Will a Trello checklist pass an HR audit?

We currently use Sharepoint to store new employee checklists.  People from different departments have different responsibilities when someone new is hired.  I'm interested in moving that process to Trello.  Our initial idea was to create a Board for each new hire, cards for each department, and checklists on those cards to cover each responsibility.  

1. Can the contents of a checklist be edited by everyone who has access to the list?  I'd like to be able to lock down the description of each checklist item, but have other users be able to check off boxes for tasks that are complete.

2. Will an archived or exported Trello board meet audit requirements when we need to show due diligence in hiring processes?

3. Does anyone have a suggestion for a different approach?

Thanks for your questions!

1. Currently, anyone who's a member of a board will be able to make changes in the boards and edit its cards. Therefore, they will be able to change descriptions, add attachments, edit comments and checklists, etc. If you want to prevent any kind of edition on your boards, you can add people as Observers to your boards. 

2. We can't advise on that matter without knowing what the requirements are. You could reach out to support@trello.com so we can send you our security documents. Then, you'll be able to assess that with your lawyer team.
