I swiped a task by accident, what can I do?

How can I remove my swiped items from my active lists?

Where can I find my completed tasks?

You can find them under the Completed Tasks folder in the mobile and desktop apps’ Settings. To learn more, see Completing and Archiving Tasks.


I completed a recurring task and the same task reappeared. Why?

A recurring task is a task that returns on a specified interval every time it is completed. When you complete a recurring task, the next occurrence pops up. This means that what is popping up is not the same task, but it is the next occurrence of the recurring task. To remove a recurring reminder, simply delete its reminder as explained on this page.


I rearranged the order of my tasks on my phone, but the order didn’t sync to my other devices. How can I fix it?

If your task order is not syncing across platforms, please log out (under Settings – Profile) and log back into the app on all platforms. If it is still not syncing, please ‘Report a Bug’ through the app (under Settings – Support).


Can I import from Wunderlist?

You certainly can! To import from Wunderlist, please log in here and request a download. You will then receive an email with a link to download a zip file. Inside this folder you will find a JSON file titled ‘Tasks’ – please send it to customers@any.do from your Any.do account’s email address and ask to import your data. Please do not forward us the email from Wunderlist as it required log-in. Make sure to forward the JSON ‘Tasks’ file only. Be advised that you must have an active account in order to import.
