I am quite confused with you explanation, anyway will try to answer with what I understood:

  • If you need to send notification for Edit issue to the user selected in the custom field 'Person Assigned' you need to select the "Edit Issue" event. The screenshot shows "Issue Created"
  • The Assignee field can be dynamic and of you have selected "Current Assignee" in the Notificaiton scheme, it will be used for sending any notification. In fact there is not need to have an additional field called 'Present Assignee'

If you can get your usecase explained a bit more, probably we can help.
