Hi @kiranmai genkolla 

Are you on Cloud or Server?

How do you want to copy the fields from parent to sub task? When  the parent is transitioned or updated  or when sub task is created?

Use this script to get started and modify further as per your needs.

Share your script, let us try to make it work.
