When managing attendance tracking data, processing check-ins for attendees with duplicate records is even easier with the Merge Duplicates feature. Administrators can identify duplicates with the same email address, then blend the results into a single entry for easy attendance reconciliation.


TABLE OF CONTENTS


Overview


Merge Duplicate Check-Ins will merge attendance data from attendees with the same email address. The resulting merged record will have:

  • the earliest check-in of the source records
  • the latest check-out of the source records
  • all uniquely entered codewords used across all of the source check-ins


Note: This feature currently only supports merging codewords as a compliance mechanism. Poll responses are not merged.
