Wunderlist the todo list service that was recently acquired by Microsoft, has this week rolled out a new updated to its Mac application bringing with it a number of new features, tweaks and enhancements for users to enjoy.
One major update is the new Wunderlist Quick Add feature that allows user to quickly add tasks or reminders directly from the Mac desktop without the need to enter the Wunderlist application.
Other new features include Quick Search, Smart Due Dates and Quick Add for Apple Watch all of which are explained by the Wunderlist development team below.
As you work through a document you can quickly add to-dos without getting distracted. So, whether you’re browsing the web in Safari, editing photos in Photoshop or writing a document in Word, just press CTRL+Option(Alt)+W to instantly create your to-dos within Wunderlist.
Now that you are using the Quick Add to create your to-dos in Wunderlist, let’s get you set up with Smart Dates. Activate Quick Add (remember, it is CTRL+Option(Alt)+W), type in your to-do and give it some context in terms of the due date. For example, add ‘Prepare a presentation tomorrow’ or ‘Join a conference call next Monday’, and watch as a Due Date and Reminder is automatically created.
With creating to-dos, due dates and reminders covered, let’s magically transform Quick Add to Quick Search! Activate Quick Add (CTRL+Option (Alt)+W)–notice the magnifying glass icon right next to the ‘+’? Click on the magnifying glass, and voilà, you have activated a powerful search tool.
Update your Wunderlist for Apple Watch app here first. Once you open the update, you’ll see that your most requested feature – voice input – is here! With the arrival of Quick Add on Apple Watch, you can capture your to-dos on the go. Simply open the app, Force Touch, tap and say ‘Call the new clients tomorrow’.
