Click on Add Task does not create a new Service Case



In a single click on Add Task, does not create a new Service Case in an interaction within the CPM Interaction Portal.

The left panel has the 'Add Task' which shows a menu with the list of service cases. User tries to create any service case by doing a single click (selecting it) and then click on 'Add tasks' button at the bottom of the menu.
It does nothing and just closes the menu. 
Whereas the double click of Service task works fine and the service case is created.
