Great add-in, wish it was configurable by tacker.

  by Maxim Krušina 10 months ago

Cannot live without this!

  by Boon Hean Low 11 months ago

Great plugin. I can't get my non-admin users to use it initially, but realise that you have to grant them permission to do that. All other users, if you have the same problem, check out the role's permission!

  by Wei Ren 11 months ago

Installed this plugin on Redmine 3.2.0-stable. I could see the checklist when I created an issue but failed to add any item. According to the plugin official website, it is not compatible with 3.2, which contradicts with the claim here.

  by Lawrence Law 11 months ago

Screwed up my Bitnami Redmine v3.2.1.
After installed and added a new checklist, Redmine showed screen saying something went wrong.

  by Evgeny Efimenko 11 months ago

Non-admin accounts can't see, therefore use checklist in tasks. Is it bug or feature?

  by jacky hwj about 1 year ago

  by Entwicklung AMIT about 1 year ago

Very good easy to use plugin.
But there is one essential bug:
If there is an issue with subissues containing checklists, checklists of subissues are NOT copied while coping the master issue!

  by Eugene Evdokimov about 1 year ago

Handy plugin. But there is no history integration in the last version (3.1.3) for the Redmine 3.2.0.stable

  by Serg Pr000fff over 1 year ago

Nice plugin, but in Redmine version 3.2.0.stable redmine_checklists 3.1.3 the progress bar is not changing and there is nothing in history after save

  by stella fredo over 1 year ago

One of the most useful PlugIns - btw: very Quick and friendly Support!

  by Ricard F about 2 years ago

Very useful pluging, the problem is that when copying multiple issues with checklists at the same time they are not copied :(!

  by Dmitry Kabanov about 2 years ago

  by Stanislas Dourdin about 2 years ago

Nice plugin. Does its job.

  by Rhiino Rex over 2 years ago

It is better if it can include the checklist details in each of the email notification (similar as description).

Useful little addition for some tasks which require a well defined set of steps. Such a simple idea but so convenient.

  by Alex Alex over 2 years ago

  by Anton Jakimovic over 2 years ago

Great plugin.
1. Needs to view current checklist status at issue PDF export
2. After check-list update should send changes only. Not raw data.

  by Kamil Franckiewicz almost 3 years ago

Very useful plugin. Will be better if those rows in the future will be edited by ajax.

  by Michael Sanders almost 3 years ago

Awesome plugin. Is there a way to delete the history? If people accidentally check these checkboxes, you can have a lot of unnecessary issue history.
