  1. Show or view all tasks within a folder when clicking the folder icon

    When I click on a folder in the sidebar, all tasks within that folder should appear in the main window. The same way if I click All it shows all tasks, when I click a folder it should show all tasks within that folder, subgrouped by list name. The folder system is highly flawed as it is at the moment because of this. If All shows All, Folder should show All within Folder. Makes total sense don't you think?

    • Please add recurring intervals based on completion

      I would like to put in tasks such as "change baking soda" or "change air filter" I would like to mark these as needing done every month, every 3 months, etc, but I would like to also check "Recurs from completion" Thus, if I have something to do on Jan 12th every 3 months, and I mark it completed Jan 20th, it'll set the recurring to April 20th.

      I understand that this fails if you mark it completed after you actually did the work (i.e. forgot to check it off) but it also fails the other way if you didn't…

      • Make sub-tasks behave like main tasks

        New sub-task entries would post to top of list, checked sub-tasks would be hidden but still accessible if needed.

        • Possibility to SHARE JUST TASKS and not entire lists

          Possibility to share just one task and not an entire list.

          With this option, each user could choose is own list where to put the shared task.

          It might be usefull for each user to create is own wunderlist mind-organization in his count.

          Thanks for more

            • An "in-process" checkbox or indicator.

              Need a second check box or some type of indicator showing that a task has been started, but hasn't yet been completed. That would help my large list of graphic design tasks that I'm waiting on approvals for.

              • Repeat items on specific days

                The only thing I feel is missing is the ability to repeat an item on specific week days. Like if I want to work out Monday, Wednesday, Friday there's no option to set that up. The best I can do is every other day. Or make three separate items and repeat them weekly which just inflates my weekly list.

                • Make Sub-task available on the list view with expandable/collapsable function

                  I use wunderlist as a simple project management tool for me and my small team. Clicking on each items to see the subtask can bring on pain sometimes. Additional 'Expand / collaps all subtask items' will be a great addition and helping much

                  • Prioritize tasks that have been identified for today from highest priority to least priority, regardless of the lists theycomes from

                    Currently, if I have items that need to be done from multiple lists on the same day, the today list does not allow me to prioritize my tasks by intermingling the items from multiple lists. Instead, every time I want to move on to a new task, I have to spend time looking through each of the list sections asking myself what is the most important thing for me to get done right now.

                    It would be nice if I only had to prioritize my list once in the beginning of the day instead of spend an extra 15-20 minutes…

                    • Ability to arrange items order in Today list

                      This is very irritating, and confuses me. For example i have a list called "Errand" and when i set few items from Errand to today, they show up on Today list, but i can't reorder them in Today list. Every time i look in "Today" i must think and try to remember which task i wanted to do first, which second... It would be very great if we could arrange custom order for every item in Today. (i don't mean declassifying them to mix items from one list to another in Today, i mean to give custom order to items…

                      • Folders task count

                        Loving the new folders, thank you! As an addition to this, I'd really like to see a sum total of todo items from all categories next to the folder name.

                        This is because I like to keep folders collapsed generally for neatness and good use of space, but you can't then differentiate which folders have lists with tasks against them unless you expand them all individually.

                        Simply adding the sum/count of tasks within all categories in each folder will solve this nicely.

                        Thank you

                        • Permanently sort

                          When a list is sorted and a task date changes or a new task is added, I have to manually sort the list again. It would be nice if the new item would automatically get sorted as it is added.

                                • Be able to categorize a list with a color

                                  When the list is assigned a certain color, ever item in that list would also be assigned that color. That way, in the "all items" view, the user could easily see which list the item belonged to. Inaddition to sorting all items by list in the "all items" view, be able to sort items by category (color), and view all items with no sorting by list at all. Also, be able to assign not only a list to another user, but any items with a certain color.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Create a spot in the task pane detail where can add an est of time it should take to complete the task

                                        We would like to be able to maintain an estimate of the time it will take to complete each task on a list. Sort of an accountability of how much time we can allow on each task and whether or not we stayed withing the estimate of total time. We would then like to be able to see a running total of how much time has been estimated for all the tasks combined so we can use to plan out someones schedule and or hire more help.

                                        • Integrate with Google task and google calendar

                                          I use google tasks on daily basis. However it n lacks more complex features eg files, pics as attachments, subtasks, etc. If Wunderlist cud import google tasks then it enables users to add extra features as above only where necessary, making to do list very efficient. Please add import of Google tasks and google calendar and get 5 stars from me.
