How to create a task list template?

Bogdan I'm New Here Jan 06, 2022

Hello, community!

I wondered if there is any best practice in creating a task list as a template?

The use case would be: as a PM, I want to have a list of repetitive tasks performed before a website goes live. I don't want to recreate the task list every time a website goes live. 

What is the best way of doing it with Jira and Confluence?

Many thanks!

In Jira you could use an automation rule to update the description field with canned text (e.g. bulleted list of tasks) whenever the issue is transitioned to a specific status. You could also use automation to create subtasks automatically.

Additionally, you could purchase Issue Checklist Pro and have a simple task list appear in each issue. I have used this application with automation to automatically generate a task list.

@Samuel, thank you for mentioning Issue Checklist Pro

@bogdanUGS, you can start with Issue Checklist Free and upgrade to Pro only when you need it. 

You will get something like below in your Jira issue:


You can create templates and load them to issue with just a few clicks.

Hi @bogdanUGS 

Using Confluence is enough for this requirement.

Create templates that will have a pre-filled list of tasks that you need to carry out.

If you need to track the list of activities in Jira, right when you create a page in Confluence, you have an option to create the Issue from Confluence, there is no template for this, you need to manually do this by selecting text and then creating an issue.
