Wunderlist import fails

(closed account) says:
Hi there,

since yesterday, I try to import all my Wunderlist data in my newly created remember the milk account - unfortunately this fails every time.

What I've tried is:
- import directly via web and desktop app - fails after entering Wunderlist credentials
- consulted the online help and then:
- downloaded Wunderlist export (.zip), tried to import this file - fails
- renamed .zip to .json - fails (seen the Safari hint in the faq)
- extracted the zip. found a "Tasks.json" in .zip root, looks like this contains all tasks. tried to import - fails

error message: sorry, this file does not contain valid tasks.

I've also tried to download the export with different browsers (MS Edge Chromium, Firefox) - no success.

any idea?

what does work - at least partly - is to at first import Wunderlist data to todoist and then to remember the milk - but then all finished tasks are gone, which is pretty bad

Thanks in advance!

Hi rockatilly,
Sorry this isn't working for you so far! Are you able to contact us so we can follow up privately by email?

We may want to look more closely at your file or get some other details to see what else we can do to get these imported. Thanks!
