Table relationship for creating new related record without a portal.

Post

 

I would like to create a table relationship that would create a new related record without a portal.  For example I have a user/task relationship.

User::ID -------<Tasks::Assigned to

I have a portal of tasks that have been created but to add a new one, I need a go to the last portal record which is usually too far down the list to be convenient.  I can also create a second portal that is filtered to show only the uncreated record.  

 

Portals in Popovers in footers do not proper display valuelists from filemaker go so I would like to create a table relationship for the new task.  Is this possible?  What is the best way?

I have been creating separate layout for this function and writing a lot of scripts to make this work but it would simplify things a lot to because i have the space on my layouts already(they are in a filtered portal that does not work on iPad.  )
