I am planning to remove some fields in a subtask and replacing them with fields from the parent task. Is there anything I need to be aware of before I do this?
Also, is there a way I can do this in the background without the changes being effective immediately? I don't want to restrict the users from using the system.
Hi there Michelle
Be sure not to remove required fields or fields somehow needed in the workflow. But aside from that I can't think of any things to be aware of.

Sadly there is no way to edit Screens without having the change be in effect immediately. As soon you remove or add a field the change is saved.
Not exactly you are asking but I wanted to add that incase it may help you to implement what you are trying to do. There are some add-ons provide "Parent issue field/value" type of custom fields. They are used to show readonly value of a selected field of parent issue on a subtask. Using one of these add-ons may allow you to use both fields at the same time during your update.
