Checklist in task cards



Anyone know how to make a checklist in a task? They have this function in Trello.


Hi @Egil_Arntzen

The best way I can think of doing it is to use subtasks. You won’t get the % completed, but aside from that it’ll look and function the same way.


No! Subtasks is not the solutuion! In one task can be 20-30 checkboxes, if you use sub-tacks then this spoils the overall picture of the status of the project.


@timgaisin Not sure if I get your point…? You mean the subtasks take to much space in the project?


I mean that the subtask has a significant weight in comparison with the checklist.
If I put the project to the dashboard, the statistics for the completed and unsuccessful tasks will be incorrect.

If it were added to the asanas the possibility of forming checklists inside the task would be convenient.


It would be so great if Asana could add a real checklist feature to use in projects. A lot of times my team will have simple to-do list items that don’t justify creating new subtasks. Having a simple checklist that I can view within a larger project is thus pretty critical.

Trello definitely has something similar to this which works well. My team is also looking at ClickUp, which will let you create checklists directly in tasks and template them for later use.

Please let us know if we can expect a checklist feature in Asana soon :slight_smile:


+1 for checklists please Asana team :slight_smile:
