheduled lists after 24 hours. From all the other lists, completed tasks will disappear immediately.

Dropped items are all the tasks and projects that you have decided you never ever want to start on. All dropped items will show in the Dropped list. You can tell that an item is dropped by the cross icon inside the checkbox and by the name being grey. The item's stats will still show up in charts.
