    Add simple tasks and checklists in your Issue Descriptions and Comments

    Add simple tasks and checklists in your Issue Descriptions and Comments

    Quick Task entry with a simple new macro

    Simply Click the Checkbox to mark a task as done

    Create Templates for reusable Tasklists

    Add Task items with an easy new {task} macro anywhere in Issue Descriptions and Comments.

    Checking a task automatically saves the checked state in JIRA, without having to edit the issue itself.

    Easily create Tasklist Templates for common and repeatable tasks. Add them to your Issues with a new {tasklist} macro.

    More details

    Do you ever run into lengthy JIRA Issues that have multiple steps that should be checked off as progress is made, but these individual steps don't quite qualify to be split into actual JIRA subtasks?

    Or do you encounter new todos and requirements in issues that should be tracked as a result of lengthy discussions?

    Yeah, we had the same problem, so we created Simple Tasklists - a quick way to create simple tasks within an Issue, right in the description or any comment.

    Use the new {task} macro like this - {task}try this plugin{task} and a checklist item is created and tracked in the sidebar of the Issue.

    Want it even quicker? Simply type /t and the macro will be inserted for you.

    Have some repeatable tasks? Create a Tasklist template and insert it via a new {tasklist} macro.

    Mark a Task as done by simply clicking a checkbox, no need to edit an Issue.

    Just in case you're worried we've also added a fancy condition you can enable to prevent Issue transitions if any open tasks are present.

    Very nice addon, thank you for it! But we've got a bug: it's impossible to add simple task while you working with issue on rapid board.

    Good addon, but some features are requred: * mail on tick task is not sent * it's really makes me crazy to create list using {task} macro every time, is it possible to make something like: ** {code}[_space_]{code} for not checked task ** {code}[+]{code} for checked task

    Very nice addon, which helps a lot in organizing all the little activities which are needed to perform our task release activities. Especially the user mentioning [~admin] is nice, however it would be even better if one could use assignee and reporter for that also, like [~assignee]

    Very nice add-on, quick creation of tasks ability to "tick" it when completed without having to edit... Just one setback noticed - it's bugged in both issue navigator (can't click on some tasks) and in dashboard gadgets when you use "watched issues" or "assigned to me" sort of gadgets which basicaly serve as filtered issue navigator. In these gadgets on dashboard (when you have tasks written down in description and you see the description column) you can easily mark or unmark the tasks, but that has no effect on issues - there it's still in the original state, no changes have been made. Same with refreshing the page - if u mark a task on dashboard gadget and refresh the page - it comes back to original (unmarked) state.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing tier?

    For JIRA Server 7.0 or later, the add-on tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications on your instance. For example, if you're running JIRA Software (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 50-user tier for add-ons.

    For versions of JIRA Server prior to 7.0, the add-on tier should match the licensed user tier for JIRA. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your JIRA license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

    • Purchase the add-on at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the add-on at the same tier.
