Verify Both Matches Have Been Submitted

    • You should end up on the home screen with both matches saying Match in Progress.
    • After the matches finish, the statuses will change to Match Success, and you’ll be able to view your preliminary data health reports.
    • After your matches are complete, we will review your match results to make sure everything looks good and send instructions with the next steps.
    • In the meantime, you can start thinking about the criteria you want us to use to assign ConnectLink Keys to duplicate records.

After the match is complete, you will be able to see a health report directly in AgileInsight. Additionally, our Database Services team will provide a list of possible duplicates that they have identified. Since the ConnectLink Key is a unique identifier in Salesforce, only one record can have a single key. Typically, our clients will develop criteria for how to assign the ConnectLink Key. 

Duplicate criteria are the guidelines we use to decide which record will be assigned the ConnectLink Key. You can use multiple criteria, and you can decide your criteria based on any columns provided to us. below are some commonly used criteria as a starting point:

Accounts

  • Choose the account that has an id for an external website/system (please specify the field)
  • Choose the account with a phone number
  • Choose the account based on created date, activity date, or last modified date (please specify date field and whether to choose newest or oldest)
  • Choose the account with the most address fields populated (please specify which fields)
  • Choose the account with the highest match score

 

Contacts or Leads

  • Choose the contact whose email address is the same as the Agile email address
  • Choose the contact whose email address field is not blank
  • Choose a contact based on created date, activity date, or last modified date (please specify date field and whether to choose newest or oldest)
  • Choose the contact that has an id for an external website/system (please specify the field)
  • Choose the contact with the highest match score

 

Note: No records will be merged or deleted in your Salesforce org.

After receiving duplicate criteria, our Database Services will provide “Load Files” that can be imported into Salesforce to append the ConnectLink Key to each record.
