The to-do list features the ability to create check-box lists. The feature was already there but required you to create individual elements for the checkboxes in order. In MIUI 12, the app now makes a new list addition simply by hitting the enter button. This setting is available to toggle. So, if you would rather stick with the older implementation of check-boxes, you can always revert to that. The toggle for the same can be found under Settings/ To-Do quick entry.

As per a report by IT Home, this can be used to create task grouping and project management classification. The feature can also be used for quickly sorting things like travel items.
