  1. Add the ability to "skip" a recurring task

    So I've got a recurring task for everyday to "write in my journal". But I forget one day and want to mark yesterday's task as skipped (i.e. not actually completed) so that the task resets to the next occurrence. Hope that makes sense...

    • Integration with Drafts with use of URL schemes

      I use the Drafts app, and one of the best things about it is the ability to populate other apps from it. Is there any chance of use of URL schemes, so that Drafts can interact with Wunderlist? This way, I can write lists in drafts and upload to automatically create a populated list in your app

      Thanks!

      • Totally hide or delete completed tasks

        Add a feature within the settings or a short cut to hide or automatically delete completed tasks. Or add completed tasks into a SmartList instead of at the bottom of a list - with a button to clear completed tasks.

        It seems weird that I am able to see if I walked the dog over two weeks ago.

        Some tasks I may want to keep a record of to see what and when I did things, but some tasks are just too unimportant to keep at the bottom of a list.

        I find it to still be intrusive in the…

        • make it possible to hide lists

          have an option to hide lists so they can be private, you could change this the same way you change the completely items list.

            • set reminder date relative to due date (i.e. 1 day before)

              When setting the reminder, I'd suggest that it give options such as: 1 day before, 2 days before, 1 week before etc.

              The benefit in having the reminder date as a relative value to the due date is that when you change the due date, the reminder date moves with it. Another option could be given too for a custom reminder date, that pops up a calendar for selection.

              Right now, with the calendar pop up as the only method, the reminder date has to be set manually each time the due date changes. This enhancement would be a material…

                • Tasks: smaller font & multiple lines

                  I'd like to see tasks displayed with a smaller font & on multiple lines in mobile version. It's difficult to scan tasks when they're truncated.

                          I'm trying to migrate from Toodledo, and I'd like the option of using the Starred Item feature for my App badge. I use "Stars" for things I need to draw my attention to on my phone.

                              • Wunderlist Gantt Chart Feature

                                Since Wunderlist is a task manager how about it have a Gantt tab at the bottom alongside the "Today, Tomorrow, Next 7 Days..." tabs?

                                This would assist users the option to view all their respective List and entered related Tasks in chronological & duration of execution. Options as assigning colour codes to each task line could be an aesthetic feature, and even the minimal "note" icon that can appear on the bar to give feedback on the task & support link, document, image attachments etc.

                                • Implement more powerful iOS badge options

                                  I love Wunderlist 2, but my one pet peeve about it (my only problem with it, actually) is that the app badge system is not nearly powerful enough. It really needs options to have the badge number represent things like:

                                  Total items in Inbox, total items in Today, total items in Week, total items in Starred, total items in Custom List X, total items in Custom List Y, you get the idea.

                                  Upcoming due tasks (e.g. All items due today, all items due today and tomorrow, all items due in the next 5 days, all items due in the next…

                                      • Please ad a trash can. I'd be great to fix the mistake of accidentally deleting a task.

                                        Pretty simple. When deleting a task, place it in a trashcan so that it can be retrieved. I know you have an 'are you sure' feature before deleting, but I know I'd like a trash can...

                                        • Separate headline »Past-Due« in smart lists »today« and »week«

                                          It is very irritating to see past-due tasks below the current date in the smart lists »today« and »week« (Screenshot: http://i.minus.com/ibb7AFvvoNrFgr.jpg)

                                          Please add a separate headline »Past-Due« instead. So in the »week« list it is »Past-Due, Today, Tomorrow, Saturday, Sunday, …, Wednesday« and in »today« it is »Past-Due, Today«).
