Could you please explain this a bit more. I (and I'm sure others) don't actually know what you're asking, which means you're not going to easily get an answer.



Normally in each issue, we can see the list of all sub-tasks that under it, what we could see from the task is the summary and reporter. However I would like to see the "description" and "due date" of the sub-tasks. Is it possbile to do so?
