I created a list that maintains personnel information and completed training. I use a Person or Group column to prevent misspelled names and future expansion for a workflow. I need to maintain records for 2 years after someone departs. As my list is new I need to capture the historical information within the list. The issue I have is if I generate a record for someone already departed the name is no longer in the GAL. I would like to alternatively Type the name in if they are no longer in the GAL. I was thinking a work-around would be to have 2 fields in the InfoPath form and then merge them in the list to minimize additional columns and redundant information. Does anyone have another idea and how to make it happen?
