Creating Custom Content Checklist

 

Once you create your custom checklist and assign it to a step, the user will see a checkbox for each checklist item. The user has to check those items before they can sign off. The plugin records their actions and those actions are available in the workflow history. So, you can backtrack on when an item was checked and by whom.
