I am new to JIRA. I'm the Windows admin for a team of developers. We want to add checklist functionality to JIRA (v5.2.11) and I installed the add-on ToDo list from Mail.Ru Group for that purpose. My problem is that there are no instructions and even after reindexing, I don't see any features in projects or the dashboard.
I know that this is a supported add-on but the vendor contact email firstname.lastname@example.org is not working (Error: 550 Message was not accepted -- invalid mailbox. Local mailbox email@example.com is unavailable: account is disabled) and I could find no information on the vendor site.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

The ToDo custom field should be one of the options available. Follow the steps to configure it and be sure to make it available in the correct scope (project and issue type) before it is visible on your issues.
