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.
To create a task list, preface list items with a regular space character followed by
[ ]. To mark a task as complete, use
- [x] #739 - [ ] https://github.com/octo-org/octo-repo/issues/740 - [ ] Add delight to the experience when all tasks are complete :tada:
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.
Any issues that are referenced in a task list specify that they are tracked by the issue that contains the task list. To navigate to the tracking issue from the tracked issue, click on the tracking issue number in the Tracked in section next to the issue status.
