    You can do it by using Globiflow which is an extension for Podio. It takes some time to get know this tool but in my option it is time well spent as it opens up a lot of doors in relation to what you can do with Podio.

    For your case you could do the following:

    Add text fields within your projects items which are used for the Task input. Then use a category field as a trigger (eg. "Create task")for a Globiflow-create-flow which can grab the text values and create a new item in the Tasks app once you activate the flow via the category field.

    Hey David, thanks for the suggestion. Does sound like a nifty workaround, but I really don't fancy subscribing to the service just for achieving one objective...

    P/s: I did try out Globiflow before. Podio should consider acquiring them...

    I agree that one objective is too little. But once you get to know the tool I think you are likely to find more. Don't know if you can do the trick with Podio's own workflows?

    Hi Dean,

    we have the same limitations and also would love Podio to improve here.

    To have some comfort I introduced a calculated field called "actions" and there create custom links to easily navigate to new child forms. So in your example at the project you could have calculacted links to easily jump to the "new action" form.

    What we also think should be achieved is that we do not have to select the parent reference in the new item (so in your example the project should be prefilled when you selected "new action").
    My approach was to append query parameters in the "new action" link. But this is not supported yet, see my request at https://help.podio.com/hc/communities/public/questions/200906227-Pre-filling-New-Item-form and maybe upvote ít :)

    If we keep asking, maybe features will be implemented sometime.

    Andreas

    Has Podio ever come up with a good solution for this?  I have Globi Flow, but it has a limited number of actions, and I hate to use them on things that seem should be easy to accomplish.
