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.

    • Archive a completed list

      It would be nice to archive lists so that they're not in the way once they're done, but you can view them if you need them.

        Hi there,
        Although not being actively worked on right now, this feature is very much on our radar :) We also regularly bring it up at our all-hands meetings.

        We can see how this would be super helpful for lists you need to re-use, but not so often (like a packing list). We also see how it’d be helpful if you’re using Wunderlist at work and need to keep a record of your projects.

        Cheers,
        Simon

        • option sort completed items (& separate option to sort incomplete items after adding them)

          option sort completed items (& separate option to sort incomplete items after adding them).

          We use Wunderlist as a sync shopping list.
          As you can imagine our main list of items is huge! (just think of all the things you buy on a regular basis for food/home)
          When these items have been "shopped", they are "ticked" and end up in the completed items (sub-list); however, they are not sorted in any way, so when we want to buy something again we have to find it and untick it... this takes ages, when the completed list is not sorted alphabetically...
          ...likewise…

                  Make a channel with the webservice IFTTT. Check it out here: www.ifttt.com. We could use wunderlist with other services provided by IFTTT without the need for it to be natively supported in wunderlist.

                  • folders within folders

                    the new folders feature is..... "nice" but not quite GREAT.... for it to b a great feature would be if you were abe to infinitely create folders within folders so that you can better organise clients and their projects, tasks & sub-tasks

                      • More sub-task levels!

                        In our company we often forced to do heavy strategic planning and we are facing the lack of task, sub task levels. It would make a great difference to be able to create 2nd or 3rd lvl sub-tasks and assign them separately ( as well as mark sub-tasks urgent, important of "if possible") . For example :

                        Renovate office ( Main task)
                        1. Sub-Task ( Assigned to Bob)
                        1.1. Second level sub-task
                        1.2. Second level sub-task ( Assigned to Bobs assistant)
                        1.2.1. Third level sub-task * (Marked as "URGENT")
                        1.3. Second level sub-task (Assigned to John )
                        2. Sub-Task (…

                        • Make a research including Completed Tasks.

                          It would be really helpfull to add a checkbox in Options, to allow the CTRL+F default search to include the completed tasks.

                            • Choose snooze time when the reminder comes up

                              It would be very helpful to have the ability to choose the snooze period when the reminders comes up. e.g. I have a task to make a phone call at 15:00 but when the reminder comes up, i decide that i want to make this phone call at 18:00, it would be easier if could choose the snooze time rather than editing the task or postpone it to the predetermined snooze period i set.

                              • Have a "Planned for Today" list in addition to the "Due Today" list

                                The "Planned for Today" list would be something very similar to the AnyDO Moment which runs each day and prompts users to plan their day.

                                Wunderlist could use a separate flag, which would indicate tasks that are due in the future, but we plan to work on today.

                                We could have the tasks being flagged for today based on the date for when the user sets the reminder. I know this would be copying AnyDO, but hey, that is a very useful feature and will help make Wunderlist better.

                                • Show or view all tasks within a folder when clicking the folder icon

                                  When I click on a folder in the sidebar, all tasks within that folder should appear in the main window. The same way if I click All it shows all tasks, when I click a folder it should show all tasks within that folder, subgrouped by list name. The folder system is highly flawed as it is at the moment because of this. If All shows All, Folder should show All within Folder. Makes total sense don't you think?

                                        Adding a calendar view, so that you could see your tasks by day, week and month and schedule them will make this applicatio perfect. I also suggest adding a possibility to add tasks and schedule start and end time as wll as adding a possibility to create and schedule meetings. This will be a great improvement in productivity, Users will have everything in one place and will not have to worry if they scheduled a meeting or a call for a project or not.

                                        • Specific week days tasks

                                          Would be great to select only workdays for some specific tasks. Right now app missing them. So let's say i need to do the same stuff each work day except weekend, right now i setup a daily task with reminder to post time report of my work hours, works awesome, but i don't need that at weekend.

                                          For weekend i have same repeating tasks as well. So i suggest to add that to custom option where i can select which days i need to get notifications and in which days i should do that task.
