How do I Easily change a Subtask to a Task and vice versa

Is there an easy way (button or checkbox) to change a task to a subtask or change a subtask to a task without  manually copying/deleting and creating a new one?

Hi Victor,

To change a sub-task to a task you can select the menu option (...) on the top right and select the option *Convert to Issue*. This will automatically let you convert the sub-task to another issue type of your choice.

Also, if you want to convert a task to a sub-task, you need to perform the same step above and select Convert to sub-task

However, it is important to note that, to be able to convert a task to a sub-task, the task can't have any sub-task within it, because you can't convert a task to a sub-task and let a group of sub-tasks without a parent task, does it make sense?

Please let me know if it helps.
