This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Tasklist Macro
Is this macro available on Confluence 6.0.0-OD-2016.10.0-1050 (Cloud version?).
It doesn't seem to have documentation in 6.0 and is not available as a plugin.
Adding individual tasks as you mention will allows you to add a task in edit mode, however, in previous versions you could add a task list and in view mode people could add/update/remove individual tasks.
The previous behaviour made pages more collaborative and simpler for users rather than requiring each user to edit the page.
