I work on multiple projects, and for a common overview of my Work Items I use Cross Project Queries.

Now the problem is, if I create a new Work Item (within that Querie view), per default the Work Item "Area" and "Iteration" is the one from the current project. In the drop-down menu of "Area" and "Iteration" within the task creation window, the other projects are not listed and can't be searched.

Currently, I have to manually switch to the related project, to create the WIT, or "Move to Team project,... " after creating the WIT in the wrong project.

I am the Organization Owner so it should not be a permission problem. I am also part of every team in every project.

Does anybody know if I missed something, or is this feature just not implemented in the Task Creation (only afterwards via three dots, "Move to Team project,... ").

This feature is currently unavailable. You will have to use the "Move to Team project" option.
