Is there a way to limit an RTC work item query to the team area(s) that the user is associated with?

I have seen reports which allow a user to select "My Team Areas" as opposed to a specific team area as a parameter. This would cause the report to limit the results to only those artifacts (eg. work items) in the team areas that the user running the report is a part of.

I have a set of queries which I'd like to share across multiple teams (in the same project) and would prefer not to create separate work item queries with a different team area condition for each team.

We require all postings to have a clear, specific QUESTION in the title field. I've rephrased the title as a proper question.

Team area is determined by the Filed Against attribute and if you add the Filed Against attribute to a query it includes a "Related to Current User" checkbox. This seems like it would do what you need.

Kind of a roundabout way to do it but it seems to work. Thanks.
