I'd like to ask a new feature in Comments of Issue Pages.
What I want to have is a Simple Check List feature in comments. Very simple one is enough. I don't require too much.
The feature would look like, for example, a check box that can be checked and unchecked. In html, it would look like the following code.
<input type="checkbox">Maintenance Documents<br/> <input type="checkbox">Announce the Release<br/> <input type="checkbox">Send Release Request<br/>
Then, when user check on the checkbox on the comment, the comment will be updated as the item on the check list is checked. Speaking in html, it would be updated as below.
<input type="checkbox" checked>Maintenance Documents<br/> <input type="checkbox">Announce the Release<br/> <input type="checkbox">Send Release Request<br/>
How's it? I think it is pretty much easy to implement.
To use icons available now is one way to do it (e.g. ), but I'm just too lazy to open edit and find the edit point only in order to update one item in a check list.
Again, I don't require too much. I don't require any integration with other functionality in JIRA. Just I'd like to have a simple check list that looks nice and is easy to update.
Hope you would take it positively.
Standard check-box Field is too much for my use case. My company consists of many teams but our JIRA administrators does not like to have Issue Type for each team. This seems for keeping the development process standardize to some extent. Therefore, adding field could annoy people in the other teams, and thus not easy to be accepted to do so by the administrators.
That's why I emphasized on Simplicity. We're requiring simple, flexible, temporal use of check-box which would be just a part of a single comment.
Ok, but I'd still say checkboxes in comments are pretty useless. Creating a simple table with the notation is just as useful and already works, so I very much doubt you'll ever see Atlassian add them to comments. You could raise it at https://jira.atlassian.com and see what they say.
