Is there a way to attach a file to a checklist item on a Trello card?

I am finding that, often, when I am creating a checklist in a Trello card that I would like to attach a document or link that could help in handling that task. But so far, I don't think I can do that. I can only turn the task into a card, but then it isn't a subset of the step I made the original card for. 

TIA for tips or advice.

Hi Jan,

Did you receive an answer to your question? I would also like to add a photo to a checklist (not in the upper portion of the list). Thanks for any info!

I don't think it's possible.

Hi @Dianna Steinbach 👋

Just to follow-up on and add more detail to @wang_wzx's answer, you can use Markdown to link your checklist items to web pages. The format would look something like this:

[My dog Sally](URL of the page)

For documents, I'd upload the file to something like Dropbox or Google Drive, and then use the same syntax above while inserting the direct link to the file within the parentheses. 

You can give it a try and let us know if it works for you. :)

Thanks. Will try and let you know. 

First of all , you can attach a document or link, then creat a checklist , and add an `Markdown` format item linking to the attachment you’ve uploaded .
