Because of how pull request comments work, we create a lot of tasks to keep track of our pull request comments. Is it possible to create a task without first creating a comment? It'd be nice if you could. If not, it would be nice if there was a single button you could click or a keyboard shortcut to auto-create a task based on the comment. Retyping the comment as the task description or selecting the comment prior to creating the task is an unnecessary extra step in a lot of cases.
Currently tasks are tied to a comment, and there's no way to create a task without it being attached to a comment. This isn't just a UI restriction, the data model for tasks currently requires a task to have a comment.
There is an existing open feature suggestion for allowing creation of a task without a comment (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BSERV-5233) however at this stage as far as I am aware adding this feature is not on our roadmap.
Your best bet is to vote on and watch that issue to indicate your interest, and be notified if this feature is implemented in future.
