Automatically populating task details from the parent record

You can create a task using an existing task template, or add an ad hoc task to a record. For Work Orders, Change records, and Incident records, the Summary and Priority information on the task is pre-populated with the values of the parent record.

Additionally, you can also copy the categorization information from the parent record.
