Custom Smart Lists
For a Tomorrow Smart List for example, or Overdue, etc
Peter Morrison commented
Please add this!
I use doit.im to manage my work related tasks, which has the tomorrow smart list, but would absolutely love to have this with my personal tasks in Wunderlist.
The current option of double clicking a task (1st click), then selecting tomorrows date from the due date dropdown calendar (2 more clicks) then minimizing (5th click in total) is such a burden when moving tasks I can't complete until tomorrow. Drag and drop the task to the Tomorrow smart list is one click which ='s productivity!
I was pleased to see this listed as the 8th most requested feature here: http://support.wunderlist.com/customer/portal/articles/1155610-vote-for-feature-requests
There was only 15 votes under this suggestion, which I used my last vote on. Can anyone provide a link to a suggestion with more votes, so I don't throw this one away?
that would be very useful when making plans for tomorrow
I would love that kind of feature! It would also be great, if one could add time sensitive cases to a custom smart list. For example I would really much like to have a "Today" list that would kick out or hide items from my "Work" list after 18:00.
I don't understand why we don't have this. How does everyone else quickly reschedule several tasks from 'Today' to 'Tomorrow'?
I would like to be able to slide and drop. Thank you.
What convinced me wunderlist was for me was the simplicity. But this is seriously the only thing urgently missing for me.

Also is an any.do feature
Remember The Milk has a feature like this-- you can use saved searches to create "Smart Lists". This would be a great addition to Wunderlist.
Please add in the votes from "Customizable smart lists with tags" (currently 21 on 7/20). Also note that tags + tag-aware smart lists gives you the same functionality as putting tasks in multiple lists. That feature request has even more votes than smart lists: "make it possible to add a task to multiple lists" currently has 297 votes; the other assorted versions of this feature request have 11 votes across them.
A separate Smart List for Overdue Items in crucial for this app. Right now, when you look in your Today Smart List it is very difficult to "see" overdue items depending upon the particular List that an item might be in (e.g., if the overdue item is in a List that starts with the letter Z it will only be seen at the very bottom of the Today Smart List.
At a minimum, there should be a new Smart List that would only contain "Overdue Items".
The other big problem with all of the available Smart Lists is that there is ONLY one view. Within the right-hand panel, you should be able to sort the Items in a Smart List by the following: 1.) By List name (with items in alphabetical order with the List name; this is the current state); 2.) By Item Name sorted alphabetically (exclusive of what List the Items are in; 3.) By Item Name sorted by due date and reminder time (This may be less important for the Today Smart List, but it is critical for the other Smart Lists); 4.) By Invitee, sorted by Item within Invitee and even an option to have the Items within Invitee be either alphabetical or by Due date.
Please let me know if I can clarify further...
This has been promised since ages ago but nothing happens. Don't even know why it was removed in the first place as it was a great feature. Terrible decision that made me move to Astrid, but with the service being acquired by yahoo and probably shutting down I have come back to my old turf just to see nothing has changed. Today list is a catastrophe the way it is at the moment...
please bring back the overdue list and removed overdue items from today and week lists

yes, custom smart lists, created by tags. Or ability to sort by tags
This could be solve also with tags. List related per project and tags for where you can do them. I am using now the same kind of lists
This has been under review for a very long time now. Any news about this? If you don't bring it back I'll have to go looking for other services... Wunderlist is not usable for me any more.
I find it frustrating to have past due items mixed in with the today items. And in the week smart list on my iPad 3, they don't show the actual date or turn it red or anything. So, I don't know which ones are past due and which ones are truly due today.
When overdue items are in today list it obscures the days priorities with unnecessary priorities. I agree bring back W1 overdue functionality.
already there is the same idea, we combine the votes. :http://wunderlist.uservoice.com/forums/136230-wunderlist-2-feature-requests/suggestions/3547745-customizable-smart-lists-with-tags
Hi can we have have smart lists that are based on collating tags from tasks in different lists - e.g. @computer / @client meeting from different project lists
YES! Custom smart lists would solve a lot of problems and allow a lot of useful ways to use wunderlist optimally.
I also ask for this.
Please, add the possibility of saving searches as "custom filters", that could be later included in the left bar, together with "today", "week", etc.
Very useful for many pourposes. For example, users that want to distinguish "next" tasks of "someday" tasks could add a tag into the text of the task to be considered, say #next or #soon, and then save a search that could be found next to "today" and "week" smart lists.
In fact, that was what I thought the new "smart lists" feature was about!! :D
I prefer to have the overdue and today consolidated as it is in the new Wunderlist. They still show "yesterday" in red. If you decide you don't want to do them today, you can just reschedule the task to a date.
