Issue/Introduction

If the user selects an 'Activity' type task a red toaster error message appears indicating an invalid value. 

The lookup should only display 'Phase' type tasks.

If you go to Classic, the 'Current Phase' field correctly shows only the 'Phase' type tasks. 

Steps to Reproduce: 

1. Create a Project WBS Task list with some Phases, Activities and Tasks hierarchy 

Phase 1  

Activity 10  

Task A 

Task B  

Activity 11 

Task C

Activity 111

Task D 

Phase 2 

Activity 20 

Task AA

Task BB

Activity 21 

Task CC 

Task DD 

2. Go to the STATUS Module 

3. Configure the layout to include the 'Current Phase' field 

4. Click into the field to see a list of Current Phases 

Expected Result: To see a list of Phases for this current project. 

Actual Result: I see a list of Phases and Activities. If I pick an Activity the application appropriately shows a red toaster error message.
