When expanding a user to see the user's tasks on the Team Status page, sometimes projects are listed under the user instead of just tasks. In order to view tasks, you must expand the project name.
If you do not have the option selected to show items from child projects, then it shows only the tasks for the currently scoped project as I show below here:
This behavior is working as designed, however if you uncheck the option to show items from child projects in the project dropdown menu, then it will no longer show the projects under the user. Additionally, if you are scoped to a project without children then the Team Status page will also not show any projects under the user either.
