Check box no longer available on merging screen!
Closed, ResolvedPublic


@Eileenmcnaughton, the check box that allowed us to move the 'opt-out' if the information attached to the recent donation was different from the previous years is no longer available in the merging screens. With that, Civi is saving whatever was there independent of the accuracy as seen in the screenshot (the opt-out from 2014 was saved after a merge), and we have had to manually change the setting after the merge which adds an extra step to the process and is easy to forget.
Can we have the check box option back or is there something in the works to be implemented? Maybe something has changed that makes this field irrelevant and I'm just not aware of it, just let me know. Thank you.

@Eileenmcnaughton have checked with @SHust and this is moderately urgent

Hey @SHust sorry for the delay at looking at this!

Are you still seeing this? If you are, is it possible at all to get the CIDs of the two records that you are trying to dedupe? That will help us look into this more so we can compare the records on our end.

Hi, @Cstone here are some CIDs that when seen side-by-side you will notice the missing 'check box' for the opt-out attached to the oldest record when the newest is opted-in (we don’t have a way to check the box to save the newest option).

Cstone claimed this task.

I talked to @SHust about the current deduper rule to always keep opt-out as well as how once it gets to acoustic it wouldn't be overwritten by a opt in coming from us, it needs to be done on the acoustic side.
