How can I create a pull request task without creating a comment first?

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.

If you highlight the comment and then click "Create Task" the task will be auto populated with your selection, which sounds like about what you want.

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.

While not ideal, another workaround for not being able to add tasks without a comment, is to just add a generic comment e.g"Tasks" and under that comment add as many tasks as you like, without having to also add comments for each task.
