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/

We have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service and your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy, including the license terms. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

  1. End date for repeating tasks

    End Date for Repeating Tasks

  2. List Description

    It would be great to have a description or notes for a list. I use Wunderlist lists for projects I'm working on. I'd like to have a description for the project people viewing the list can understand the purpose and plan for the project. It would also be a great place to link to files relevant to the project (spreadsheets, presentations, design files, etc).

  4. List-level notes

    It would be great to have an additional text field for each list so that you can write general notes for a whole project or a project description.

  5. Hide Inbox

    I use Wunderlist for personal use only so I really don't need an Inbox. I don't use it to coordinate with others.

    Can you please add the option to hide it? Thanks.

  6. SHARING ROLES

    Let the owner of the list be able to give each person they add in that list a specific role, by restricting the actions of whoever they want, like restricting some people from being able to edit anything in the list, or restricting them from deleting the list at all.
    Also add the option of being notified when someone deletes an item in a SHARED list...

  7. option to add a tasks location via "@"

    like @library @office so that when "@office" one can easily check what there is to be done there

    also very helpful would be a different short cut (like lets say *) to add a time or time frame to a task- e.g.:

    phone finance office @office am (or 9:00-12:00 or whatever there working times might be)

    it would theoratically work with hashtags as well - i am temporarily using them instead- but this would be a lot easier

  8. Countdown of days/hours/minutes to deadline

    Suppose today is August 10th and we put a deadline at August 5th (without time). Wunderlist would show a countdown to the date.
    Also, if we add time wunderlist would show countdown to the date and also to the time.

  9. Permanently remove or disable the "Smart due dates" feature

    Wunderlist attempts to automatically set due dates for new tasks.

    The feature can be great when it works, but can be incredibly frustrating when it doesn't. Wunderlist is overly sensitive to time-related words, and frequently sets due dates (and removes corresponding text) when it shouldn't.

    Some examples of tasks that incorrectly get due dates:

    In my experience, the feature causes problems much more often than it provides value. Until that statistic is reversed, the feature should be removed or disabled by default.

  10. Monthly view of tasks

    I schedule tasks over the month and then realize at the beginning of he week there is so much stuff to do causing me to reschedule. If I have the ability to view everything that has to get done each day for a month, I can space it out better versus landing on the week and then getting overwhelmed. Great job with the app.

  11. a field for adding hyperlinks to a file or folder would be great instead of always embedding files.

    Having a field for adding hyperlinks to a file or folder would be great instead of always embedding files (also supporting spaces - e.g. SharePoint links). This would mean the server where the file is stored can automatically manage security to make sure no one accidentally gets access to files they should not.

  12. Show completion date for subtasks

    When a subtask is completed, it doesn't show up in the completions the same way as when a task is completed.

    This would be especially useful for people who use Wunderlist integrated with slack (I would love to see a slack notification when subtasks are completed so that I could see which date I completed a given to-do).

  13. Add Gamification

    It would be cool if you would add some sort of gamification like in HabitRPG for the list. Maybe it could be optional as a not for business-feature.

  17. Change the List Optionsl

    Make the grocery list different from "completed tasks" lists. Show entire grocery list and let users check the items they need without disappearing as a grayed-out completed item.

  19. Short code for making something due today

    I really wish there was a "short code" for making something automatically due today. So, if I had something due yesterday but didn't do it, I'd like to be able to click on it quickly and make it due today. Like using the T or something like that.
