Move story and its tasks to sprint

Hi, new user here!

When assigning a story to a sprint, I noticed it does not move the story's tasks - so I must move them manually, one by one.

How do I move a story and its tasks as a group?

I'm Sergey from the Youtrack team. 

You can see an example of how you can implement this automatically in our instruction for Epic board: 

In your case, though, it can just be User story → Tasks. The implementation will be similar. 

That's the best approach if you want to add issues to the board automatically. 

I hope this helps.

As a follow-up, you can also just add a bunch of tasks to the board using a command line with the following syntax: add Board <board name> <sprint name>. Please see the video example: 

This one works great when you add issues to the board manually. 

Hope this helps!
