Manage checklist items on cards

The highlighted information on this page refers to functionality not yet generally available. It is available only in the Preview Sandbox environment.

Using a checklist on a card allows you to break down work into smaller increments or add notes to the card. Checklist items are available on both ad hoc and connected cards.

NOTE

When you create a checklist item on a connected card, a subtask is added to the connected Workfront task. Checklist items on issues are not connected to any Workfront objects.

The checklist item connection to subtasks is available only via the early feature opt-in. For details, see Early feature opt-in for Adobe Workfront Boards.

For information on cards, see Add an ad hoc card to a board, Use connected cards on boards, and Manage cards.
