Hi Sarah, welcome to the Community. Note that I moved this question to the Confluence collection. If in fact this is a Jira question let me know and I can correct.

in Confluence there is a checkbox macro that looks like below. Would this work? If not what are your requirements?


Thank you Jack for the swift response. 
I have found it now and really appreciate the help.

@Sarah Loussaief Your question was posted quite some time ago. But I stumbled over it and we're building an app that allows you to add checklists to pages in Confluence cloud. As a macro. Or as a button. They can even be used in Jira or publicly with a link or with externals via a web portal.

It is much more versatile than the simple task lists in Confluence. It's repeatable as it works with templates. You can use a mobile app for iOS or Android.

And basically it's a way to make sure that both your technical and your business teams do not forget things that they should know of. I've written a blog post about why checklists rock for business teams here.

If you try it out and have questions, just ping me. And by the way: It's 100% free both in Confluence and Jira.
