Consolidate Records

Setting Description
Recently Merged The Recently Merged view displays a list of the most recently merged master and alias records. The default view displays records merged in the past 90 days with 100 records on each page.
Recently Excluded The Recently Excluded view displays a list of the most recently excluded master and alias records. The default view displays records excluded in the past 90 days with 100 records on each page.
Compare Use the Compare link to verify that the records identified are indeed duplicates. The compare view shows standard data as well as custom unique field data for both the Master and Alias records. Data that matches displays with a green background, while data that differs displays with a red background.
Merge The Merge button will merge the Alias record into the Master record. Do this only if you have confirmed that the two records are duplicates
Exclude The Exclude button will exclude this potential match from appearing within Consolidate Records going forward. Use this if you have confirmed that the two records are not duplicates.
<> (Reverse) The Reverse link within the compare view will switch the Master and Alias records, such that the record previously identified as the Alias record will become the Master record. Use this prior to merging the records if you determine that the record identified as the Alias record should instead be the Master record.
Lookup Record The Lookup Record links within the compare view allow you to quickly navigate to the records identified as potential duplicates so that you can more thoroughly compare the two records.
Filters Add filters to restrict the list of duplicate records that are displayed. After editing the filters, click the Display button to refresh the list of displayed records.
Refresh Use the Refresh button to have Slate find potential duplicate records that are new since the last refresh.
