Hide completed tasks when selecting task from the list in Effort View
In Effort View, it is a bit annoying to change task of an effort that was already started: in the list box appear all the tasks, no matter if they are already completed (even if in Task View the option 'hide tasks if completed' is enabled).

I also feel the need to filter tasks that appear when I create a new (or edit) Effort. I have about 50 tasks created from January 2019 up to now (July 2019) and most of them are completed by now. Each time I want to edit or create a new effort I have to scroll the huge list of existing tasks.
Also, I frequently need to edit the Task associated with an effort because sometimes I don't know yet the task that that effort will be associated to, so I just use a generic task that I have to edit later.

Note: you can type the beginning of a task's name and it jumps to that task. It isn't as good as full search option or other hiding.
But I would think it pretty rare that you need to change which task an effort goes with. It isn't normal procedure, but is just fixing a user error.
at list add a check box in the edit/create new effort dialog box that will hide completed task.
Example: [ ] hide completed tasks
This way you don't have to scroll a loooooong list of completed tasks.
