Add check boxes to Jira Issue

Is it possible to add check boxes in a typing field of a Jira issue. For example, my team wants to be able to have check boxes within the description of an Issue to keep track of the small items they need to complete to complete that issue.

I do not think it is possible and it would be amazing to add as a feature!

You can read about how to add this option in this discussion 

As for my team, we have recently begun to use one app from the marketplace.

I mean for this purpose "Sub-Tasks" are best.

You can create sub-tasks and assign to individual users to fullfil parent.

On the parent Workflow select a transition to DONE or RESOVED or CLOSES (Green Color)

  1. Select a transition (e.g. Resolve) and click Conditions.
  2. Click Add condition.
  3. Select the Sub-task Blocking Condition and click Add.
  4. Select the sub-task statuses (e.g. Done, Resolved) and click Add

Please check this case too
