Add a checklist item

A checklist article only allows checklist items at the root level of the document. Checklist items will always be visible to the person reading the checklist article.

Add content below a checklist item

You can add content blocks below a checklist item the same as you would add content in a normal article. You can also add screenshots using the hotkey function--screenshots will be added below the checklist item that is selected.

The editor works the same in the desktop as in the web. The main difference will be that you can add new screenshots and annotate those screenshots using the desktop editor.

Great for when you want to include detailed instructions for specific checklist items.

Edit the Article on the Web

You can edit the article using the web editor. Here are instructions for using the web editor.

1. Click Edit on Web
