Have you provided in Id for the WhatId field of Task during creating on new Task records ? If not then please provide a Id for this field to populated Related To field.
Sorry I don't understand, could you explain more the steps I have to do?

While creating a task in workflow rule, system asks you for the related to field.
It could be a user, Role, Owner.

Let me know in case you want more info.

Hi Rohit,

When we create a task from a Workflow task, the field proposed is Assigned To but not related To, It is WhatId field, not WhoId or OwnerID.
Why I need this, because when my survey is created in my org, If the contact answers badly, we send a task to the Account Owner to call him and we would like to have in the related To field(WhatId) the Id of the related Survey.
Hope this is clear enough, if not just tell me.
Thank you.
"Related to" gets auto-assiged to the object which has initiated the workflow rule.

In your case, the related to will be Survey record. I dont think that a task can be related to Lead or Contact.
