Can I quickly create task within a story?

Is there a shortcut to quickly create tasks within a story?  It would be great if I could be looking at a story ticket and quickly create tasks that just required a title and would be automatically linked to that story?

 

Suggestions?

You can quickly create subtasks within the story with Plange Editor (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.moresimp.plangle.editor)

And there is very good Hierarchical Epic/Story/Sub-task representation too.

You can create subtasks under the story. Check out https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Creating+a+Sub-Task

ahhh sub-tasks are not an option for issue type in our project (just epic, story, task, bug & spec change).  I assume we should add sub-task as an option because that default parent/child functionality isn't possible with regular tasks? subtasks only?

 

Yes, that is correct. You can link stories with tasks but that wouldn't be hierarchical!
