How to automatically add date when using a checkbox

We have a page used to track if tasks are done and when.

Currently we use // and select the date which takes more time than we'd like.

Is it possible to have something like a checkbox that automatically populates the date it was checked?

Currently that is not possible, but once automations is added to Confluence you might be able to do that. The last I heard was that automation should be available by end of the year, but that might change.

Hello David, 

As a workaround here I can suggest our Handy Macros for Confluence. You can track your tasks adding Handy Date and Handy Status once you create the task description. Please see the screenshots below to see how it can be implemented.
