It is possible to add special formatting to text entered in a checklist item.

Markdown Syntax

Inserting HTML directly in an item is not permitted as it is a potential security risk. For this reason, Checklist supports a subset of markdown syntax to help you format your text. Allowed syntax are:

Emphasis

Put * around the text which you want to emphasize

Emphasize *important* aspects

Emphasis will be rendered as italic.

Strong Emphasis

Put ** around the text which you want to emphasize

Emphasize **important** aspects

Strong emphasis will be rendered as bold.

Hyperlink

You can write URL directly in the text and they will be converted into hyperlinks. However, you can also put a text instead of the link by using this syntax:

Follow the [return policy](http://www.company.com/return-policy)

User Mention

Checklist will recognize the @ symbol immediately followed by characters and apply a special formatting to it. For example:

Reviewed by architect @John

Would appear as

While there are no other logic than special formatting, Checklist plans to offer in the future a @ mention similar to the one in JIRA and where users would be emailed when they are mentioned in the item.

Date Formatting

Checklist will also recognize dates under the format DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD//YYYY and apply special formatting to it. For example:

Contact legal by 06/07/2016

Would appear as

Emoji

Checklist also support a list of emoticons that can be inserted directly in the item.
