How can I update an employee name to include a special character "é" rather than just "e"?

You can probably do it however you managed to do this post here on the Forum.  Try copying the é onto the clipboard and editing the name field for that that one character.

Unfortunately, no.  When I edit the employee name (whether it be with the é or a completely different spelling of the name, it will not save it.  I receive a pop-up notice that "nobody matches."

I think that an Admin for the app  or QuickBase support or a QSP like myself would need to look at your app with you to understand what logic is doing that pop up.  I thought that this was just a data entry field that you were just doing a simple data entry update, but it appears that the app is doing more than that when you enter the name.

Thanks!  Yes, I don't believe it's treating it as an entry update.  The employee name is tied to records/contacts/opportunities within our QB.
