What are Smart Due Dates?

By using Natural Language Recognition, Wunderlist can automatically detect and add Due Dates and Reminders while you type a new To-do:

If you prefer to not have a Due Date or Reminder automatically created for you, or if you prefer that the Due Date text remain in the To-do's title, just head to your General Account Settings. Here you will have the option to enable and disable Smart Due Dates, Auto Reminders and Smart Due Date Text. 

Smart Due Dates are supported in your mobile app when you add a new To-do via the Quick Add button. Just tap the blue circle and include a date or time in your To-do's title. Quick Add will instantly recognize and create a Due Date and Reminder.

Smart Due Dates are supported on the Web app, Mac desktop app, Android and iPhone (via the blue Quick Add button).
