Add checklists to channels
Add the option for a right-sidebar checklist for channels.
Playbooks has nice checklists built in, but are more complicated than what is needed for simple task keeping. The request is to take just that checklist feature and have it as a stand-alone option for existing channels. This would allow general low-effort task management without having to run a playbook and create a new channel.
Playbooks are feature rich, and create new channels when run, this is not desired.
Boards are more complicated than what is needed and duplicate already-existing task management solutions that some organizations use. Additionally, the board tasks do not allow markdown hyperlinks in their name.
An additional nice-to-have feature would be the the option to expand the menu on a post (using the ellipse button) and have a button that creates a checklist item related to that post. Perhaps it would prompt the user for a task name and automatically link that checklist item to the post.
Being able to assign a user to a checklist task would be ideal as well.
This feature request is along the same lines as a previous request I had:
Alternatively, another option would be to allow a playbook to be opened on an existing channel so that the checklist can be used, rather than having a playbook run create a new channel.
