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. Password

    Can you make a password protection? I mean, when I open the app, I need a password to open app. Great app for note ever. But I need this feature to use app. Because I keep my secrets in my notes. If can, you pls make password in what lít, what note I want. Not the whole app. It could make the app-opening speed doesn't slow down and also keep my secrets for me. Thanks!

      undo (ctrl+z) would be good to have to undo if you accidentally delete a task that you don't want to delete, or as a quick way to "uncheck" a task if you marked it complete by mistake.

        • Snooze Tasks (Change Due Date) easily

          Some other apps (productivity and email apps) have an option to snooze an item by a few hours, to the evening, morning, next week (the next monday), or next weekend.

          This is very convenient when scheduling tasks and would make a great addition to Wunderlist.

          • Subsequent Tasks / Waiting On

            I would like to have the option to create a string of Tasks where one cannot be started until another (or maybe a few others) have been completed.

            This would either involve hiding tasks that cannot be completed at the moment or display some sort of "Waiting On <Task Name>" tag.

            One example string of tasks:

            ...............________________Design New Deck_____________
            ...............|..........................................|..........................................|
            Buy Materials.................Dig out Concrete Holes................Cut wood
            ...............|____......................______|..........................................|
            ........................Pour Concrete......................................................|
            .................................|___..........................................._________|
            .........................................Assemble Wood Structure...................
            ............................................................|.........................................
            ....................................................Coat Deck.................................

            Sorry for all the periods! It was the only way to get the spacing right.

            • Sort by most recent update / comment

              Most issue trackers (e.g. github) have an option to sort by most recent update / comment / other activity. This option is currently missing in wunderlist.

              Use case: You want to respond to recent activity on a bunch of tasks.

              Background: We are currently using wunderlist as a light-weight issue tracker. Not sure it was meant for that, but it seems ok so far.

              • Automatically assign to self

                When you create a list that only has an owner Wunderlist should automatically assign newly created items to the owner so that they appear on the My Assigned List because at the moment if you only have the owner on the list you cannot assign it to anyone so it doesn't appear in my assigned list which is a real pain.

                • Make check boxes larger

                  Please make check boxes larger. The recent update made it hard to check items in the list using the mobile app. It's an extra effort because you return to the previous screen and you have to scroll down to the item again. Thank you very much! awesome app!

                  • Keep it simple, thanks! Feedback.

                    I was an early adopter and a but critical of lack of feature set at launch.

                    Today I think wunderlist is my preferred task manager; all the rest have an interface that is too busy, wunderlist keeps it simple and clean with the most commonly used features clearly laid out.

                    The killer feature for me is seamlessly attaching files to notes, so great for people like me who acquire a bunch of PDFs they hope to get around to reading. This is just awesome.

                    Please don't over complicate things like other managers.

                    Thanks!

                        • Schedule tasks in Calendar

                          They say that unless you set aside a specific time to complete a task, it never gets done. That's why I would love to have the ability to schedule a task into my Windows 10 calendar at a specific time ending at a specific time, and if needed, on multiple occasions/different times.

                          It would be a bonus if Wunderlist could warn me about scheduling conflicts with events already on my calendar.

                          Cheers and thanks for a great app!

                            • Set reminder to check LISTS

                              Instead of individual reminder let us set a push notification a specific list under "edit list" options. For example: I would set push notification that reminds me to check my work list everytime I go to work at 9am M-F. I would also set a push notification to check my home to do list when I leave work at 6pm M-F. I also have a weekend to do list so I set a reminder to check that every Sat and Sun at 10am. So basically a notification that reminds you "Hey you got stuff to do"

                                    This feature request builds on other requests where a user creating a task and assigining it to another user should be able to set the reminder in the assignee's timezone. Case in point: My wife is in India and I am in Australia. We have a folder for tasks associated to migration that I want her to take care of before she travels. However, when I create the tasks and assign them to her, it shows me the reminder at the time I set instead of her. Also, since we are in different timezones, it would make sense if the…

                                      • End date for reoccurring task.

                                        If I want to work on a task daily for a week it would be nice if I could give it an end date.

                                        So with the repeat options (every day, every week, etc) there would be an end date so that this item would be available up until you say

                                        Starts 09/10/15 repeats daily until 09/19/15

                                        • 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…
