How can I auto populate the Epic field, or at least see it during Task creation?

Hey Community,


When creating a new Task, I do not see the "Epic" field.


I would love to be able to see it during Task creation; I would also like to auto populate it to a specific Epic. How might I achieve this?


Note: I was able to do this easily with "Labels", but "Epic" seems unsupported.


Thank you,
