I love check boxes and keyboard shortcuts.
I often write hierarchies of boxes for subtasks, and check the sub-tasks I completed.
I would like to be able to do this while editing their content, with a keyboard shortcut or editor automation.
How can I do it?
In JIRA, you can use the tab button to move through fields until you highlight the checkbox, then you can use spacebar to check/uncheck.
See: https://i.giphy.com/3o7TKTAOAf1mUo4gTe.gif for an example of this in action.
Hope this helps.
**Edited answer to make clear this works for JIRA, but is not the answer for Confluence**
The task list checkbox is not part of the tab flow in View mode, and it can't be selected/highlighted in Edit mode.
Therefore unfortunately there are no keyboard shortcuts for checking or unchecking a Confluence task list item, either in View mode or in Edit mode.
I have a question actually, not sure this is the right forum but here goes:
In JIRA Portfolio we have a schedule. We update the Schedule, Commit the change and subsequently the associated Jira ticket gets updated. What about the reverse, i.e. we log work against a Jira ticket and let's say that ticket is now completed. Does Portfolio in turn now automatically get updated as well?
Sam's right, but I've got a Portfolio guru sat a short distance away, and he says that yes, it works both ways automatically. As he put it: "It wouldn't be much use if it didn't."
You should still post this in a JIRA/Portfolio forum for more detailed feedback though.
