I understand that this plugin is to replace the need for sub-tasks. However I have some sub-tasks that I would like to essentially add another level to and this checklist plugin would be ideal.
Hi Chris: There is an add-on that cost $75 – I have never used it but it is available to you. Hope this is helpful.
Checklist allows you to simplify your workflow via the creations of To Do lists directly in a JIRA issue. With its built-in statuses, Checklist saves you from the complexity of using sub-tasks to track what is important to you and your business.
Checklists are not there to "replace subtasks" - a checklist is a list of things to tick off. A sub-task is a piece of work that helps you break down an issue so that it can be assigned to different people and/or represented as a discrete chunk of effort. There are cases where people use subtasks as though they are a checklist of course.
Think of a holiday - contents of your suitcase would be best handled with a checklist, but they're useless for the book taxi, flights, hotel etc, when those are to be done by different people - that's clearly subtasks.
Anyway, the checklist fields are just fields, like any other custom field in JIRA - you can therefore use them on any issue type, and you do it the same way - add the fields, put them on screens.
To go back to the holiday analogy - you might have a subtask for each person going of "pack". And each of those includes a checklist of things to remind them to include.
