Welcome to the forum! Glad to hear you’re using the submit tool and liking it.
You can leverage autocomplete filtering by statuses. For instance, you can limit the list of results to only tasks that are not marked final (or any other status like “complete” if you have that in your Task status list).
You’ll need to have admin controls to do this. In the Shotgun UI, navigate to Site Preferences, then Filtering. You’ll see Autocomplete Omit Statuses here, and you can list all the things you don’t want to show up in autocomplete list fields. Just list the entity name first (in this case
Task, then the status Short Code, like
Task:fin in this example). Make sure to save your site preferences once you make the update.
Note that this is a global control, so it will affect all projects across Shotgun. So any values you choose to filter from autocomplete results will not be returned in the RV Submit Tool and Shotgun. You may also need to restart RV for it to take effect there.
Here’s a bit more information in our Best Practices doc:
