  • Note, if you set weith to ‘0’, then the field will show up in the duplicate list, but the field will not be checked for duplicates. ‘0’ usually is used if the user wants to see additional fields/columns of the duplicate records.

  • Add additional modules if necessary
  • Set the Qualifying weight for the module. This is where you decide how important the field is. For example, in my case both are 5’s, so I put 5 in the Qualifying Weight. This means, if organization name is identical match, then it’s considered as duplicate, same for contact. However, if I would have multiple fields for Organizations, for example “Organization Phone – weight 2.5” and “Organization Name – weight 2.5”, and if the qualifying weight is 5, then both phone and name must be identical match in order for the account to be considered as duplicate.
  • Hit “Next”

  • Duplicate records will be displayed on the next screen. You will be able to keep/merge/ignore/delete the records.
  • Hit “Import Now” to finalize the dedupe and the import.
