In the old and new editors, you can create a Confluence task by using the brackets together  which is a nice shortcut.
On the old editor, pressing the tab key would indent the task to make it a "subtask" of the task above. This does nothing on the new editor.
I've also submitted a support request for this and if it turns into a CONFCLOUD issue, I'll post that here so anyone else who wants this feature to carry over, you can add your vote.
Hi @John Tolle
Hope this is how you want to create tasks list in the new editor.
I managed to do it by following below steps.
Yes, and I've already commented on that issue as well, but it's still not been made clear to me whether or not that issue covers tasks as well or if it's only fixing bulleted and numbered lists indentation.
So, does that issue cover tasks, too, or not?
If so, it should probably be modified so it's completely obvious that it does (because the title and details of the issue do not mention tasks and all the images are about bulleted lists).
If not, then this needs a new issue created for it.
