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.

  1. Allow more flexible recurring events

    I am hoping future updates will include more flexible recurring events. For any to do list, there are many types of recurring events that are essential, but not included in this new Wunderlist. For example:
    - 3rd Monday of the month
    - Last Thursday of the month
    - Last business day of the month
    - The 15th of the month, or, if it falls on a weekend, the Friday previous, or the Monday after.
    - Every 5th of January, April, July & October

        • Calendar feature so you can see when your tasks are due ahead of time.

          The Calendar feature would make this application perfect. On the left hand side where the lists are located, you can add a Calendar bar which would allow users to see all of their tasks ahead of time, and plan for the future

          • More priority levels

            Instead of just a star indicating priority and then filtering it into a list, set up more than one priority level. I need to have priority tasks but also need them sorted by high, medium, low, and none. not everything is the same priority. I find myself having to rearrange the tasks on the list all the time.

              • Sync with Evernote

                Wunderlist enables me to remember to do everything. Evernote enables me to remember everything. The integration of Wunderlist as Evernote's much needed task manager would be incredible! If my lists were saved as Evernotes it would be very helpful. Please.

                  • Always show task detail view

                    I love the new feature of subtasks, thanks! but it would be great to have the option to always view the subtasks if the user wants rather than having to click on the task itself as subtasks might get lost that way

                    • Completition status of the task e.g. started, In progress

                      Set a status of a task in detailed view to started, in progress, nearly completed etc.
                      I wouldn't suggest setting %completed eg 25%. Too subjective.

                      S. Zeigarnik Effect - if you start a task, and not finish it, this may cause cognitive dissonance until you complete the task. Starting a task and setting the status "in progress" should contribute to setting things done.

                      • 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

                        • 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.

                            • Sync with MS Outlook

                              As a GTD user I use Tasks in Outlook to structure my current GTD activities. David Allen wrote an article / book about how to best do this.

                              Can we expect an outlook integration, preferably with tasks soon?

                                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

                                • Default Start List

                                  Allow your filters such as 'All' to be a default view.
                                  Example, I keep all my lists as folders and have tasks within them. Everytime I must go and click 'All' to get them to display. I would rather have the ability to set it to 'All'. Some other people may want to have the priorities be their default.

                                  Thanks for a great product. It's nice to have it across multiple platforms.

                                    option sort completed items (& separate option to sort incomplete items after adding them).

                                    We use Wunderlist as a sync shopping list.
                                    As you can imagine our main list of items is huge! (just think of all the things you buy on a regular basis for food/home)
                                    When these items have been "shopped", they are "ticked" and end up in the completed items (sub-list); however, they are not sorted in any way, so when we want to buy something again we have to find it and untick it... this takes ages, when the completed list is not sorted alphabetically...
                                    ...likewise…

                                    • 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.
