Hide Completed Items for Trello

Trello shows completed checklist items by default. I often have multiple checklists on a card, and I like to see what’s left to do without having to scroll. This extension sets completed checklist items to be hidden on opening a card.

Completed items are still there, however — you can see them by clicking “Show completed items” in the checklist header. They’ll be hidden again when you open the card later.

This extension is only tested in the most recent versions of Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

For security reasons, I requested a transfer of this extension from my personal account (beingmrkenny@gmail.com) to a dedicated developer account (beingmrkenny.extensions@gmail.com) on 8 August 2017 (Chrome only). At time of writing, the transfer had not yet taken place.

I cannot guarantee that this extension will not interfere with other extensions or add-ons to Trello. If you notice an issue, please get in touch.

Security and Privacy

An extension I use was hacked recently: code was added to insert ads into webpages. Not so serious, but it could have been at lot worse.

Extensions can be hacked if an attacker gains access to the developer account which publishes them. The risk of that happening is very small. If you’re on Chrome, my Google account is secured with 2-factor auth (meaning even with my password my account can’t be accessed). If you’re on Opera and Firefox, they have human code review processes that check for this kind of thing, so even if someone got into my account, they wouldn’t be able to publish malicious code.

How to check you’re safe

By checking the version number, you can be sure that you have the authorised version of Hide Completed Items for Trello. It is impossible to publish a new version without increasing this number. You’ll find it listed in your browser next to the extension name, and the latest authorised version number will always be available on this page below.

The number in your browser should be the same as or less than the one listed on this page. If it is the same, you have the latest version. If it is less, it means a new version has been published but you have not received it yet. If the version in your browser is greater than the one listed below, uninstall the extension, report it to Google, Opera or Mozilla, and please get in touch with me also. Uninstalling also deletes any saved data for that extension which may have been compromised.

In the interests of transparency, I have detailed what permissions this extension requires, and why, along with any data that is sent on your behalf. Any changes in the permissions that this extension requires will be noted on this page.
