Special Formatting

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 that you want to emphasize

Emphasis is rendered as italic.

Strong Emphasis

Put ** around the text that you want to emphasize

Strong emphasis is rendered as bold.

Hyperlink

Write URL directly in the text. URLs are converted into hyperlinks. However, you can also put a text instead of the link by using this syntax:

Jira Issue Link

Checklist recognizes any issue key that follows the Jira's standard. So

Fix issue PROJECT-10

will appear as

User Mention

Checklist recognizes the @ symbol that is immediately followed by characters and apply a special formatting to it. For example:

appears as:

Date Formatting

Checklist recognizes dates in the format: DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD//YYYY and apply special formatting to it. For example:

appears as:

Emoji

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