Wow, I’m impressed by your help, you are very kind!
I am also impressed by your researching skills, I gave a long go at trying
to find some code online unsuccessfully.

Yes, I agree that the agenda is a nice way to go to visualize my past
events (with v A).
My idea of not relying on the agenda interface is just to be free and have
an archive org file with all my entries, easier to scroll from any device
without the need of Emacs.

As for the function to archive the individual repeated tasks into their
corresponding tree:
I’m not an emacs lisp programmer (or any kind of!). As I see, this function
works only “at point”.
The way I work is I mark tasks as DONE during a couple weeks, and then I
call this function that tracks all my org file and archives all DONE /
CANCELLED items.
This is great because I don’t have to do it one by one.

(defun my/org-archive-done-tasks-file ()
  (interactive)
  (org-map-entries
   (lambda ()
     (org-archive-subtree)
     (setq org-map-continue-from (outline-previous-heading)))
     "TODO=\"DONE\"|TODO=\"CANCELED\\"" 'file))

Do you think there is a way to combine these two functions so that when I
call the fucntion, I get to archive all DONE/CANCELLED & repeated
DONE/CANCELLED tasks (the latter without deleting the logged task or its
respective heading)?

Best,
G.
