This is the reason why I typically push back against such changes. It turns into random configuration hell. Yes, of course we can add a column for dive master. And a column for combined dive master + buddy (let's call it people). And a column for the ... <insert every other field that we have>.
Sorry if I sound frustrated - I'm not frustrated with you. What you are asking for is a very reasonable request, given that we have added the buddy column. I just wished we hadn't added the buddy column. And I'm not thrilled to repeat that mistake with another one, TBH
