Creating New Entry For Option in Form View?

Does anyone know if it's possible to create a new entry within form view when selecting an option from a Linked field?

For example, I'd like to use a form view to enter information about a new proposed project.  One of my fields there is a linked field with every record in a separate tab of companies we have worked with.  Ideally, I'd like to create a new company directly from the form view of creating the new project proposal if required.  But I'm imagining perhaps I can't.

Correct, you cannot create a new linked record field directly from an Airtable form. There are workarounds, such as having a single line text field for data entry when the desired linked record does not yet exist, then have an automation create the linked record based on the info in the single line text field.
