Sometimes you need to “archive” a task that you haven’t completed without deleting it altogether (maybe you want to keep a record of the task or come back to it later).
In situations like this, I deal with the task by:
- Adding [DNC] (which stands for “Did not complete”) to the start of the task name.
- Post and pin a comment explaining why it was not completed.
- Mark as complete.
This way, you can keep the task for future reference but clearly identify it as a task that was not completed.
