numbering tasks

Does your system automatically assign numbers to every task?

Could you describe your requirement in more detail? What system are you referring too?

Indeed it does.

Well, that's just a guess but every system, at least every computerised system that I've ever played with that stores anything that could be consider a "task" also happens to be pretty darn good at "automatically assigning numbers to every task". At least in some sense.

If you're talking about Jira, then it certainly does and you can use those numbers to refer to tasks within a specific project.

I'd like to revisit this post.  The company I work for uses Confluence to document deployments for applications.

I need the ability to have a task box (completed or not) AND numbering so we know where we are in the workflow.

I cannot get both of these to coexist on the same line.  I can do either the task box OR numbering but not both.

I also tried setting up a two column table.  column1 would have the check boxes.  column2 would have the numbered list.

This didn't work either and in column1 I could only create one check box.

If this isn't on someone's radar to fix, can it please be added?  An approximate release date would be helpful as well.



I worked around this problem by creating a table and putting my content within it, row by row.  Within the table is a gear icon and has the choice to create numbering within the first column of the table.

It would be nice if the ability to have numbering and a task icon were allowed to coexist, though.  Creating the table and copy/pasting each line into a row is tedious.
