One of my fields is a link to another table. I’d like end-users who are using the Form to add data to be able to create new records in the linked table but from the primary table data entry form.

@Airtable, all you need to do is make the “add” button link to a form on the child table, and return to the parent form on submit with the new record in place.
People have been asking for this for 4 years and without it, may as well go back to spreadsheets.

We’ve added a new feature to our extension that allows you to add line items in the form and automatically link them to the record being created.
