Check boxes in Notes
I like Todoist a lot, one of the better apps in this area.
Instead of populating Todoist with lots and lots of check boxes, nested or otherwise, I would like to be able to insert a check box into a note.
I have a 'Project' called CHECKLISTS so that I can add things there when I think of them. Packing lists feature strongly because I travel a lot to developing countries.
I know one solution would be to set up such check box lists in Word or similar, but itwould be more efficient to have them available in notes.
This woudlextend the functionality of Todoist beyond tasks per se.

If you have a to-do list that you often re-use, you could create a template from it and each time you need to complete all these tasks, you could easily import it into a new project. It could also contain sub-tasks.
Please refer to this video to see how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Rl_CLGY_3o
If this is not a good solution for you, please clarify how would you use a task list within a task note so we can better understand this option and maybe implement it in future updates.

Nirvana also has this feature. I use it to track multiple steps within a task, such as watching tutorials in order to complete the task of learning a new product line. In this case it is more succinct than having 7 individual subtasks for seven tutorials, for instance.
It's also really handy to have a grocery or parts list right within a shopping task.
I hope this will be considered for a future update.
As Todist has checkboxes already for task completion, I would prefer checklists to be 'hidden' from all the tasks.
If one uses the current task setup for checklists, surely one is then increasing the number of total tasks still to be done., leading a a sense of overload.
Checklists can be more than just tasks, eg packing cabin and check-in bags is a task which has many items to be checked off, which is why I prefer them in Notes if they are to be in Todoist at all.
Grocery lists is a very good example.
For now I have reverted to using Evernote for my checklists.
