Shortcuts

Matt — Feb 20, 2019 10:13PM CET

Is there a way to do shortcuts when creating a task, to add it to a list? I used to use ToDoIst and loved that I could just type, "Get this task done tomorrow at 9am #personal" and it would schedule it tomorrow at 9am and add it to my "Personal" list. Would really like the ability to do this in Wunderlist, it would save a TON of time. I frequently add dozens of tasks at one time and having to jump from list to list (or put them in Inbox first) is time consuming.

Hello Matt,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Wunderlist supports Smart Due Dates which will recognize the date and time and make them into due date and reminder: https://6wunderkinder.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/2228217

If you use the Mac app, you can use the top bar menu to quickly enter a task and choose the list from there.

Please check the keyboard shortcuts here: https://6wunderkinder.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/889536-how-do-i-use-shortcuts-in-wunderlist-

Please let me know if you have other questions. Have a great day!

Regards,

Thanks for the response. I am currently using smart dates, but I was referring more to categorizing the task into the list. Much like tags work? Is this possible?

Hello Matt,

Thank you for getting back to me.

Unfortunately, we do not have a feature that allows you to type hashtags with list names to quickly put tasks into the list. However, on some versions, there is a way to add a task without going into a list first, for example, on iOS, with the Quick Add button, you can type the task and then choose the list: https://6wunderkinder.desk.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1908008-quick-add-for-iphone

If you have further questions, please tell me the platforms you are using so I can answer accordingly.

Looking forward to your reply!

Regards,
Fangyuan
