Can you add a personal task in a comment field?

I want to be able to use "Insert Task" or [ ] to be able to add tasks to my personal task list as they arise in various comments. Is there a way to do this? Thx

Yes, thanks for responding. I just want to be able to enter my personal tasks into the new Task page without having to create them on a separate page. It's frustrating that I can't just type up a simple task on the Task list. Ben

Is this feature in the Confluence roadmap? It would be create to assign tasks directly from the comments.

Hi Ben,

I believe you're talking about tasks in Confluence correct?
As far as I know, this is not possible. So we recommend you to create another task on a subpage, and then link it on a comment for the main page.

We have the same idea. Any updates to this issue or was even a feature request raised?
