How can I have a special form when I create a subtask?

I have created some special forms tied to workflow. For example, when a QA subtask fails a test Issue, the user gets a special form that asks for some test information.

I would like to use a special form when a subtask is first created. I want to hide some fields that aren't needed on the form. But it appears in the workflow that I can't specify the form at create time.

I can uncheck the fields I don't want to see. But then they aren't checked if I am creating a parent Issue. And that is too manual any way.

Am I missing something?

You need to define a new screen for the creation of subtasks.

Thanks. Worked it out. But like much of the "scheme" stuff in JIRA, setting it up is somewhat less than intiuitive.

Thanks for pointime me in the right direction.
