Hi Saisurya, 

Unfortunately, the checkboxes will not be rendered, they'll be shown as brackets. There's an existing Feature request in our issue tracker, you can find it at 

You can vote on it to increase its popularity.

For future reference, you can also find a list of all the supported markdown here. 

Hope that helps!


Thanks for the reply; but please do consider this feature, ticket was created 6 years ago.

Being a commercial company, implementing such a simple feature should not take a long time

@Saisurya Kattamuri  this will be implemented in year 2119.

its already dec 15, 2019 :joy:

This would be a really nice feature.

I'd like to ask kindly, if this feature will be implemented within this century, as we are thinking about a broader use of bitbucket in our company and this feature request is one of the step stones.

This should be a feature in bitbucket. GitHub already allows it.  It makes PRs more meaningful for reviewers.

This feature is so important. Should support it soon...

Any workarounds or shortcuts?

You can use Create Task
