I didn't find any documentation about that in anywhere. My personal setup which I use is prelude.

In the org-mode official documentation is pointed that:

Every item in a plain list1 (see Plain lists) can be made into a checkbox by starting it with the string [ ]. This feature is similar to TODO items (see TODO items), but is more lightweight. Checkboxes are not included in the global TODO list, so they are often great to split a task into a number of simple steps. Or you can use them in a shopping list. To toggle a checkbox, use C-c C-c, or use the mouse (thanks to Piotr Zielinski's org-mouse.el). Org-Mod Official Documentation Checkboxes

But on my setup this doesn't work, for any of mouse buttons (1, 2, 3). I expected that mouse-1 would work, but it doesn't toogle the checkboxes when I click it. Do I need to set some special keybinding? I see thatorg-mouse`is part of the standard extensions of Emacs... So I don't understand well how this works.

I found the answer on the file source -- I still think that this should be pointed on official docs of org-mode.

You need put (require 'org-mouse) on your init.el to enable this feature. If you don't desires reload your emacs, you just M-: (require 'org-mouse) RET M-x org-mode-restart RET.

Worked here.
