I have several tasks in my Org file, one of which has items starting with a checkbox (but only those). They all have a statistic cookie at their end ([n/m]).
I'm looking for a way to automatically update the parent task from
DONE once all of the checkboxes are marked as done as well.
The documentation says:
If you would like a TODO entry to automatically change to DONE when all children are done, you can use the following setup [...]
Another possibility is the use of checkboxes to identify (a hierarchy of) a large number of subtasks (see Checkboxes).
The way I understand that last part is that if children items are checkboxes, parent state should already be automatically updated (which is not the case).
What am I missing?
org-after-todo-statistics-hook's documentation (org.el):
Hook that is called after a TODO statistics cookie has been updated. Each function is called with two arguments: the number of not-done entries and the number of done entries.
Which means that the proposed code from orgmode.org:
(defun org-summary-todo (n-done n-not-done) "Switch entry to DONE when all subentries are done, to TODO otherwise." (let (org-log-done org-log-states) ; turn off logging (org-todo (if (= n-not-done 0) "DONE" "TODO")))) (add-hook 'org-after-todo-statistics-hook 'org-summary-todo)
won't count checkbox items.
