Hello @Becky Broderick
What do you mean by "create a checklist"? Are you talking about creating a set of issues that your users "check off" as they are completed? Are you talking about a custom field that is a set of check boxes?
In native Jira, standard users cannot make custom fields that are checkboxes, nor add check box type of structures to existing text fields. A Jira Administrator can create custom fields that are sets of checkboxes. An internet search for "jira cloud checklist" brings up several 3rd party apps that can add checklists features to Jira. I don't know to whom the permissions in those apps are allocated because I have not used any of them before.
Do you have a third party app of some sort that has already enabled checklist functionality in your instance?
Hi @Becky Broderick,
From what I can see, you use the Issue Checklist app provided by my team.
By default, all users that can edit the issue can also add checklist items and work on them.
It is possible to customize the permissions in the Pro version: https://herocoders.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/IC/pages/688554010/Permissions+settings
Let us know if that helps.
