Deduplication Rules

Most businesses get data from various resources for any purpose. For example, if you are running a lead campaign, you will receive data from multiple resources such as Facebook, Linkedin, etc. Using these resources, you can bring the data into one specific entity, and it may create duplication chances. All the duplicated documents are identified easily and removed with the help of Deduplication Rules. Deduplication allows record filtering, and deleting, and shows an approximate threshold of similar data. Select the Deduplication menu from the Configuration tab, and you can access the list of all created Deduplication Rules as displayed in the screenshot below.

The Create icon assists you to generate new Deduplication Rules for your data cleaning. On the new page, choose the model that you want to clean data from the Model field. Let's create a Lead/Opportunity model in the Deduplication Rules window. The way of filtering data is a Domain, and you can filter the condition efficiently. You can add filters by selecting on the + Add Filter icon. For example, you can choose a lead created before from the search bar and select the date/time.

Thus, you can develop records eligible for the duplication process from the Domain field. You can also archive the records that have not been modified for the last two years from the Domain field by applying a condition. For this purpose, you can select the Last Updated on condition from the search bar and choose the year. Hence, we get all the records from the last two years, as depicted in the screenshot below.

We can choose the Merge Mode as Manual or Automatic forms. The user is notified when we select the Manual mode and ensure the data is clean. You can choose the reminder for users about data cleaning every week, month or day from the Notify Users field. We can select the users' list from the Notify Users option, and they notify a user when new records merge. Later, apply the percentage for Suggestion Threshold as you need, and similar duplicates below the given value were not considered. The duplication around various countries is suggested for you by activating the Cross-Company option. At the end of the window, you can add Deduplication Rules by selecting the Add a line option.
