Far be it from me to intrude on another person's bafflement, but in general, folks here are in favor of adding functionality to Evernote. But the reality is that Evernote has never pretended to be a dedicated to-do application, and they've chosen to focus their development efforts in other areas. As it is today, a user certainly has the ability to complete what they start (by checking the box). They just don't have the particular feature that the item gets physically cleared from the note. You're welcome to believe that this is a critical feature, and inside the scope of what Evernote should be doing, and it's all fair game for feature suggestions, but I wouldn't be surprised if this never got implemented by Evernote, for reasons stated before (not that it's my decision anyways). How about we keep it at just that, a feature request, without all the drama from the "evangelists" on why a todo list is not Evernote's domain? You are dealing with this problem because you introduced limited functionality around todo lists. Your users are responding to the limitation and asking whether evernote plans on extending functionality in this area or not. I was really hoping to come to your community and find some sort of ideation presence for users to submit or vote on this feature. That way "Evangelists" wouldn't have to subjectively respond to posts, instead objectively stating this is the "x" most requested feature by our users and either in the queue or not for development. A bit disappointed in the quality of the responses here.
