"Reported by" information for "Copy to Work Item" from a Discussion Post

Nov 26, 2009 at 9:21 AM

Hi all,

  when a discussion post is copied to a work item, the "Reported By" field is displayed as the original author of the discussion post when editing the work item, but is then later changed to the submitter when the issue is finally submitted. It seems to me that preserving the original author would be helpful. The behavior which can currently be observed seems inconsistent.

  Any thoughts?
