Create tasks from Relationships
Relationships nowadays just allow to select tasks previously created. It would be nice if we coud add a new task directly on related list through Relationships.

Have a big need for this. I'm using relationships between tasks to create transparency between tasks that are not hierarchically related but rather from separate lists.
For example, I'm creating relationships between <Solution Ideas> we have and the <Assumptions> underpinning them, which in turn are related to <Experiment tasks>.
Currently when I want to note the <Assumptions> for a given solution idea, I have to have two ClickUp windows open on each task list, create the <Assumptions> in the Assumptions list and then switch windows to set up the relationship to the <Solution Idea>.
It would be great to just be able to create a new task in the <Assumptions> list from the <Solution Idea> I'm working on.
Chris Hahn: this. exactly this
I also want this feature. Adding related information in this way is pretty standard for CRMs.

I was able to do this in the past. Now we are not. I think this is a bug
Agree. In our organisation, each team has their own space with their own task statuses/lifecycles. If it just a simple job where you need involvement from another team, in most cases a sub-task assigned to that team will suffice. Apart from the politics of dumping jobs in another teams bucket.....this works.
However in much larger projects, we want the project manager to 'own' the main task and be able to during project meetings, to 'create' related tasks in another teams' space from within that project task.
These new tasks appear in the other teams' list for them to progress through whatever lifecycle that team needs it to do, but the project manager has overview of that related task from their project.
To date, we have over come this by first creating all the 'related' tasks and then going back into the project task and setting up the relationships but when the number of related tasks is large, it can be easy to miss one when doing it this way.
Solution: Add Relationship -> New Task
