I'm trying to create a task list for myself in a private chat with my supervisor on Slack. I'm pretty familiar with markdown, and I thought that Slack supported it too. On GitHub, you can create tasks lists by writing something like this.
- [ ] uncompleted task - [x] completed task
I thought Slack supported checklists like that too, especially since there are references to "checklist formatting", for example
- https://www.kosmotime.com/slack-task-management/: Use Slack’s built in features: Create a post with checklist formatting.
- https://slack.com/intl/en-de/help/articles/224766507-To-do-lists-in-Slack-: For a traditional to-do list, you can create a post with checklist formatting.
Nowhere can I find any information on how that "checklist formatting" is done. When I search for "slack checklist formatting" on your favorite search engine, all I get is generic articles on how to format posts, that don't mention anything about checklists. When I try the GitHub formatting, it doesn't show up as actual checkboxes.
Please send help.
