    • Our product teams collect and evaluate feedback from a number of different sources. To learn more about how we use customer feedback in the planning process, check out our new feature policy.

      As a Jira user I should be able to manage a simple checklist for a task, so that I can organise my own work without the overkill of opening n sub-tasks and assigning them to myself or installing a Jira plugin.

      In the old Jira issue view the markdown parser includes support for check marks  and   These gave an instant visual queue to the progress of a task of many steps without the bloat of managing sub-tasks.

      These do not work in the new Issue navigator and are rendered as plain text . There is no alternative documented in the new markdown documentation.

      Please add this to the new markdown parser as it enables users to continue making use of an existing feature.
