How to add task to the running sprint automatically?


In Jira 6 + rpidboards we use type task to place some sprint tasks into sprint taht are not about any particular story.

So when creating those they by default appear out of running sprint and we have to drag-n-drop them in plan mode into it.

The issue that team members raise them and forget to drag and drop and we miss or tasks.

How Jira could be configured so that they appear in the running sprint upon creation?
