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.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. adding time to your todos

    I was wondering if you had thought about adding a feature that lets you add a time that you think it would take to complete a task.

    For me when i add items to my todo list i often write the time i think it will take to complete that task, for example:

    Hang up pictures (20mins)

    I do this so that i can see at a glance how long each task is going to take me and it helps me choose which jobs to do next - ie i have 10mins spare which job should i do.

    • Color code recurring tasks - e.g red if due - green if not due etc

      I would like to be able to set colors for items that are due /. Eg Red for items that are due. Green or white if not due yet. This would be very helpful.

      • Ability to move item on mobile app when searching similar to desktop search

        When searching for an item when on a desktop, the user has the ability to move the found items to other folders/lists.

        However, on a mobile app, the user does not have this ability. Instead, they have to find the list in which the item resides, then go to the list, manually find the item, and then move it.

          • stop stripping dates out of my to dos! Cool feature idea, but it put the date in there because I want it there

            I keep ending up with entries like

            "Tell to bob that the meeting has moved to"

            because it had a date in there!

                • Unique icon for subtasks

                  I would find it helpful to see a unique icon when a task has subtasks versus notes. Right now (on windows in chrome), a pushpin icon is displayed if the task has notes OR subtasks. It would be great to use a different icon (maybe a check mark or similar) when the task has subtasks. This way I can quickly identify when a task has subtasks which would save time.
                  Thank you,
                  Jason

                  • When an item is deleted or completed, also delete it from the synced calendar

                    Currently, my due items are synced with my calendar (iCal), but when I've marked an item completed or when I've deleted it, it stays visible in iCal. It would be great if those could be removed from the synced calendar.

                    • Add context menu commands to app menu commands, or create keyboard shortcuts for context menu commands, or both (OSX)

                      At the end of my day, anything I didn't complete becomes 'Due Tomorrow.' Right-clicking, then selecting 'Due Tomorrow' starts to feel a little time consuming. I can't create a keyboard shortcut, however, because the command isn't in the app menu.

                      So moving/duplicating context menu commands in the app menu so we can create shortcuts, or just adding them to the default Wunderlist shortcut list would be cool.

                      • Date/time selection on Mobile

                        Change due date selection method to match reminder method. Either provide a calendar view to pick date AND time for both or make them match. Being able to pick the year in due date doesn't seem to offer much value...especially if it is t possible to pick the year for a reminder.

                        • Zusammenarbeit mit devonthink pro office wünschenswert

                          z.B. wäre es sinnvoll, man könnte Dateien direkt aus Devonthink in die Wunderlist laden oder in Devonthink speichern.
                          Es gäbe aber sicher noch viele andere Möglichkeiten, mit Devon zusammenzuarbeiten, also macht einen Anfang.

                          • Allowing sorting and prioritizing of items on the TODAY list

                            I often put a lot of items on the Today list. However, there is no way to sort the list or prioritize items. It would be great if you were able to sort items on the TODAY list as you can on a regular list. As well as, add a priority feature so you can prioritize one item over the other on the list and sort accordingly.

                                        Select multiple items in a list and change all of their due dates together - eg, assigning them all due tomorrow. Adding this under the 'move' menu is a suggestion.
