For some context, I work within a small design team who cover the whole of the UK. Our business also offer installation services, with various offices around the country.
I have a list,
Projects, which contains all the projects our department is working on. One of the columns in the list is the county/city in which the works are being completed -
Area. This is a lookup column to another list named
Areas. The reason for a linked-list is so that we can store other information in the
Areas list, such as local specifications etc, and so that the list of areas can be maintained separately.
I want to be able to create a view for the managers of all the individual installation teams to view all the projects we are working on in their area. The intention was to use the "Add a column to show each of these additional fields" checkbox within the
Projects list, on the
Area column, however this doesn't allow me to add a column of lookup type, or person/group type (the two types of column I have tried to use to store the details of the responsible manager).
I really don't want to hard code the managers contact details into the list item in the
Projects list as it isn't anywhere near as maintainable.
