About task lists

You can use task lists to break the work for an issue or pull request into smaller tasks, then track the full set of work to completion.

About task lists

A task list is a set of tasks that each render on a separate line with a clickable checkbox. You can select or deselect the checkboxes to mark the tasks as complete or incomplete.

You can use Markdown to create a task list in any comment on GitHub Enterprise Server.

You can view task list summary information in issue and pull request lists, when the task list is in the initial comment.

Creating task lists

若要创建任务列表,请在列表项前加连字符和空格,后接 [ ]。 要将任务标记为完成,请使用 [x]

Tip: You cannot create task list items within closed issues or issues with linked pull requests.

Reordering tasks

You can reorder the items in a task list by clicking to the left of a task's checkbox, dragging the task to a new location, and dropping the task. You can reorder tasks across different lists in the same comment, but you can not reorder tasks across different comments.
