Example: a task requires 5 sub-tasks. 2 sub-tasks occur in Sprint #1, and 3 sub-tasks will occur in the next Sprint #2. Can this be done? If so, how?
You can (and usually should if you have complex stories that different people need to do bits of it separately) split a story up into sub-tasks.
But sub-tasks belong to their parent stories. And sprints contain stories. So a sub-task belongs to a story which is dealt with in a sprint, and not the next one.
So, if you have sub-tasks to do in separate sprints, they drag the story with them. A sprint will contain the story, so sprint #1 will have the task and five sub-tasks. If you deal with the first two sub-tasks, then close the sprint, then the task and all five sub-tasks will go to sprint 2 (albeit with 2 closed sub-tasks).
