Great software for personal and professional work

2017-11-09

Pros

I can seamlessly move and share tasks between people, track tasks, set up alerts and more!

Cons

I have found very few cons to this software as it's meant to be a simple task tracking tool and not a complex project management tool like Visual Studio or Microsoft Project.

Wunderlist is my #1 productivity tool for staying on top of my work.

2018-07-04

I use Wunderlist to manage day-to-day business activities. Nothing beats the simplicity of a checklist.

Pros

I use this to keep track of all work that needs to be done (project management).

Cons

If I were to add features, they would be integrations with third party tools.

Amazing tool

2018-05-22

Pros

I love the sub tasks that allow granular progress to your goals!

Cons

I do wish the sub tasks had a way of visually tracking progress perhaps on a chart. Sub tasks really help drive task completion and ways to track momentum without drilling into each main task would be great!

I use it to take the detail of personal projects. And I perform tests for use in the company.

2018-04-18

It supports the management of project activities, personal and company, having invited members streamlines the work and responsibility of the activities.

Pros

Allows people to be invited to the lists, follow-up alarms and general due date of the task are established, which means that the monitoring of the activity improves significantly.

Cons

It would be ideal to keep track of changes in the task.

I liked using wunderlist for task management

2018-03-07

I think the thing that really benefited me was using the online dashboard to help manage my tasks.

Pros

I liked how it allowed me to prioritize my to-do list.

Cons

I didn't like the interface and I felt like there could have been more features like with trello.

Simple and intuitive task manager

2018-05-01

I benefitted by being able to track my upcoming tasks quickly and efficiently, helping me to finish them on time.

Pros

It's great for teams, as it allows you to share and collaborate lists, making it an excellent tool for group business projects.

Cons

Folder management could be more feature rich, however that would go against the simple and intuitive nature of the platform.

A decent project management tool, could be improved with updated UX

2018-06-21

If you're looking for a to-do list app, this is it. If you need more than that, look elsewhere.

2018-02-17

It's also good for helping you prioritize which tasks out of all your tasks need to be done today.

Pros

It is laser-focused on being all about creating and organizing task lists, and allowing you to keep good notes around each task.

Cons

If you are trying to manage a project, you may find that you can do it at first, but eventually it is going to get too complicated to be handled by the list format.

A Great Way to Manage All of Your Tasks for You and Your Team(s)

2016-09-28

I use it for my personal life as well as Team Projects and Project Management to keep track of all of our tasks in the company.

Pros

-Easy to use Reminder System that is effective at keeping you up to date with what needs to be done and not easy to ignore or let anything slip through the cracks with push notifications. -Smart Tasks allowing you to setup reminders, notifications, group members, tags, etc by simply using the correct words in your tasks and minimizing the time it takes to setup your tasks in general giving you more time to complete them!

Cons

-Inability to create projects or automated tasks directly within the app itself, however this can be achieved by using integrations with Zapier etc or using other tools to talk to Wunderlist and create the tasks for you.

Recommendations to others considering Wunderlist

If you don't require a robust system for managing your tasks and are looking for something that is simple with some extra icing on the top this is it. It is very easy to manage and does about everything you will need it to do in a task management system. But it is not a project management system.

Best To Do List App

2018-03-24

Too bad will be discontinued for Microsoft To Do.

Pros

I can categorize my to-dos and can assign as favorites. Drag and drop feature is there to add them to a folder.

Cons

Team collaboration is not effective and it didn't match my expectation.

Simplified and Effective Task and ToDo Management

2018-08-05

It's great for that, setting dates on items, and being able to drag-and-drop to re-prioritize.

Pros

It's true to the desktop UI, features, and is designed extremely well for mobile devices!

Cons

They got bought by Microsoft a year or two ago, and I believe may be discontinuing support and development in favor of another Miscrosoft product (which doesn't work nearly as well as Wunderlist). I'm hoping that since they have so many satisfied users, they will end up continuing ongoing development for Wunderlist!

The thrill of hearing the "ding" of a checked off item. Wunderlist is a great to-do tracker.

2018-09-07

It allows me to keep track of all my to-do list and tasks.

Pros

-Super easy to create your first to-do list, can create many different lists (to-do, wish list, project list, shopping list, etc) -Allows multiple list to be grouped by categorized and organized -Tasks can be assigned to others -Syncs with phone app, desktop app, and online website -Allows shared list with other people, so both people can be on certain lists -Easy to have a simple title, yet you can open it and have lots of detail -Auto Syncs quickly -Has due dates and reminders -Integrates with Outlook

Cons

-There is not a calendar view that shows your due dates like a calendar - which makes it hard to use for sequencing to-dos in order for project management -I would love for it to have a "secret santa" feature - where people can make Christmas list and randomly generate who is supposed to get that list (but this is another app).

Stay Focused!

2018-09-10

Wunderlist is great for small organizations and projects. Keep track of everything in one place, across all your devices!

Pros

Keep notes about your projects, attach tasks to your google calendar, assign team members to tasks, and more.

Cons

This is certainly better for small team projects or personal to-do lists.

Great organizational tool

2018-05-02

Pros

It allows collaborative to-do lists where you can assign tasks to other members, track progress, get notified when tasks are completed, follow up/remind about tasks that are past due, etc.

Cons

For example, if you have a big project and want to break the different categories of the project down to more specific lists within a bigger list, it's not an option.

Great to stay organized in a day full of busy tasks

2018-03-07

It's very easy to jot down a reminder as a task when I'm out and about by using the phone app.

Pros

Wunderlist allows me to coordinate and track projects throughout all of my employees to make sure everything is getting done on time.

Cons

If I create tasks, I'd like to make it so they are not able to adjust the settings within them such as the recurring option.

Low-powered lists that are dead simple for microtask management

2018-07-26

Fast task management and reminders.

Pros

I love the ability to set recurring tasks, and the ability to set reminders down to the exact time I need them (that trigger a push notification on my phone).

Cons

It also handles in app activity from personal and shared lists poorly between devices, and sometimes just poorly in general.

Have things to do? Wunderlist will keep you on track and get your to do list done!

2018-04-20

Keeps me organized so I have more time to work and spend less time looking for information.

Pros

You can use it for anything from freelance projects to grocery lists to planning vacations (I've done this).

Cons

There's no integration with anything else , like time tracking or invoicing software, that would make it a serious productivity app.

It allows me to handle simple task lists to keep track of general tasks to complete.

Pros

Opening an account and creating tasks can be achieved with few clicks.

It does not work well for very long projects since seeing all the tasks in a listing can be overwhelming.

To Do List, Done Better!

Pros

The experience is seamless on any device, I use it on my desktop, ipad and mobile. All my list syncs quickly, be it my day to day work or a shopping list or my travel bucket list.

Cons

Interface design can be improved, It's bit cluttered in the age of minimalism.

We have used Wunderlist for daily activities or weekly planning.

Pros

Having a tool that allows you to add activities and follow up or manage these, is Wunderlist.

Wunderlist does not currently have a dashboard with the list of all the activities and their status (culminated or not completed).

Perfect Task Organizer and To-Do List

2018-09-21

It's an easy-to-use, no-nonsense task organizer.

Pros

While we do use other task/project management software, we still rely heavily on Wunderlist due to it's simplicity and ability to keep us focused.

Cons

Not a problem if you're running other project management programs, but if this is your only managing software, you may be left wanting more.
