Can you automatically hide a task once it has been completed on Lists

Hi all, have set up an action tracker on MS Lists, we want to keep the historic tasks on there so we can refer back if need be but do not want them showing once they have been marked complete. Is there a workaround or conditional formatting so that once we have marked an action as complete it then hides from the page? TIA

The easiest way would be to create a new view in Lists, rather than use power automate for this.

In the topright click All Items and select Create new view, name it something like 'Active actions'.

After creation, edit the view, make sure to mark it as the default view and under filter, only show items where Completed is equal to No.


The All items view will still be available to view all items including completed.

Great thanks - would this view show for other people accessing the lists or would they need to change their view too?

Yes, marking the view as default will make sure everyone viewing the list will see this new view when they open the list. (as long as they don't use a deep link to another view to access the list)
