Checklist for SharePoint

Hello Experts,

I'm new to SharePoint and would like to create a 'checklist' web part.  Basically I would like to be able to input a set of questions (as the admin), and allow users to upload the document needed for that question.  I would like these files to be stored in a document library so they are accessible to all our employees.  

Please Help...

You can create a checklist with a Custom List in Datasheet View. Your "Check" column will be a column that is of type "Yes/No". Once you add any row, you can click in attachment field and add multiple documents. Users can click to check off an item as well. See the example below.
Doing what janice suggests works great, but it also gives people the possibility to change the question itself.
If you don't want people to be able to do that, you need to:
- Create a custom list with all your questions in the title field (row by row)
- Create a document library with a lookup field pointing to the title field of your custom list
- Change the view of the document library to group by the lookup field

That way you will have a list of all the questions from your list that have documents attached to it and a + sign in front of them.
Clicking on the + will show all the documents that are connected to that question.
