How I Manage My Todos with Wunderlist

Wunderlist is my tool for simple tasks or large tasks, and I love its simplicity and beauty.

The Wunderlist logo

I choose Wunderlist after trying out many task managers such as Things, Asana, Azendoo and Producteev. I sticked with Things for a while, but I found it irritating that I could not access my todos on my PC. I decided to try out the other apps, but I choose Wunderlist over everything else as I could easily access it offline on all my devices, and I loved the way you could organize it.

One of my lists
The list feature is a very important feature of Wunderlist. My Kill list is the list everything goes into when I need to complete it. If I get an assignment from school, I will place it into my school list and hashtag it with the appropriate hashtag, and when I am ready to use it, I place it into my Kill list. In my Inbox is all the items I cannot/can't be bothered to categorise.

If you look at the list at the bottom, you can see a symbol of two people. That means the list is shared. This means you can assign people to a task, and the people you have shared it with can add tasks and tick tasks off.

A task
Another feature I love is hashtags. If I have many Chemistry assignments, I can hashtag them with this: #chemistry. When I click on the hashtag, it shows all todos with that hashtag regardless of which list it is on. This is very useful, as I can see related tasks regardless of which list they are on.

If some of my information is on Evernote I can simply paste the notelink into the 'notes' section of the task, but I am hoping that Wunderlist will release integration with Evernote.

I find that Wunderlist is a really cool tool, and it is so helpful that you can get it on all devices, and you can access tasks regardless of your internet status. I find it simple to use, easy to find content with, and I also find it looks very pretty. I would defiantly recommend that you try it out.


Do you have Wunderlist? Feel free to post in the comments how you use it to organise yourself.
