Merge Duplicates Functionality Proposed Improvement

New to the Pipedrive Community and found a proposed functionality improvement that the team here at TurnSignl would greatly value.

 

Two things could be added to the 'Merge Duplicates' functionality that could great improve user experience.

1) Adding a 'Merge All' button

2) Allowing users to customize the fields that are used to determine if a suggested duplicate contact or account is truly duplicative.

 

An example of a helpful unique field that is very predictive of whether a contact or account is duplicative would be their LinkedIn profile URL. John Smith will come up with hundreds of potential matches, but John Smith LinkedIn Profile URL would be a unique identifier that could quickly separate the true match from the hundred of potential matches.

Hope this helps!

    We would highly appreciate that, too. Checking for duplicates by email only or even by name only would be very valuable for our data cleaning processes.

    One addition: If we could then additionally apply that to only a fraction of the data, e.g., to only the contacts added in the last week, that would be a dream come true!

    Thanks. I know I can throw more money at the problem (after I get clearance to use yet another service). However, why not improve a feature that is already there? Especially because engineers can already change the "duplicate criteria" in the backend, making this available to end users seems an obvious improvement.
