I would like the ability to write checklists in Kanban-cards AND assign tasks in the checklists to members of the team.

I think this feature will be helpful for our team too. Meanwhile, I’ll try to see if there is an alternative way to use a checklist inside a card.

This really is an essential feature for us to be able to use Miro to track and allocate workflow.

To add, lists that can be saved as templates.

This would really help my team adopt the Kanban framework. I would settle for the the ability to use more markup language tools in the cards, I thing the ability to add checklists would really knock it out of the park. 

Thanks!

We are used to having multiple checklists in Trello when using Kanbans.:grin:

Many times a card is too much for small, quick lists.  A Checklist will fill that gap.  Even as standalone and not in a Card.  I know there is the one in the Notes sections, which is great, however the ability to drop a Checklist anywhere on any Frame would elevate Miro to the next level, even a way to see an overview of Checklists similar to Cards and Frames.

This would definitely be super helpful. 

I think a good initial implementation would be the markdown implementation, i.e. 

 

- [ ] 

creates a checkbox. 

 

Being able to assign individual list items to folks would be a v2 as there would already be workarounds.

My ask would be that the card cover would show the total checked of all checkboxes, e.g., two lists with three items in each = 6 boxes, with 1 checked in each would show the following on the card cover: 2/6

If it helps someone, in the lesser known feature called Visual Notes, you can add a To do list with checkboxes from Visual Notes Templates:

 

One unfortunate limitation at the moment is that you can only add one template object per board. However, you can bypass this by opening another board that does not have a visual notes pane template object, create one, and then copy-paste it into another board.
