- Yes (current behavior)
- No (only children items get checkboxes)
- Toggleable between the two above behaviors with an option
Can I suggest two other poll options?
c. A new user setting / preference.
d. An extra keyboard shortcut / hamburger menu item:
Added option c.
These two behaviors are not different enough to become two menu options in my opinion though. Got any use cases in mind where a user wants to use both of these at the same time?
None use case comes to my mind.
In fact I tend to prefer maximum flexibility in general from a user point of view, although I know this results in greater difficulties to design a good UX and to test things.
I would actually prefer to have the parent node not appear as a check box. some how it visually throws off the look of an outline.
However, I can say that it is useful at times to have it as a checkbox for those time when you do complete all the sub tasks. So Ideally, it would be nice to be able to toggle this on and off.
Yeah, I agree.
The behavior has existed since the beginning of Dynalist though, so somehow I must have gotten familiar with it in a weird way
This isn’t part of the current poll, but my wish is to be able make a parent item that has a checkbox with out the children all getting checkboxes. I’ve taken to using highlight colors instead of checkboxes because of this issue.
@Alan this is interesting and well stated. I think it reflects that just having more ability to customize the checklist is nice. I also like the idea of having non checkable items below a checkable parent node.
I do have to say I like the current mode as a “Default” for the creation of new checklists, but then the ability to toggle each node independently of the parent node would provide the most flexibility.
Is this feature planned?
It seems that the poll was very conclusive on not maintaining the current behavior.
