Permanently Deleting Tasks 

Currently, no option exists to permanently delete tasks. However, if for any reason you wish to remove a task entirely from your account: 

  1. Create a new project and move the task there.
  2. Archive and delete the project. Once the project is deleted, the task will disappear too.
