More details

Do you frequently encounter Jira Issues that require multiple things to be done, some of them buried in comments, but they don't quite qualify to be actual Jira subtasks? Wouldn't it be nice to get a good overview of the things that need to be done in an issue, and check them off as you make progress?

We had the same problem, so we created Simple Tasklists - a quick way to create lightweight tasks anywhere within Issues.

Easily add tasks from a convenient sidebar & through a new {task} macro.

Solve Tasks by simply clicking a checkbox. No need to edit an Issue.

Mark important tasks as mandatory, give them due dates, or apply labels to tasks to signal additional statuses.

Tasks are automatically rolled up into "My Tasks" and "Project Tasks".

Need repeatable tasks? Create a reusable template and use it anytime.

You can even add tasks automatically through the Jira Automation add-on, or prevent Issue transitions using our workflow conditions.

It also works with Service Desk and Jira Agile.
