What is the proposed idea/solution?

Allow users to add a new record on another table through a linked field, when inside a form.

How does is solve the user problems?

Currently, in a form a user can select a record from a linked field, but they cannot create a new record through that linked field. This would be very helpful for instances when a new record needs to be added and you want to give that ability to the user.

How was this validated?

Not sure what "How was this validated" means... I found the issue because I wanted to create a new record from inside of a form, but I didn't have the ability to.

Who is the target audience?

I best solution I've seen is to create a separate form that's connected to the table you're trying to link to. Then put that form's URL in the description of the linked field on the initial form.
