Wunderlist Feature Requests

Thanks for taking the time to add your suggestions and upvotes here over the years! Your feedback was certainly instrumental in getting Wunderlist where it is today, so again thank you. Without you and your feedback we wouldn’t have been able to launch the next evolution of Wunderlist, Microsoft To-Do.

We’d love for our Wunderlist users to give To-Do a try and let us know what you think on To-Do’s UserVoice. As the Wunderlist team has shifted focus to our new app To-Do, we will no longer be updating Wunderlist, which will eventually be retired.

We want to be sure that To-Do is the best option first, though. So please let us know which features you’d like to see here: https://todo.uservoice.com/

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.

  • 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".

  1. Ribbon color

    It would be great if you could use your branded
    Ribbon and be able to color code it to mark
    Priority. Red would be the most urgent
    As it is today and continue the branding you have now. Add additional colors so that users can denote less priority within their lists. I.e. Green or yellow

    • Sort completed tasks by completion date

      Instead of sorting completed tasks in order of its list, it would be very helpfull to see completed task in order of Date and time of completion as timeline with completion date/time stamp.
      This makes Winderlist saving my time on weekly report preparation.

      • Repeating tasks based on due date or completion date

        I'd like the ability to choose whether the next date for a repeating task is based on the due date I set for the task or the date I mark the task complete. Here are a couple use cases:

        I clean my toilets each week, but let's say I forget for two weeks. The way repeating tasks are set now, I'm going to get a past due new due date for a week after the original due date. In this case, I can't make up the toilet cleanings I missed, so I'd like the new due date to be 1…

        • Ability to add price and calculate sum

          Ability to add price to each item and have the list sum them up.
          This would be useful for shopping list and budget lists and more.

          • 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 calendar view and, besides that, create a custom rule for repeating tasks.

                The first idea (create a calendar view) would make your app more dynamic because the users would be able to save more time getting an overview of a calendar instead of picking a day with your current way (scrolling up or down).
                The second idea (create a custom rule for repeating tasks) could promove a better organization for the tasks.

                That's it! I hope you guys read this and think about it.

                Thank you very much for making my whole life easier with this incredible app!

                • Ability to alpha sort the "Completed" list of items

                  I would love for this feature to be added to the "Completed" section of each list. I believe my family would utilize our shopping lists on here more with this feature added. Thank you for reading!

                  • Starred tasks assigned to me or unassigned

                    Am I the only one that would like to see a Starred Smart List that only shows Starred items assigned to ME?

                    When I'm reviewing and organizing tasks it's fine to see Starred items no matter who they belong to, but when I'm running my day to get work done, it's just a distraction to have to visually wade through stuff just to see MY tasks. I want to filter that Starred list down to just things assigned to me. Maybe Unassigned items should be included as well, since I might be the one that should jump on something that…

                    • Have the ability to view subtasks when looking at a to do list, so you can see all the items in the to do list as well as the subtasksdo.

                      Be able to see all to does and have a drop down for subtasks instead of having to click on each to do to do subtasks.

                      • Feature to delete all completed tasks

                        Currently you have to click each task in order to delete it. I'd like an option to "delete all completed tasks". I end up with hundreds of completed tasks on my grocery list and it takes forever to delete them. I know they can be hidden, but I want them gone.

                        • Deleting multiple items in Completed Items List

                          Can a feature be introduced to allow one to select multiple items on the "Completed Items List" in order to delete them all at once instead of having to select each item one by one to delete them which is the case at the moment? Selecting and deleting them one by one is very inefficient and unproductive.

                              • Formatted OneNote link when copied into notes

                                When copying a OneNote link (page, section, etc.) and pasting into Wunderlist, it results in a huge link that takes me to the browser version of OneNote when clicked. I'd love to see it work like it does when pasting a OneNote link into Outlook or other Office products. It is shows the page title that, when clicked, opens the OneNote client. And a (web view) link next to it that opens in the browser.

                                  • Support app link functionality for Android

                                    When I click a Wunderlist link in Android, make it an option to open the content by default in the Wunderlist app (e.g. via a chat app while coordinating with colleagues) and not Chrome. This is currently not an option and mobile Chrome is not supported by Wunderlist. Which makes Wunderlist half as useful as it could be on Android :,(

                                    • 能否让子任务也具有提醒功能?

                                      现在的子任务不能提醒,使用起来不方便,希望能够增加提醒功能

                                      • Widget 4x2 -- Add Refresh Button

                                        It would be great if the widget (4x2, Android) could have a refresh button to force a sync. I find that changes I make on the web take quite a while to sync over to mobile and display on the widget. Even if I use the sync feature on the website.
