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.

Helpful for simple task lists

Pros

Wunderlist is very helpful when it comes to keeping track of individual tasks and checking if daily to-dos.

Cons

It isn't the best project management tool - as it isn't very easy to add details, dates, etc.

Exceptional (And Free) Task Management

2019-11-05

Time management and project organization.

Pros

This app is free, and it offers incredible task organization and management options.

Cons

It is a challenge to find cons in this free service. Rather, something I think could be improved is additional sub-folder organization options. It would be great if these could be reordered outside of alphabetical or due-date order.

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.

Keeping Track of Kids and Projects

2019-02-12

Whether assigning kids their chores, tracking my own task list, or organizing an event wide project, this is a valuable tool.

Pros

I can set up a task, assign it to one of my 3 kids, and it will appear in their own device as something they need to get done before I get home from work.

Cons

Almost like a GANNT chart in project management.

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.

Easy to use without filling a lot of fields to get a task added to the list Reminders for tasks nearly to be late Desktop, web and mobile applications

Cons

Limited filtering options like filtering between dates for an specific user(s) all the tasks completed, completed but late, etc

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!

Prioritize your daily tasks and have a productive week

2019-01-15

Precision in the execution of my daily activities, I can concentrate on the activities that are a priority for me and to increase the efficiency in my work

Pros

The timing of the information is perfect, available for several mobile devices, the design is simple and easy to use, creates tasks from emails, availability of your tasks at any time and place.

Cons

It would be a much more complete application if it could be integrated with other applications, for the rest I am satisfied with it

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.

Best project management software with whole lot of features

2019-02-01

It really helped us to plan and track the tasks

Pros

Very easy to track the features in it with a deadline and due date among that.

Cons

Though their User Innterface is clean, it looks messy with lot of tasks. Chat option is really missing in this.

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

This is a a great, simple tool for keeping track of your upcoming tasks. 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.

The best to do list on market

2018-12-09

It is in my opinion better than Todoist and I really loved Todoist so kudos to Wunderlist team!

Pros

that makes this tool complex enough to conduct simple projects, make notes, subtasks and so on.

Cons

You have to plan projects and do Gantt Charts in one software and then move tasks to Wunderlist.

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.

My default to-do list app

2019-02-18

I use it for mostly listing and keeping up with mid-term projects. So far not big complaints.

Pros

Can set automatic reminder via email.

Cons

I rarely use its 'subtasks" features and notes you put into each task isn't as visible as it's supposed to be, leading me to often forgetting details of each task.

Wunderlist at RG

2019-07-16

its easy to use, simple format but yet has all the tools i need to create and track more complicated projects.

Pros

Wunderlist allows me to sort all my task into individual folders making it easier to sit down with a staff and go over an action plan. I aso like the fact that I can add notes to task and create subtask .

Cons

Would love to ask Siri to add projects to my task list and have it go to wunderlist instaead of its apples task list

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.
