Re: How user can see completed tasks in the task list?
I enter the planned webinars in the to-do list (each entry on the
preparation page for the corresponding webinar) and after its completion
I would like to see their list with dates and topics.
A to-do list is best for this.

Do you plan to ported it to the latest Zim version?

There could be a couple of ways to do it.
1. Simple, but not so elegant, is to use the Task List but never check
Instead, use a tag like @completed or @finished (but not both), so you
can filter tasks on those tags. This way, you could have @cancelled
also or @delayed or whatever you want.
Tags are very useful with tasks as you can mix them. For example, I
often put an estimated time in the form of a tag (@d2 for 2 days, @h3
for 3 hours, etc.), so I can again filter based on time.
I’m doing something like this now.
2. Use Task List and check the boxes as usual.
Since Zim files are simple text files, you can seach them using tools
For Windows, I know a tool called Copernic that can do this job, as it
indexes files and their content.
On Linux, DocFetcher does the same.
On Linux, for the current directory, the command "cat *txt | grep
"\[\*\]" will find all completed tasks, as "
cat *txt | grep "\[x\]" will give all cancelled ones.
This is in my opinion too complicated - you have to use another program.
And I need to see exactly the list of completed cases - with their
contents and dates in order to sort and compare among themselves.
