When Discourse is used for meeting minutes, one can imagine posts including lists of action items. I’m wondering what a good Discourse-y way of handling those might be - one that facilitates reporting on work that’s been completed (work that, let’s say, is too small-scale to merit the creation of a JIRA story).
If action items are just included as Markdown bullet lists, the temptation would be to select the text of a completed action and reply to it with “Done”. I fear that this might run afoul of the too-few-words rule, but I haven’t tried it.
If the original post were made a wiki and there were a checkbox macro available (is there?) it might be possible to have this “just work” by checking checkboxes. It looks like there was once at least one Discourse plugin for checkboxes, but it seems to have fallen into disrepair.
I have to confess some fondness for the Confluence action-item support. It’s so easy to use and works quite elegantly.
