Summary: When adding a New Assignment Record, the From Combat Unit only displays the current unit, unable to select any other units.
This is good functionality when transferring from current unit, but when adding historical records, it doesn't work. I have to assign myself to the previous unit, then assign again to the new unit, then again to the current unit, and any steps in between, assuming I don't miss one along the way and have to start over! Additionally, the unit has to exist within the database, so any historical combat units that no longer exist, have to be added in to be able to update that record.
An option to just manually type in a historical record without processing of updating current status could solve all these issues.
I'm also contemplating how to denote initial assignment, as there is no "From Combat Unit"
A way to note what rank the soldier was at time of enlistment in the Service Record would be helpful too. Although we can manually add a service Record with the information, it would be helpful to have it added at time of processing the application, as I don't want the group that manages applications to have permissions for the service records. In this case I have to involve another person and step in the process.
