Pivot table conditional formatting, from another sheet?

Hello,

I have a table with many rows and columns. Each row represents a course a user still needs to complete. The row will have the user's name, and a bunch of other columns, including a "People.Temporary" column which indicates if the user is a temporary employee. If the user has more than one course to complete, the user will appear in more than one row, with every cell except the course name cell being the same.

Ex:
People.NameCourse Title
RegionPeople.Temporary
Billy BobSquirrelsNortheastYes
Jilly JillRabbitsSoutheastNo

<tbody>
</tbody>

I have created a Pivot Table for this data to show a breakdown of who still needs to finish their courses. (It is a lot more complex than the table I created). The People.Temporary field is not added to the pivot table. I would like to highlight the people's names in the pivot table that have a "Yes" value in their People.Temporary cells. Remember, there can be many rows per person, but every row will have the same exact values for all columns, except the course name column.

The pivot table is on a different sheet than the data sheet.

Is there a way to achieve what I'm trying to do? If this is possible, could you provide me with a formula I can go off of? thank you!
