Task list – Markdown

Summary

Markdown:

- [ ] incomplete task
- [x] completed task

Details

To create a task list in Markdown, use a dash followed by a pair of square brackets, then the text for the task. If the task is done, you can place an x inside the square brackets. Note: task lists will only render properly on GitHub.
