So you created a new application record from scratch, but it does not have an associated recommendation. We will show you how easily solve that problem.
After you log in go to your Recs page, make sure you are on the Records tab. Find the record you are looking for and click on the Action button related to it.
From the Action drop down click on Reverse Engineer. You will get a notification that your application was successfully reversed engineered into a recommendation, and if you go to your Recommendations tab you will see you it there labeled 'new'
