Undesired instant clean-up Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have the option for immediate clean-up of completed items turned off in preferences; I like those things to stick around until I switch views or manually hit clean-up. However, under the following circumstances, items will disappear immediately anyway:

In context mode, with an 'active' filter on contexts, when completing the last available action in a particular context, that item will be immediately cleaned up and its context disappears from the sidebar list. It is much less obvious what is going on if the context in question happened to be nested inside a collapsed context (closed disclosure triangle), such that there is no visible indication of a change in the sidebar.

I'm slightly less bothered by this now that I at least know why some items behave differently, but I found it confusing. My ideal behavior would be that both the context and the item stick around until the next clean-up or view change.
There's at least one other way where you can get an undesired instant clean-up. Completing a project (whether manually or by the auto-complete when completing the last included action) will also trigger a clean-up, though it won't clean up the completed project if you did it in a separate window!

catrijin, sorry for the confusion this causes; it's indeed a bug. I'll make sure to attach you to the item open on this in the dev database so the rest of the team knows you'd like to see that fixed.

Bill, the email you sent in yesterday got attached to the database item we have open on that issue, as well. Thanks.
