In a Nutshell

The Checklist List screen is used to view and manage the checklists that are used in the mobile app by technicians, such as selecting the object and record with which to associate the checklist or determining whether the checklist is mandatory.

Additionally, the Checklist List screen can help you see important information about the checklist, such as whether it has been completed, by whom, and when.
