    If you delete a user before removing the person record, upon re-importing the user the person record is still linked to the old account and you cannot select it again. Is there any way around this?



    • Open the user record and click Maintain versions
      In the Maintain versions form, you can remove the relation between the user and the worker
      When you refresh the User record, the Person field will be blank and can be re-related with a different worker record
