Wunderlist Feature Requests

Hey there!

We’re always looking for ways to make your Wunderlist experience better and here you can tell us how. All you need to do is enter your suggestion.
If it’s already been submitted, give it your vote! If it hasn’t yet been submitted, you can post it as a new idea.

What would make Wunderlist better?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. I'd love to be able to mark a to-do item as "in progress" or "waiting on someone else."

    Right now I just move the to-do item to the next day if I begin my portion of a to-do and am waiting on someone else to complete their part of the task. I'd prefer some way of indicating that the task is in progress.

    • Ability to add due dates for subtasks

      The way I see it, if you could set a due date for specific subtasks, it would make tracking each task on a list a lot cleaner. It would be really nice, if the due date for the project as a whole automatically populated with the nearest subtask due-date so that the project autoupdated over time.

      • Windows 7 Wunderlist 3 Petition

        I know for a fact that I am not the only person feeling completely let down by Wunderlist's decision to not support Windows 7 moving forward due to "amount of requests for Windows 8 and Phone 8 were just to large to ignore."

        A large number of requests for Windows 8 and Phone 8 versions doesn't mean drop Windows 7, it means the MINORITY of your user base that uses Windows 8 would like a better experience.

        So to give the minority a better experience you have alienated the majority of your Windows users.

        No, we don't want to continue…

          • Recurring tasks based on completion time (as in Things)

            One killer feature of Things is to have a task recur a certain number of days/weeks/months after completion of the current task.

            A typical scenario for me is "Get a haircut" (recur every 6 weeks after completion), since I might not be able to make an appointment until 10 weeks have passed. Of course, I don't want to get reminded to get a haircut two weeks after having one.

            The option of setting the next due date at the time of completion gets rid of a lot of noise. This should be a low hanging fruit for you guys, with…

              • Create a list for tomorrow

                I like to plan my day the evening before. I would like a smart list that defaults the due date to tomorrow.

                  • Recurrent tasks: more choices: last Thursday of month, each Monday,...

                    Instead of only selecting "every X T" (each 1,2,3 days, weeks, months,...) it would be good if we can select: each Monday, Wednesday,... or each last Sunday of month, first workday each month,..

                        • Set reminders for others - (consolidated, vote here)

                          This feature has been suggested many times in different ways as I look across the boards. I'm trying to consolidate the votes onto one suggestion so it will get addressed. If you voted for one of the many other similar suggestions, please move your vote here (click on your vote on that item, click remove vote, click on vote on this item)

                          Some people have suggested the ability to do this for teams in a business so that when they assign a task to someone they can set a reminder for it.

                          Some have said they use Wunderlist for managing…

                          • Task descriptions in email notifications / reminders

                            Email notifications / reminders are a great feature.

                            However, at this moment the only information sent is the name of the task.

                            It would be great to see in the pushed email description of the task.

                            It works like that in Google Calendar - all email notifications include the complete description of the task (or, to be precise, an event).

                              • It would be really good if in the 'Notes' section you were able to draw with your finger/stylus as well as just typing on the keyboard.

                                I know lots of people who use this app to keep track of physical lending items. If you could 'draw' in the Notes section as well as typing this would means that if the 'item' has been lent to someone they can do an e-signature to confirm they have borrowed it.

                                  I would like to have a history feature which will work like a diary and record what I have completed everyday.
                                  So it can work like a little diary. Let's say I can see what I have done last Wednesday.

                                  • Assign a start date to a To-Do

                                    I would love to be able to assign a date on which I should start the to-do. This would help me plan and be able to tasks done ahead of time before they are critically due. Say I have a task due Tuesday. I would like to say that I want to start on it on Sunday so that I can finish it early, but still know how long i have to work on it before the final deadline.

                                    • Include option to open Wunderlist App with 'Today' rather than Inbox

                                      As a personal user, i've no need for the inbox feature, as no one is sending me tasks to do. Instead it'd be nice to open the app immediately on the 'today' page instead. It seems a small point, but would improve the 'flow' of app use for myself. Others might like to see their week or a certain list first, so this could be a useful feature.

                                      • This is the NUMBER 1 Thing that would make Wunderlist Better!!!

                                        If you could add the amount of time that you think a task would take. That way in the list of things to do today or this week you could quickly tell if you had overbooked your time with way too many things to do.

                                          I would definitely use Wunderlist more if I could send bits for tasks completed!
