Merging customer records

If you have duplicate records in your list of customers, you can merge the details into one record. When you merge customer records, the following rules apply:

  • The details of the record you choose as the primary record are kept, and the secondary customer record is deleted.
  • If the primary record has a field with no information and information exists in the secondary record, the information from the secondary record is copied to the primary record.
  • If there's conflicting information, for example if both records have different mobile phone numbers, the information in the primary record is kept.

NOTE: Merging cannot be undone.
