Instant Subtasks?

Bart I'm New Here Oct 05, 2017

Hey all,

I've created a subtask template with a couple of standard subtasks that apply to all user stories. Is there a way to instantly assign these whenever a new user story is created?


Thanks in advance.

Hi Bart,

Can you clarify this?

Do you want to automatically create and assign sub-tasks anytime a user story is created? Or do you want to instantly assign manually created sub-tasks?

Hi Bart,

In case you are still working on this...

You can do this using the Power Scripts add-on.

There is a video tutorial walking you through in detail here.

Let me know if this is along the lines of what you are trying to do. Happy to help tweak if needed.

You will need to trigger this via a postfunction when the story is created.

I had a similar case and i used the create on transition add-on for this requirement

There might be other add-ons providing similar feature which can be used. one example is Jira workflow toolbox
