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/

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.

  1. Apple Watch - speak new tasks into the watch

    Add the ability to speak a new task into the Apple Watch. Very useful when on the go.

    • All To Do's and their associated Subtasks should be expandable and collapsable viewable in the main section list.

      The primary "To Do List Page" should offer two options: 1) To Do's only; 2) To Do's plus Subtasks.

        • One-click date delay

          Would love to have a single button on tasks that will automatically move the task to tomorrow without having to go in and change the date. A "procrastination" button if you will.

          • When adding an item, auto-complete suggestions from completed items

            (I posted this as a comment on one of the suggestions for being able to sort completed items, but it's really a different thing…)

            I think a great way to handle items you want to re-use regularly (like a grocery list) would be: if you start typing it offers auto-complete suggestions for items in that list that are completed. Choosing one of those suggestions unchecks the item (brings it back from the completed area).

            Example: I open my grocery list, start typing and under the input box get any completed items that match, updated the more I type. So typing…

            • Add task - search for existing completed task

              Often you have a task that you have to repeat (buy "milk, buy break, pick up kids, etc.). It would be great if "add task in list feature could search for completed task with same text (LIKE) and offer to reactivate them - something like auto complete feature (and if we don’t select from the list, new task is added). This way we wouldn't have a lot of items in completed list and it would speed up the entering of new task.

              • SORT: ALL by Priority AND/OR Due Date (not grouped by list)

                Put all the top priority items on top by what's due first, then the other items by what's due next.

                In the future if you offer more than just STAR and NO STAR priority levels, such as LOW, MEDIUM, and HIGH, than this feature would work even better, to see at a glance your entire list(s) of TO DOs organized by what's most important and most pending, all at the same time. This way one can just knock off what's at the top and work their way down. There is no better productivity efficiency.

                • Convert subtasks to individual to-dos

                  By dragging an item (subtask) out a to-do or by right click context menu.
                  This is useful for, in example, processing a to-do forwarded via email. Like, you get the email, forward them to wunderlist to make it a to-do, then you make subtasks in that to-do, then one by one drag out those subtasks to convert that subtask into an individual to-dos, then you can delegate it to someone else and/or add different due dates to each to-do.

                  I think it will be very useful.
                  I use similar process in trello. But I prefer wunderlist's interface to manage my…

                      • Exclude a list from a smart list (similar to custom smart list)

                        I have a couple of lists with due dates, but they're not "tasks" per say, and I'd rather not see them in my "today" or "week" list.

                        I use Wunderlist to track my goals and establish habits (as well as a general to-do app), and there's lots of things that I try and complete on a daily basis.

                        For instance, I want to get up and run each morning. When that's done, I check it off.

                        Since I have a lot of small things like that, it clutters up my smart lists like you wouldn't believe. I'd love to be…

                        • Expiring Routines

                          I need routines that expire. If I set a repeating task to brush my teeth every day, but do not check it for a week, I have check off the last seven days or reset the due date. If it wasn't completed, some tasks shouldn't pile up like this.

                            Only show tasks that are not done in search results. Or at least give me the option to switch between all and not done either on the fly in the search view or in general in preferences.

                                • Add from gmail add in

                                  It would be great if we could add an email from gmail as a list item. Todoist has that feature already but they have too many features as premiums. That is very convenient and will fight Sortd too. I think jt is exaclty what is missing. It could be also integrated in the Add to Wunderlist button that aleady exists

                                    • Leave Uncompleted Subtasks Unchecked

                                      Currently, when a Task gets checked off as completed this causes all the subtasks associated with it to get crossed off too. I'd love to see it so that any subtasks that weren't directly checked off as completed remain unchecked even when the main Task gets checked off as completed. I like to be able to look back at projects and see what smaller details might have been passed over and not dealt with it at the time. Currently, even restoring the main Task (i.e. unchecking it) doesn't return the subtasks to their original setting. Thanks.

                                      • Synchronised with iOS reminder App.

                                        Laptop Outlook is synchronised with the iOS default App such as Calendar and Reminder. Sunrise is linked with iOS Calendar but Wunderlist is not linked with Reminder.
                                        It will be great to be linked and integrated with Reminder which is a simple job.

                                        • Snooze tasks

                                          I have tasks that are currently blocked waiting for someone to get back to me. It would be great to have the ability to hide those tasks and have them re-appear at a specific time in the future.
