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.
While duplicating has been added, I'd still like to vote for Templates for Lists, Tasks and Subtasks.
It would help with the tediousness of having to manually re-create subtasks, or manually create tasks with subtasks for all scenarios, find them, copy them, put them in the right spot when a simple select from template option would be much quicker and easier.

https://wunderlist.uservoice.com/forums/136230-wunderlist-feature-requests/suggestions/10403478-export-task-list-like-a-template-that-other-users (While it mentions 'Other Users Can Import', as long as I can import it and have the option to share or not share publicly, that works too).
Copying/pasting a task does not copy/paste its subtasks, only the headline task. Trying to duplicate my common multi-stage process checklists is extremely tedious. How difficult should it be?
Feature request. There should be a feature to set a list as a template. Then when I create a list, there should be an option to create from template.
I think it would be cool if you could create a template and apply to several tasks that are already created!

Will this copy list function be available through the API? This would allow me to setup a NEW CLIENT process that sets them up in my CRM and then creates the List and default assignments based on the services I am engaging with clients on.
We need this on the desktop version!!! Please!
Will this be in the updated Mac App version for El Cap? I just started using your product, so far, I love it but would like to see incorporated into it native OS support, say swipe left and right on trackpad, as well as the ability to duplicate a task within the app, rather than from the Website. Come on ya'll, I know you are using a Mac too!
It would be helpful to have a pulldown menu of saved task templates. So if I always do a set list of tasks when I have a new blog post to handle, say, I can just click on it to add it to my day's schedule without having to go back and copy an old one each time.

When are we going to be able to do this on the Mac and Mobile versions? Come on, now! Keep up the great work!

Can we do this for Mac Desktop as well please?
What about on the Mobil app
I'm sure I'm just overlooking something obvious, but can someone give a bit more instruction. I'd love to be able to use this feature to copy subtasks, but all of my attempts have failed. Thanks in advance for your help.
Incredible! Must have been hard work to program this stunning copy and paste function. So, no wonder, it took nearly 4 years to realize this.

It's great but 'copy' must be written in the name of the copied task as one might have bookmarked the original task. So, to avoid deleting or editing the main task, we must know which one is a copy!

doesnt seem to work on my MacBook desktop version or iPhone version?
I'm really happy to hear that we can copy lists and tasks. However...the instructions, CTRL+C then CTRL+V is not working. Or at least, maybe better instructions. I've done the C on just about everything and tried the P, but I get nothing. I've tried on the app and on the website...nothing. Please help!!!! This will save me so much time.
This is also working for the Windows desktop app! Thank you guys for letting us know, I was waiting for this one!
Woah you guys are so awesome for keeping us in the loop like this. Awesome support.
Many thanks for adding this feature, Wunderlist team. This was at the top of my wish list.
I would love the ability to have templates on Wunderlist. What I'm doing now is making a checklist in Evernote, then putting the link to it into task or subtask. So really I'm having to go to Evernote to do something I'd rather be doing on my lovely Wunderlist.
