  • You can add it by modifying your view. You can get it by "Completed" column in your view Commented Jun 15, 2016 at 8:39

It is the Completed column in a Tasks list that is displayed as the Checkbox.

If you, instead, see the Yes/No values it means the needed (SharePoint) JavaScript hierarchytaskslist.js was not executed on the ListView.

One scenario can be you have attached JSLinks on the WebPart, this prevents execution of any JS files attached to the View definition
As seen in the screenshot below of a standard Tasks list; all Views make that Completed column work until a JSLink is set on the WebPart

Solution is to add the hierarchytaskslist.js to the JSLinks of the WebPart
not done yet in the screenshot below

The https://365csi.nl/icsr/linkmanager/ helps with managing JSLinks , if you click 'or select a JavaScript file' on the WebPart row, you can add the required hierarchytaskslist.js with one click.
