Possible addition to the deduper tool?
Open, Needs TriagePublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

@Eileenmcnaughton Donor services has been helping up dedupe some of our large groups. Because we might go to these groups at a later date to prospect for larger gifts we like to make sure we've captured all of the information we might need.
We come across a lot of donors that might have used a combination of their name and their spouses name for 1 of their donations (maybe not the most recent). We'd like to keep that extra name and retain it in the partner field.
Is it possible to add the Partner Field to the fields you see in the deduper and make it editable for someone to add an extra name before merging?

@MBeat33 @NNichols @LeanneS @RLewis we had a poke at this form in fundraising backlog today and added Partner (and nickname actually) to the editable fields on the deduper sub-form

Eileenmcnaughton added subscribers: Cstone, AndyRussG, Ejegg.

@Ejegg @Cstone @AndyRussG I took another look at this & it was that Partner.Partner needed quotes because of the dots - the other field names didn't hence copy & paste didn't win the day

@NNichols have you tested this? Good to close?
