        A to do list can be private-- eg, when Xmas gifts are on your list. Please add password protection across devices. Thx,

          • iCloud Sync

            If you add iCloud as a second sync option, iOS users would not have to wait for a sync upon launching ... All data would be synced in the background and just be there ... Like magic ;)

            • Archive a completed list

              It would be nice to archive lists so that they're not in the way once they're done, but you can view them if you need them.

                Hi there,
                Although not being actively worked on right now, this feature is very much on our radar :) We also regularly bring it up at our all-hands meetings.

                We can see how this would be super helpful for lists you need to re-use, but not so often (like a packing list). We also see how it’d be helpful if you’re using Wunderlist at work and need to keep a record of your projects.

                Cheers,
                Simon

              • Sync with Basecamp

                Your personal To-do's from Basecamp get synced with Wunderlist. A list in Basecamp is a list in Wunderlist. Only To-Do's assigned to you are synced.

                • Different background for each list

                  For the sake of visually differentiating between multiple lists, it would be great to customize the background for each individual list rather than a global setting. This way it makes it that much less likely of mixing up lists.

                  • Template list or duplicate lists (also known as Copy Lists)

                    I use wunderlist to help me manage projects and most of these share many of the same tasks. For me, the missing killer feature would be to be able to either set up a list template with a set of standard tasks that are included when I mak a new list, or to be able to easily duplicate an existing list to achieve the same thing.

                    I really hope you'll consider this for a future version.

                    Thanks!
                    David

                    • Smart dates

                      RTM has a great way to 'smart add' tasks, using a syntax system. Having a similar system that supports, priority, due date, list, and repeat would mean all task info could be added quickly just using the text box.

                          • Dependent tasks

                            Allow a task (eg mow-lawn) depend on another (eg buy-fuel). The dependent task is hidden until the first task is done. This will reduce clutter, and allow some structuring of tasks.

                            • Steven's Covey 2x2 Matrix / Priority Matrix

                              I would be very helpful if tasks could be added with a (optional) info about its place in Priority Matrix:

                              1 - Important and Urgent, red color, upper left part of the box
                              2 - Non Urgent but Important, organge/yellow color, upper right
                              3 - Urgent but not important,
                              4 - ect

                              If there also be a small graphical indicator (icon) with a box separated into 4 parts (with the appriopriate part being colored and rest gray), so i could judge at a glance what priority a task has, that would be perfect.

                              • Quick Add

                                I currently use Omnifocus and within that you are able to type a keyboard shortcut that brings up a small window. You can then add taks on the fly, without leaving the page you were looking at.

                                I'm not sure how this would work for Windows, but it would most certainly be convenient, quick and intuitive for all users. A hot feature by anyones standard.

                                  • Siri interaction with Wunderlist on iPhone

                                    Hi!

                                    Could you do something similar what guys behind the Remember The Milk app did with Siri and their app?

                                    This article says more and it even describes how to do it. -

                                    Thank you!
