How can I set the checklist task action to direct the user to a dynamic URL?

You can do that by opening the Task editor. Enter the URL along with an attribute chosen from the drop-down menu. 

Here's an example. 

You want to direct the user to a certain page depending on the subdomain the user is acting on. Assuming your relative URL is “/X/Y,” you can use the parameter host name chosen from the drop-down menu before the relative path.

A user completes all checklist tasks. Later, I add a new task which the user has not seen. Does the checklist beacon reappear?

The answer depends on the specified Checklist Dismissal settings.

  • If settings are set to Keep triggering until all tasks are completed, and the new task is added after completion, then the checklist will not reappear. 
  • If Frequency is set to Keep triggering until manually dismissed by user, then the new task will normally show until the user dismisses the checklist.

What happens when a checklist is dismissed by a user?

Once dismissed by a user, a checklist won’t reappear unless it is re-triggered using manual retriggering.
