I recently read this response regarding only adding sub-tasks to a sprint (without adding the story):
Subtasks: At the moment subtasks are not shown in the Plan mode, so there is no way for them to enter a Sprint and appear on the work tab. We plan on addressing this shortly.
Has this new feature been given a release date? And if so, when?
Thanks in advance
Sorry, to clarify my comment, there was no way for a subtask to be in a Sprint at all. You can now edit subtasks on the detail tab for an issue and they will automatically be in the same Sprint as their parent issue.
We do not plan on allowing subtasks to enter a Sprint without their parent.
May be you should post this as a new question. Anyway, IMHO, if you are having so many sub-tasks under a story, it is high that you think about splitting the story. The scope of the story seems to be too big. Every sprint team should be able to finish 3-4 stories.
I have the same problem. If I had to split out every sub-task in a story into a new story we would be swamped with stories. Since a story is so high-level and narrative, it could result in many sub-tasks that touch different components in a system.
Please can we add sub-tasks into Sprints!
