This allows for the easy creation of checklists from a page template.

How do I create a new checklist in a page template?

There are a few ways to create a new checklist with our Didit checklist app. It just depends on your initial point. For instance, you can generate checklists from the Didit hub, a Jira Issue, a Confluence page, and many more. Find a detailed list of different starting points for your checklist creation below.

Let’s look at how to create a checklist in a Confluence page.

How to embed a checklist template on a Confluence page template to generate a new checklist every time you use the page template

1. Navigate to the global template settings (requires Confluence admin permission).

2. Create a new template or select to edit an existing one.

3. If you create a new template, be sure to give your template a title. Either way, locate the part of the page you would like to add the checklist and type "/" to bring up the macro browser. You can also use the "+" symbol in the Confluence editor toolbar.

4. Start typing "Didit" to pull up the "Didit checklist" macro and press enter.

5. To create a checklist from a template, click the "..." in the top right of the macro editor and choose "Replace with template."

6. Choose your template and give it a new name if necessary.

7. Your checklist macro will show on the Confluence template editor now. You can save your page if you are finished editing.

8. Create a new page using the template you edited and voila! Your checklist template will show on the page.
