How do you move your Wunderlist to-do list?

Wunderlist, the task and to-do management app that Microsoft acquired more than four years ago, is shutting down on May 6. The company is no longer accepting registrations, and as of Wednesday, May 6, your Wunderlist tasks will no longer sync across devices.

Microsoft prefers that you switch from Wunderlist to the To-Do app; As a result, this makes the process very simple. But the truth is, you can easily export your Wunderlist data to other task management apps. If you’re a Wunderlist fan who has deferred moving from the app until now, here are instructions on how to switch to Microsoft To Do. We’ve also included instructions for two popular task managers: Todoist and TickTick.

  • Once you’re signed into To-Do, you’ll likely have a pop-up at the bottom of your screen asking if you’re from Wunderlist and if you want to import your data. If you’re reading this, you’re definitely going to want to click that blue box.
  • If you don’t see the invitation, you can still import your data by clicking the gear Settings icon in the top right corner and then selecting “Import from Wunderlist”.
  • You will see a popup telling you exactly what to import from Wunderlist. Click “Import”.
