I do, in essence, the same approach as Marc. In my projects, there lives a perpetual "Go to the grocery store" project with dummy tasks setup like Dairy or Household Goods with everything that I buy as completed tasks under each dummy task. I open a perspective that shows all the completed tasks and uncheck the ones to show up on my iPhone during the shopping trip. After a sync to my iPhone. I have in the Errands=>Grocery Store context all my needed items and it is time to go to the store. Check them off as I travel the store. After coming home, another sync and I am back ready for the next time...
Now the rub, I liked the idea of Archive Old items. But it moved all my completed bread milk and cheese and like tasks to the archive. I then had to cut and paste them back into the active database under my dummy tasks. What a pain...
hehe... just saw the post above and I guess others have found the same issue!
Could we have archive (like backup software) where you could select projects to exclude from the move? Or does anyone have a better idea?
