I "hide completed items" but the completed items keep REAPPEARING!

Hi, I click on "hide completed items" but the completed items keep REAPPEARING every so often and I have to go through my lists and click "hide completed items" again. 

Has anyone else seen this? Is there any way to stop this from happening?

I ALWAYS want to hide my completed items and I wish there was an easy way to do this with one click across all of my cards.

Now i've been doing it manually with every checklist and it's frustrating that the items suddenly reappear again and I have to click "hide completed items" all over again. 

Please help! 

Thank you,

@Christina Ninalga on any given device the setting should save, although any local cache clearing will remove that setting. It's not something that is stored on the server.

As a result it's also not something that can be manipulated via the API.

Do you have cards with lots and lots of checklists? If so, then one option may be to simply remove checklists once they're completed.

If you're just looking for the "audit trail", the action of having completed a checklist item (item name, username and date/time of completion) is still stored permanently in the card actions.

Using Butler you could do something like:

When a checklist is completed remove the checklist

In Trellinator the same instruction would be:

However with Trellinator you could get a bit more advanced and move completed checklists to a separate card that would record which checklists had been completed, and when they were completed, to save you having to analyse the audit trail on the card:

Here's a quick screencast of what that automation looks like (the action takes 10 - 12 seconds to complete):

Thx for letting me know it's stored on the cache,  I switch between different work computers so now it makes sense. Thanks for the tips Iain, appreciate it!
