I suggest you ...

Include a checkbox in the task list to mark items completed with a single click

Right now (unless I'm missing something) I have to click to select a task, then move up and click the "completed" button in the toolbar.

    Before the task could have a play, pause and completed button. You could even click play, start counting effort time.

    I recommend add an "Action" column that can have several tiny action buttons from which the user can easily interact with the task state.

    Yeah I agree that a checkbox for completion would be desirable. I am using korganizer and the checkbox would help entice me to task coach.

    Really? The big green checkbox in the app icon (and on the button you click to mark an item completed) doesn't suggest that checking a box next to a task would mark it completed? ;-)

    The contextual menu is handy, but still requires a lot more mousework than a single click, especially when I'm checking off several tasks in a row. Right now there's no easy way to go down the list and check off several items at a time, especially if they're recurring (so they disappear when they're checked off, removing the selection hilight from the list and requiring another click to select).

    Again... just my opinion. :-)

    I agree that this would be nice. However, since the categories already use checkboxes for filtering I´m a bit afraid it may be confusing that checkboxes have very different effects for tasks and categories.

    BTW, you can also right-click and select mark completed from the context menu.

    Yes, bart2pub, but that still requires clicking on the event, then leaving the mouse to go to the keyboard for the Cmd-Return. I'd like to minimize the number of steps necessary to mark a task completed, and that whole process is pretty clunky still, IMO.
